In early December, I took a look at Appular’s puzzle Title, Push Panic. Instead of its original $1.99 price tag which I thought was a steal, for today only it’s completely free. Yes, free for this amazing title! Here is some from my review: The classic mode has you playing
With so many applications flooding the app store each day, it’s definitely difficult to pick and choose the good ones. Often, some amazing ones drift past without being noticed while others pick up attention immediately. Bee Patrol with it’s colorful artwork and fun premise is hard to miss: it’s got
ABI Research says worldwide iPhone sales fell from 18.1% to 16.6% in the fourth quarter of 2009. While sales still continued to grow at a decent rate, the market grew faster, bringing the percent of sales that were iPhones down in comparison. The market grew by 26%, thanks in part to Motorola's release of their new Android handsets.
According to a new report from DigiTimes, Apple is due to sell more than 10 million iPhones in this fiscal quarter alone. Apple has been attempting to broaden their distribution from one quarter to the next, and now they have successfully done so in China and South Korea, as well as adding carriers in the UK and Canada.
Black Friday (a.k.a., the beginning of the U.S. holiday shopping season, a.k.a. "El Stampede") is only a few hours away and assorted retailers have begun assembling a variety of iPhone and iPod-related accessory and app specials. So, without further ado, here's the list as far as we know:
Apple has announced that in the first weekend of being on sale, the iPhone 3G S has sold over one million units. They also note that six million of their customers downloaded the free iPhone OS 3.0 software within the first five days of it's release. Notably, the announcement includes a statement from Steve Jobs.
Despite what would seem to be far shorter lines, O2 UK has revealed that as of noon local time they have already sold more iPhone 3G S handsets than they did for the entire day of the iPhone 3G launch last year. By the end of the day, they estimate sales to be 50% more than last year. Meanwhile, AT&T says they have pre-sold "hundreds of thousands" of the devices prior to today, leading AppleInsider to speculate that they could easily sell more than a million of them in just the first three days.
According to information gathered by mobile research group Pinch Media, the average free app downloaded from the App Store has a less than 5% chance of being used for greater than 30 days after it was first downloaded. The group collected information from more than 30 million app downloads that they tracked as part of their analytics services they provide to developers, and the trends they found were pretty surprising.
AT&T announced today that despite the poor state the economy is in, the iPhone and iPhone 3G has continued to drive growth in company by drawing in new high-profit subscribers to their 2 year contracts. The company says they have activated .9 million new iPhones during the quarter, less than the previous 2.4mil for Q3, but still played a significant role.
Author and analyst Trip Chowdry is saying that Apple may begin selling iPhone 3Gs through U.S. retail chain Costco for $149 starting in January of next year. We don't have his report, but it's been noted that it mentions the bleak economic outlook and it's negative effect on the tech industry. Although analysts study Apple closely, their predictions may only be based on speculation. [via MacRumors]
