Ignore the report. The article actually champions Apple and says App Store is a great thing, but warns that too much of a good thing can be bad.

The reporter is clearly an Apple fan boy.

Greed, yes. Inferior ports - check. Love having bespoke touch screen games in my pocket though.

Inferior? All square enix games have improved texture and performance from their ds and psp counter part. Gta3 has touched up textures and chinatown wars looks alot better from the ds plus the touch screen is a bonus. I havent seen a lot of inferior ports except for maybe dead rising but thats because it was a console game.

apple and gaming , these two words just dont go together , apple and ripoff now these two sound much better together.

The guy who wrote the article has a bit of a chip on his shoulder and needs to calm down. Yes the app store could be organized better but it's still great.

One thing that really bugs me though that he didn't mention was people giving a game 1 star because the game crashed on their device. This happens a lot and usually the problem gets patched quickly but then the game which might have been wonderful gets over looked if it averages below 4 stars.

And I don't agree every game has to be new and not a port. I'm having a blast playing GTA3 on iOS and I was more than happy to break the 69p rule and pay £2.99 for it. Truth is people don't want to risk more than 69p because there really is some rubbish on there and you could quite easily end up getting stung.

The way games are rated needs improvement and maybe a media score section would help us decide which games to get as I agree the public can't always be trusted. They are a whining set of cry babies by and large.

He says App Store is great.

Reviews from media outlets can't always be trusted either.

The article is totally the opposite of what you'd expect from the headline.In my opinion,this shouldn't have been improved...guess most people just approve an article by reading the title.

Wouldn't say it's totally the opposite man, it's pretty balanced - some good points, some bad points. It's not that bad.
