My take on the Apple App Store and its Apps

Ok, Let my rant begin:

Apple & Developers:

We do not need more tip calculators.
We do not need more sudoku games.
We could use a few more unit conversion apps.

I don't know any other way to say it:

The app store is great, but I hope that apple has a plan to start removing some of the underperforming apps. It is beginning to be a pain to deal with the overwhelming quantity of apps to find the one that you want.

I use the rss feed from pinch media to keep track of what new apps have been released. If I find one that perks my interest, I then fire up the iPhone app store and tap search and enter the title of the app.

Also, when you have a lot of apps installed on the device it can be a tad overwhelming flicking through many pages of apps to find the one that you want to launch. I find the desire to have more than 4 apps in the dock.

I hope that the future holds some improvement in these areas . . .

Quiet evening at home ...

My darling wife, Beth is having dinner out with a girlfriend of hers
tonight. This leaves me unattended at home. Alone.

I decide to grill a steak for dinner. I get the grill going and find
myself in the middle of a wasp swarm.

I finish dinner, and the Internet goes down.

I call comcast and they say there is an outage. No DUH.

I decide to blog about my happy evening. Down to the only device that
can connect to the outside world, my iPhone, I fire up safari and get
nearly done typing my post, and it decides to kick me back to the home
screen loosing all my text.

It has to be me!

Posting this via email as it is what I am down to.

I think I'll head to bed, but I am worried the ceiling fan might fall
on me ...
