Apple dominating Android with 84 percent of mobile gaming revenue | New Digital Media | Scoop.it
There’s a reason why so many developers feels iOS users are more valuable than Android: Apple is killing it in mobile gaming with 84 percent of all mobile gaming revenue in the US.

 

“When analyzing Apple’s successful monetization, there is one dominant factor outside of differences in audience demographics and preferences: Apple requires users to connect their credit card information directly to their account, thus creating a seamless purchase experience,” said Newzoo chief executive Peter Warman in a statement.

Apple Games Converge With Android Using HTML 5 as IPad Rejects Flash: Tech

Pity the programmer. The path used to be so clear. After coming up with the next billion-dollar software idea, the only decision left was whether to build it for just Microsoft Corp. (MSFT)’s Windows or Apple Inc. (AAPL)’s Mac as well.
Now the options are far more diverse. Mobile platforms like Apple’s iOS, Google Inc. (GOOG)’s Android, and Windows Phone all vie for coders’ attention alongside desktop operating systems and Web hubs such as Facebook Inc. Each one requires time, and often a different skill set.
The challenge is particularly acute in video games, where iPhone users expect to be able to interact with their friends even if they’re using a different device. Michael Carter, a 27- year-old software engineer, says he has a solution in HTML 5, Bloomberg Businessweek reports in its Feb. 27 issue.

What Apple Got Right and Wrong with iCloud

What Apple Got Right and Wrong with iCloud | New Digital Media | Scoop.it

For those of us who remember the debacle that was Apple’s launch of the now-replaced MobileMe. the initial iCloud launch is undoubtedly leagues ahead of the chaos and server failures that accompanied the arrival of Apple’s previous cloud service. iCloud seems to be more robust, but does it actually do what most of us want?

 

First, let’s take a quick look at the good parts of iCloud before moving onto the bad and the crazy…

Analyst Brian White with Ticonderoga Securities has been touring China and Taiwan and meeting with component suppliers, where he has heard rumblings of a so-called "iPad mini" arriving next year.

Amazon Did Not Build Its Kindle Fire Tablet to Be an iPad Killer

Amazon Did Not Build Its Kindle Fire Tablet to Be an iPad Killer | New Digital Media | Scoop.it

What is going to propel the Amazon Kindle Fire into the limelight is price. There is no doubt in my mind that the Apple iPad is a superior product. But what Amazon is offering is an inexpensive alternative for those who do not want nor can afford the more expensive Apple iPad. Think about it this way: You can buy two Amazon Kindle Fire tablet computers for less than the cost of one Apple iPad. In addition, you can pocket $100 that you can use to buy applications.
