Apple unveiled its 4th generation iPhone yesterday at its annual Worldwide Developers’ Conference 2010 (WWDC10). Apart from the widely anticipated multi-tasking feature and the addition of a front-facing camera, there were other nice features like the high resolution 326 pixel per inch retina display and HD video recording. More details on the features are available here.

Virus in Windows Smartphone Game

Just read this article about legitimate games built for the Windows Mobile OS.

The games are planted with malicious software. After they are download, the software calls up premium rate phone numbers in certain countries resulting in extremely high phone charges. The user is obviously none the wiser until the phone bill comes later in the month.

In my opinion this incident essentially vindicates Apple’s decision to only allow apps to run on it iPhone, iPod Touch and iPads within a controlled environment. With the approval process that needs to be followed before application can be uploaded into an Apple device, it minimizes the chances of a similar occurrence in an iPhone OS environment.

Animal Alphabets Lite and Fruit Alphabets

Last week was a pretty hectic time for me – we had submitted for approval an app version update for Fruit Alphabets as well as a new lite version of Animal Alphabets.

Apple’s approval times have become quite impressive. The version update i.e. the inclusion of fun facts for Fruit Alphabets was approved within 2 days! Check out the latest version of Fruit Alphabets here.

We are also launching the a new lite version of Animal Alphabets on the App Store soon – 23 March 2010. The fun facts feature is not available on the lite version and it is supported by ads – meaning its free for download at no cost.

Animal Alphabets Lite is our first foray into the ad-supported business model. We had blogged about it earlier (see here) decided to include a lite version of Animal Alphabets for free download after considerable thought – hopefully, it will work out as planned.

Free Versus Fee Business Model

As most of you may know, we are currently deep in the development of our next iPhone application. In the course of the development process, the million dollar question of which business model to adopt in the sale of the app naturally came up.

This has since developed into a serious topic of discussion and we are now considering a change in our business model – from the existing paid download model to a (riskier, some might say) ad-driven, free app model.

So, we checked out the various mobile ad networks that are available and came across AdWhirl (www.adwhirl.com). Now, AdWhirls is not actually a mobile ad provider – instead, it is sort of an ads provider “aggregator” that allows you to serve ads from any ad network – the range of networks include AdMob, JumpTap, Millennial, Quattro Wireless, and VideoEgg. If we do go ahead with the free app model, AdWhirl is quite likely the platform that we will be implementing.

Incidentally, Google announced (see blog article here) in November 2009 that it was acquiring AdMob (which owns AdWhirl) whilst Ad Mob competitor, Quattro Wireless, is being bought by Apple (see article).

Surely, these acquisitions by Google and Apple, who are now competing head to head with their smartphone offerings  - Nexus One and iPhone is an indication of the shape of things to come.

Fruit Alphabets – Waiting For Review

Our latest iPhone app, Fruit Alphabets, which is part of the Alphabets series has been submitted to Apple for review yesterday. At the moment, the app is still waiting for review but we are hopeful that approval will come before the end of February. If the approval time of approximately 6 days for Animal Alphabets 2.0 is any indication, this should not be a problem.

Once approved, Fruit Alphabets would be our first iPhone app launched in 2010 – can’t wait :)

Our Animal Alphabets iPhone app, which we updated to include new features, was approved for downloads by Apple on Friday. It is now available for download on the App Store.

We had submitted the revised version for approval on 1 February. The turnaround time for approval was less than a week – very impressive on Apple’s part :) . Apart from that, our next iPhone application, Fruit Alphabets, is also expected to be launched soon. If things go according to plan, it should be available on the App Store before the end of February – so do come back and visit us soon!

Amidst the buzz after the Tuesday launch of Nexus One, Google’s first Android-based phone, Apple released a media statement on the same saying that 3 billion apps have been downloaded since the launch of the App Store 18 months ago. Its really quite mind boggling. You can read the Apple media statement here.

Plans For 2010

So new year’s eve has come and gone and we are now 3 days into the new year – time surely flies when you’re having fun. Its back to work tomorrow so (as a first blog entry for 2010) I thought it would be good to set out Better Logic’s plans for the year (or at least for the first quarter).

Apart from an updated and improved version of Animal Alphabets, we are planning to launch up to 3 more brand new iPhone applications by the first quarter of 2010. Work on these 3 applications has already begun but progress has been slower than expected (due to the numerous number of public holidays in December 2009). Working backwards after building in the time required for Apple, Inc. to approve apps, this means the apps ideally have to be (substantially) ready  by end-February – so the rush to complete the apps is now on!!

Happy New Year Everyone!! All the best for 2010!!

Animal Alphabets – Now Available on the App Store

Our first iPhone application, Animal Alphabets, was recently approved by Apple and listed on the App Store on 11 December 2009. It was truly a joy to be able to finally find out if there was actually any demand for a product that has taken weeks to develop.

The response so far – although not overwhelming – has been beyond expectations. Apple via iTunes Connect has this nifty feature which allows you to track the number of downloads on daily, weekly and monthly basis. And so I find myself faithfully each day logging in to iTunes Connect to obtain the latest download figures – its a combined feeling of suspense, excitement and fear all at the same time :)

With the listing of the app on the App Store comes new worries e.g. what if no one downloads the app? Action had to be taken – so I recently signed up with Google AdWords, it made sense to start advertising Animal Alphabets. If you’re reading this blog entry, my advise to you is this – delay no longer, download Animal Alphabets now!
