Free vs paid IPhone applications by category





Pinchmedia recently announced new report regarding IPhone applications (take a look at the previous one here). They counted free and paid applications in each category. Guess what the results are:

News and social networking are disproportionately free, since it's difficult to charge for content that's freely available elsewhere and social networks grow in value with the number of participants. Entertainment and games are disproportionately paid, reflecting a belief that people will pay money to have fun. Since the AppStore's applications are disproportionately entertainment and games (helped along by a lot of $0.99 e-books), the AppStore's applications are predominantly paid. The most common price for an application in the 'games' category is still $9.99, although the second-most common price is $1.99.

IPhone applications are in iTunes Store



Here are the news from Apple: "When the iPhone 3G goes on sale tomorrow, more than 500 native applications will be available on the revolutionary new App Store — including more than 125 free applications."

But the applications are already there!! Because in some parts of the world it is already July 11. And what is great, there are many free applications. For example, Remote, AIM, Google Mobile, NYTimes, Myspace Mobile.

Users can download applications directly from new IPhones or through iTunes.

Not only Java for now



Hello, everybody!

There were many visitors to Java4IPhone site recently. This is great! I like the idea, that this site is useful. Most visitors are from the US and Russia (since there are 2 languages supported). But I see quite a lot of interest from all over the world: Europe, China, India, even Kuwait and Maldives :)

So I decided to extend the site news to everything that is IPhone related. For those who is interested only in Java on the IPhone there is a category Java+IPhone with subcategory Java Applications.

Stay tuned and have fun.

To be or not to be?



java iphone

We are all waiting too see Java logo on our IPhones. I do too. But... there are obstacles and restrictions. The main point is that Sun really wants see Java on the IPhone. Community wants to see it. Large companies want to be able to create Java based applications. This is a huge market. However there will be probably no Java if Apple doesn't want it to be. That's what I've heard from a vice president of Sun Microsystems. The good news is that Sun wants to be ready with Java for the IPhone in case of everything will go well. So I assume there are investigations and probably some development going on already. And of ofcourse lawers are working hard too :-) .

So what about Apple? Apple will be able to make money with Java. There is a huge market and big money. Enterprise solutions, regular applications and etc. Everybody will benefit from it. We'll see quite soon, what will happen.
