The average price for the iPad app increased from $4.34 in April 2010 to $4.97 in October 2010 (+14.5%). Prices for the iPhone apps increased only from $3.94 to $4.03 (+2.3%). Moreover, now developers prefer to create applications compatible only with the iPad. Although iPhone apps cost less than their iPad counterparts, the iPad only accounts for 13% of the total 300,000 apps available in the App Store, and just 7 percent of all apps are universal.

Check Out The Best Apps Ever In Apple’s New Official “App Store Hall Of Fame”



hall of fame

If you ever wondered what Apple thought were the very best apps of the last two years, there’s now a list for that. Apple has launched a new section of the iTunes App Store, a Hall of Fame, containing everything iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad from Angry Birds to Zen Bound 2. There are around 50 apps honored so far and includes news, travel, sports, entertainment, productivity, and of course, lots of great games. The list includes both free and paid apps. Apple did a great job selecting these. Of course, they were probably helped by the massive app sales data they have. Most, if not all of the apps, are fairly “obvious” choices that you probably already own.

What app is now on the top of the list? No wondering, it is Angry Birds.

Apple Investigating Issue With Monster Headphones



monster headset

Apple is now investigating an issue with a number of Monster-branded headphones for the iPhone, iPod touch and iPad. These include those under Monster’s Lil Jamz, Jamz, Turbine and Heartbeat lines. As reported, the abovementioned Monster headphone models do not satisfy Apple’s technical specifications. These headphones use conductive materials, which can result in electrical shorts that cause an iPod or iPhone to pause and play erratically, skip forward or back through songs. Customers may not be aware that the issue is caused by the headphones and may believe that the iPod or iPhone is defective instead. Moreover, Apple received lots of complaints from customers, who believe that the issue is caused by their Apple device. In addition, Apple mentioned that these headphones do not endanger safety of the iPod or iPhone and could not damage devices.

macbookair1

Few hours ago Steve Jobs presented two new MacBook Airs, which became the result of hooking up the iPad and a MacBook (according to his words). They have neither hard nor optical drive, as they keep all the data on the solid state drive. Here is how Steve Jobs explained such an innovation:

"MacBook Air is the first of a new generation of notebooks that leaves behind mechanical rotating storage in favor of solid state flash storage. We’ve taken what we have learned with the iPad—solid state storage, instant-on, amazing battery standby time, miniaturization and lightweight construction, to create the new MacBook Air.
