Our own Gideon Kowadlo was featured in the November edition of APC Mag. From the article:

When investigating who to use to develop APC’s iPad application a few month ago, we asked Apple for recommendations on developers. Melbourne-based Outware was one of the suggested companies.

Recommendations don’t come much better than that!

Kevin C. Tofel asks ‘Why should you care about smartphone market share as a consumer’?

There are a number of factors, but I think the main one is software…Developers are following the sales figures because the better selling platforms offer a wider audience interested in the apps being developed and sold.

He uses the latest Gartner market share data to illustrate that there are only three fast growing mobile platforms; BlackBerry, iPhone and Android.

IDC’s latest survey of Worldwide Converged Mobile Device Market sees the iPhone as reaching 14.4% marketshare, just over 5% less than RIM. Interestingly, Apple’s marketshare increased by a staggering 97% for the year, compared to RIM who grew less than half as quickly.

Apple’s iconic iPhone added another chapter to its short history by nearly doubling its shipments from the same quarter a year ago,” the report said. “Demand for the Apple iPhone continued unabated during the holiday quarter, and agreements with multiple carriers within the same market enabled further distribution. The fourth quarter also saw the launch of the iPhone at one of the world’s largest carriers: China Unicom.”
