Dan Counsell, the founder of Realmac Software, the company producing applications for iOS and OS X, shared very interesting observations on his company blog about the “featured” section in the App Store.
Realmac Applications has been recommended several times by Apple in the App Store and Dan, basing on this experience, has selected 5 reasons that may help Apple to choose your application. They are the following:
Build a Great App – obvious, but must be met
Target the “Latest And Greatest” – Dan mentions iCloud, but using Newsstand will be equally good
Most likely when researching the possibilities connected with publishing magazines on mobile devices (iPad and iPhone) you have been able to observe two trends: native and web apps. Today I’ll try to describe the pros and cons of these two approaches to facilitate your choice.
Today there are two trends in the field of magazine apps for iPad; the first one is creating dedicated applications, and the other one is about web apps. In today’s entry we will investigate the first approach, and take a look at the process of adding an application to the App Store.
In PressPad, each of our customers receives their own application. When you decide to order your own app, you get a native app for the iPad and iPhone, that utilizes the Newsstand, Push Notification Service, background downloading, and more.
PressPad was created so that publishers no longer need to register as Apple Developers, hire programmers and be bothered about the App Review Guidelines. We take care of this ourselves, so you may focus on the things really important for you – your magazine content.
