iTunes App Store begins accepting iOS 4-compatible apps for review


Apple has sent out a notice to developers advising them that the iTunes App Store has begun accepting iOS 4 binaries for submission and review:

Submit your iOS 4 apps for review so they can be ready for sale when iOS 4 is available to iPhone and iPod touch users. Make sure you have built and tested your applications using iOS 4 and iPhone SDK 4 GM seed, which you can download from the iPhone Dev Center.

Log in to iTunes Connect and upload your iOS 4 applications today.

iOS 4 is scheduled for release on June 21, once again developers aren't likely to get much sleep, especially if trying to once again implement new features for a device they don't have and can't yet test.

(The effort is much appreciated.)

iTunes App Store begins accepting iOS 4-compatible apps for review


AT&T needs to update their Mark the Spot app. It doesn't work at all in 4.0. Lord knows I use it frequently because Houston's network has gotten worse in the last several months for me.

I never knew just how many people actually used the Mark the Spot app. It definitely does not work on iOS4 bc I did try it when I needed it and it failed. iBooks is also having an interesting situation. On the App Store I got a notification asking me to download iBooks. While the app was downloading, an error message appeared so the app just dissapeared and it's not on the App Store. It hopefully will be out soon along with the rest of the iOS4 apps and updates. Can't wait to finally get multitasking an some of my apps that desperately need it if the devs decide to update the apps.

iOS 4 is only out for developer units at the moment, so there shouldn't be an issue.
Hopefully AT&T like all devs is testing and will update and submit a new version for launch day.

So I'm not the only one! I used to brag to my friends in NYC and SF about how good AT&T service was in Houston, but I've probably had more dropped calls in the last 6 months than in the 2.5 years prior to that. I don't know what's going on, but I definitely see a disturbing trend in AT&T's call quality lately. I guess this is what the rest of the country has been complaining about.
I didn't know about the Mark the Spot app, though. I already installed the iOS 4 GM, which I LOVE, so I guess I'll have to wait until AT&T updates it to try it out.
