The new AppStore, redesigned for iOS6, has been out for just over a week now. Speaking recently at 360iDev, I stressed the importance of great shelf design in the AppStore as part of your marketing plan. Getting to know the new design is key to understanding how it will affect browsing, discovery, and buying habits, especially for developers, but also for consumers. I've been playing with the store all week, on several devices, including the new iPhone5, the iPad, and my old iPhone4. I've found, sales-wise, that some things have improved, some have been unaffected. The new AppStore was obviously designed with the iPad in mind—the cards work/look so much better on the iPad—there's more screen real estate, especially in landscape, so the the side scrolling is a plus. The iPhone5's speed was most likely a huge consideration—the new store screams on the iPhone5, but is slow and kludgy on the iPhone4. (I shudder to think how it is on the 3GS.) On older devices, the icons are slow to load; it reminds me of surfing the web on dial-up (well maybe not THAT slow). The new AppStore includes a few areas only previously exposed and featured on the desktop iTunes store—the “What's New?” and “What's Hot?” per category. We've been featured in this area with each of our new releases, but alas these apps have had little exposure because who shops via iTunes desktop any more? This post will cover details on what's new, what's missing, how it affects our app shopping experiences, and how as a developer we can maximize our sales potential by redesigning and focusing on certain areas of our shelf space.

I last mentioned I was one of the speakers at the 2012 360 iDev iOS developer conference. The session videos are now available on the 360iDev website. If you want to listen to my talk & see my slides on "Applying the 4P's of Marketing to Apps" you can download the video via the 360iDev website. There are a ton of great talks to choose from. Well worth a listen.
No, I haven't dropped off the face of the earth. I've just stopped blogging while on an epic 6-1/2 week working vacation. Cory did most of the working, I did the driving. We travelled with our family of five out west, camping and sightseeing, then stayed with family in the Seattle area for a chunk of the time. Remember I mentioned we were going to test out Trip Boss? Well, this was the vacation I'd alluded to. I'll be putting together a post-mortem of our travelling with Trip Boss experiences in the upcoming months (I'm still digging out of email, etc., tho we did check it remotely.).

I just got back from a four day scout camping adventure with my son. It was nice to get away from technology for a while, but while I was gone, Apple changed their AppStore search algorithm! Our sales dropped by at least $30/day, which may not seem like a lot, but it adds up to $900/month, which is a major drop in income for a family trying to make a living off of the AppStore.
