Developers, start working on improving your keyword choices and (potentially annoying) plans to get five-star user reviews since Apple has been fiddling with the App Store's method for sorting applications over the past two weeks. With an adjusted algorithm in-tow, the App Store no longer emphasizes application names in the order it lists aps. Instead, the more finely-tuned search system has been placing its sorting weight on user ratings, keywords, and app descriptions.
Starting tomorrow, the International Mac Podcast will begin streaming a live, twelve-hour audio show about all things iPhone, Mac, and everything in between. Stu Helm was gracious enough to ask me to be a guest for one of those hours to talk about the iPhone with the wonderful Andy Ihnatko. Our segment will begin at 1PM Pacific and last for one hour, so tune in at 1 Pacific! Lots of our other friends—including Adam Christianson, Jeff Gamet, and Mac OS Ken Ray—will be doing separate hours throughout the day, so be sure to check out the schedule.
The stream begins at 8AM Pacific and ends at 8PM and you can listen and chat live here.
