All your smartphone are belong to us! Apparently no one is using their smartphone to be productive, they just want to play games!
According to Nielsen research, games continue to be the most popular app category while productivity apps find themselves on the lower rungs of the ladder. This of course doesn’t surprise me one bit, what does surprise me is the fact that 93% of the people downloading games are actually willing to pay for them! Hear that developers? You’re more likely to get paid off of games vs. any other category. Chop, chop, start churning out those games!
We’re always hearing (mostly by competitors) about how “fragmentation” is hurting Android, but in reality, it’s this “fragmentation” that is providing vast choices to the Android consumer. One of those “choices” happens to be Amazon’s App Store. In the beginning, many Android users were wondering where the Amazon App Store would fit in and whether or not another “App Store” was necessary. Then Amazon announced its promotional “Free App of the Day” and Android users began taking notice. Before you knew it, everyone and their mother was downloading the Amazon App Store just so they could get the “Free App of the Day.” It’s now almost the only reason why anyone even uses the Amazon App Store and it’s this very mentality which prompted Android Tapp and its parent company AsSeenOnPhone Inc. to begin analyzing the Amazon App Store and its “Free App of the Day” program.
A leaked Qualcomm roadmap highlighting future chipsets and their possible release times made a brief appearance before ultimately being pulled.

It would seem that Taiwan, like most Android users, disagrees heavily with Google’s 15-minute app refund policy. In fact, they have deemed it unlawful and have slapped Google with a hefty fine (US$345,500) for not complying with a June 4th request to revise their app sales and service provisions.

Anyone remember that rumor about HTC’s female-centric experiment codenamed “Bliss?” Well, it seems that another female-based HTC phone has been spotted hanging in a closet, which gives us the hint of a female target audience. Anyway, not much (if anything) is known about this “glamorous” device, …
I’m sure by now you’ve heard about Verizon’s plan to adopt tiered data pricing. The blogs have been buzzing about it, readers have been flaming about it, and trolls… well… they’ve been trolling about it. I can’t say I’m surprised about the move, considering I’ve been a guinea pig to corporate greed for many years now. I’m often asking myself: “Why do I allow these companies to continually rip me off?” And, like most people, I just sit there and take it. Sure, we’ll complain about it, but do we ever do anything about it? I mean, if Verizon is such a bastardization of a company, why don’t we just switch carriers?
