    Think Facebook's Joe Hewitt giving up on iPhone development was a one time thing? At the very l east it's a ground rule double as Rouge Amoeba has announced that they too are ceasing iPhone development on account of Apple's App Store policies. What exactly did Rouge Amoeba make? Their iPhone baby, Airfoil Speakers Touch 1.0 allows iPhone/iPod Touch users to pick up broadcasted audio from their Mac or Pc. A handy app no doubt. After they released the first version, the realized that ther...

    If there was ever a perfect example of hell freezing over, this is it. After months and months of harsh criticisms stemming from the god awful review process and absolute lack of any communication, it seems Apple is finally starting to listen to the very people that have catapulted the iPhone to what it is. Starting today, Apple is making steps towards a more transparent app approval process and communication with devs. I wouldn't exactly call it transparent yet, more like opaque. Still, it'...

    Well that was fast. If you recently picked up a Zune HD, you have a new game to look forward to. Wordmonger, a word puzzle game by Foundation 42 has successfully been ported to the Zune HD from it's iPhone counterpart. The nifty factoid: it was completed from start to finish in 12 hours! Talk about getting a leg up on the situation. Because Microsoft is currently keeping the Zune app market (or lack thereof) under tight control, interested hopefuls will have to download the developers kit i...

    How about another follow up? The post from yesterday regarding the Microsoft Marketplace kill switch and the ability to remotely uninstall apps led to a flurry of fears and concerns yesterday. I will admit outright I had some pretty big concerns as the ability to do such a thing comes with great responsibility that has the potential to be misused quite easily. Luckily Microsoft has taken the time to reach out and clarify a bit more as to the usage of "the switch". From the horses mouth: ...

    With all of the publicity surrounding Apple, the iPhone, Google, and the rejection of the Google Voice app from the App Store, one can understand why other platforms such as Android and BlackBerry are tooting their horns happily crying out regarding their support for the Apple shunned service. Naturally, those who are trying to catch up to the success that has rained down on Apple and the iPhone (pretty much everyone), have begun talking up the fact that Google Voice will work flawlessly on t...

    Now that the Android Marketplace will start taking on paid apps, many are fearing that all of the freebies will be quickly replaced by waves of pay applications that will cost an arm and a leg and at times part of a torso.  Fret not as an emerging team of developers over at Froogloid (Frugal + Android...Get it!) who are bringing a level of affordability to the marketplace from the get go.  They are a devoted team of developers who are looking to change the world and the Android Marketplac...
