Apple fait des cadeaux…mais ne les paye pas !

Appstore 5 AnsAlors que notre cher Président peine dans sa première année, Apple, lui, fête le succès de son AppStore qui vient de boucler son premier quinquennat. Eh oui, déjà 5 ans que l’AppStore existe et nous inonde d’applications pour nos petits devices à la pomme. Bien que l’iPhone soit sorti en 2007, l’AppStore, lui, a ouvert ses portes le 10 juillet 2008 avec seulement 500 applications (mais 10 millions de téléchargements le premier week-end). En 5 ans, le chiffre est monté à 50 milliards de téléchargements et 900 000 Applications (en mai dernier).

Pour fêter cela, la firme de Cupertino a décidé de nous offrir des applications. Mais attention, pas questions, ici, de nous faire des cadeaux au rabais. Non ! Les applications proposées sont des Hit-parades et même, parfois, des titres plutôt onéreux en temps normaux. Au programme, 5 jeux (Badland, Jetez-vous à l’eau, Sword & Sorcery, Tiny Wings et le superbe Infinity Blade II) et 5 applications (Atlas du Monde, Day One, How to Cook Everything, Over  et l’onéreux Traktor DJ).

Mais pour la petite histoire, parce qu’il faut toujours une petite histoire, ces applications ne vous sont pas offertes par Apple mais par leurs développeurs, comme l’a révélé Max Whitby, CEO de Touch Press, éditeur de l’Atlas du Monde, à ABC News

En effet, Apple n’a fait que sélectionner les éditeurs qui rendent leurs applications gratuites tout au long de la semaine.

Certes, cela fait un peu “pingre” pour la première capitalisation mondiale, mais les développeurs ne s’en plaignent pas puisque cette opération est un énorme coup de projecteur sur leur application. Être dans le Top 10 sur près d’un milliard, cela n’a pas de prix.

    I am very happy I came across this during my search for something
    relating to this.

  30. I was wondering if you ever considered changing the layout of your blog?
    Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.
    But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with
    it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1 or 2 pictures.

    Maybe you could space it out better?
