iOS 8 - A Bundle of Joy for Developers?

"In less than a week we'll see the release of iOS 8, with its many functional additions and improvements. There is one feature that I feel has so far been under appreciated, but one which I believe has the potential to bring about a lot of positive change to the App Store environment, and the shopping habits of iOS customers. It's the new ability for developers to be able to sell bundles of apps, as opposed to just one at a time. How is such a simple change going to effect iOS sellers and buyers?" - Grab It

I'm really quite looking forward to the new OS and also seeing what the new APis and Metal bring to the gaming table. Most interested I have been in an update for ages.

What excites me the most is metal. I don't know a lot about it at this stage. But from what I've heard, it could revolutionise gaming on our iPads. Can't wait to hear more.

WeAreLegion1070d ago

Didn't Metal already happen? They unveiled it last year.

An actual update with benefits to 'real' devs. Nice one and a long time coming I say

Surprising such a simple idea took so long to come to the table. Better late than never I guess. I think it will be a much used function by developers

Off topic but I wonder what an Apple console would be like, it would be interesting if they join the big three next gen.

Funantic11070d ago

They would dominate especially if they incorporate Apple mobile purchases into the console. Apple has the most money even more than MS. Apple is also very innovative. There have been rumors about Apple creating a console.

I wish Apple would make a powerful game console. The quality and software would be unmatched. Then again the price would be massive and Apple IMO believes in Mobile and less in a stationary console.

This doesn't make sense.... Nobody wants to play pocket games on their console.

Have you seen games on Mac in shops or even their own store, they're anaemic at best?

PC games are flogging it and PC games don't sell as well as the console games.

There's a reason why they wont get into the console business, they cant get developers to support their desktops and laptops, so how would they break into the market and take over, let alone get developers to support them. Geez, poor Ninty have trouble getting developers to support them, so how would a newcomer go.

@irishyort - at last someone with intelligence & common sense.

On topic, what a horrible article, written by someone who's obviously in marketing & completely out of touch.
