John Myers

Hey all-

Welcome to my blog. The fine folks at the BeyeNETWORK™ have provided me with this forum to offer opinion and insight into the worlds of telcommunications (telecom) and business activity monitoring (BAM). But as with any blog, I am sure that we (yes we... since blogging is a "team sport"...) will explore other tangents that intersect the concepts of telecom and BAM.

In this world of "Crossfire" intellectual engagement (i.e. I yell louder therefore I win the argument), I will try to offer my opinion in a constructive manner. If I truly dislike a concept, I will do my best to offer an alternative as opposed to simply attempting to prove my point by disproving someone else's. I ask that people who post to this blog follow in my lead.

Let the games begin....

How do you make $$ via phone app development?  So do a lot of the application developers looking to find some of the "Gold in Them Thar Hills" on iPhone App Store and Android Marketplace.

For the iPhone developer, there’s a clear method to make $$.  However, what isn’t necessarily clear is the process that Apple goes through to approve an app.  It appears that while Apple is a benevolent dictatorship… It still is a dictatorship with strong, but a sometimes strange grip ( ie see the ill fated Pepsi app for Amp… )

Despite the “big bucket of does” that the Droid promises, the Android development community isn’t the happiest group in the world.  It appears that, while the Android Marketplace is more ‘friendly’ from an approval process than the App Store, the experience isn’t all that it is cracked up to be and the revenues aren’t really there at this point in time.

My Take…

While these are core issues for smart-phone app developers, this is still the initial stages of these marketplaces.  Both of them will improve and standardize with time.  This is going to a great market place for content, applications and innovation for years to come.

What do you think of these marketplaces?
