why is the app store sooo silly ?

Postby mc007 » Mon Oct 25, 2010 12:33 am

yeah, here I am and I am just wondering why google's tec is behind apples ?

- i can't set pricing schedules
- the ranking doesn't seem to be very reasonable
- 2 screen shots only (sorry, but thats very bad)
- already too many trash out there
- I can't pay without gmail account
- no proper sales stats
- the app store it self appears quit ....
- no space to describe the app properly
- .... and so forth

I understand that g wants to push its os forward but seriously is there any improvement to expect for publishers?

Watch some videos of the new app store.. I suspect major renovations are finally about to appear. I couldn't agree more with you though. Most notably the 2 screen shot limit and having to describe sometimes complex applications inside basically 2-3 sentences is asinine.

tencent, are you talking about Android Gingerbread? I did a quick search and can only find rumor's and guesses about a 'new market' nothing solid. If you have a video please link!
