Apple’s September 10th Event
- Invites went out. I assume you recieved one?
- I hear through the Twitter’s you have some sources who told you some things about the new iPhone’s. Care to share what you know?
- Why do you think Apple’s focusing on color as a big feature?
- Do you expect any surprises, or have we heard it all at this point?
- What do you think?
- A lot of attention has been given to the new UI, but what about features?
- Control and Notification Center
- iCloud Keychain
- iTunes Radio
- Siri (Bing search, web results, etc.)
The ‘next’ event
- iPad 5th gen and iPad mini retina
- Mac Pro
- Haswell based Macbook Pros
Apple’s next “big” thing
- Do you think it’s fair how much pressure media and analysts have seem to put on Apple requirement to innovate?
- What’s your thoughts on the Smartwatch space and Apple’s possible role in it?
- What about television?
The “new App order”
- You may not have heard me talk about this, but for a while developers and customers have had complaints about the new ways of selling and marketing apps created by some of the limitations created by Apple’s App market rules
- Specifically, lack of free trials, in ability to offer paid upgrades, race to the bottom pricing, the rise of “freemium”.
- Over the years we’ve seen developers get creative about solutions.
- Seems like now we are poised to accept Apple’s model, issues and all, as the new App order. Meaning this is just how software is done moving forward. No trails, cheaper pricing, subscription software, same price for all new version pricing.
- What do you think?
- The other alternative might be push back to more traditional models?
- I’m fascinated by the stories of how and App goes from idea to product and you have such a story.
- You actually created an App, called ReadQuick. It’s been out on iPad and was recently updated for iPhone.
- What is ReadQuick and where did the idea for the app start?
- Where do you even start to take this idea and covert it into an App? I assume you didn’t go out and learn Xcode and Objective-C.
- How do you find collaborators?
- How long did it take to go from idea to app on the App Store?
- You obviously chose to go iPad only first, why?
- What was the conversion from iPad to iPhone like?
- Was it easier or more complex than you thought it might be?
- Would it have been easier to start with a “universal” app from the beginning?
- What have you learned about the “marketing” of an app?
- How much do you think your position in the Mac and tech communities help or not?
