A bit of 'Bizness' for you today – Apple CEO Tim Cook has been informing Twitter about how much money developers have made through the App Store.

Maybe engage your brain before quoting a ridiculous figure.

Ah, nice spot!

Seems I didn't pay as much attention as I thought I did, although in my defence (not that it amounts to much) Develop made the same mistake. Serves me right though.

Cheers Dusteki!

ON soap-box mode

And yet searching the App store remains a complete hit/miss mess. I wonder how many useful apps (including games) that I have missed because the App store is hard to search. Right now the App store caters to Whale App developers - so smaller independent developers get lost too easily in it's mire.

Expanding the search parameters would help significantly. As would the store being able to show discounted apps (via search, etc).

I also question some of the store definitions - as "war" games are typically found under simulation versus strategy section of games.

... 500 releases a day? I guess we better pick up the pace. How many games do you think we can review in a day?
Given the apparent quality, business model and genre of 95% of said 500 releases we are just doing fine I think. ;-P

Millennial is spelled with two N's, smart guy.
