App Store make Remote connection with iTunes

Now that App Store is out as part of iTunes 7.7 release, we are getting to see all the good things.

Here is a quick survey of first impressions:

figured out multiple library support. PowerTunes does similar job but doesn't come with the App Store magic (soon?).

There is, however, support for multiple libraries. When you start up Remote after associating with a library, it’ll take a second to reconnect, during which time you can change which library you want to use (you can also tap the Settings button in the top left corner of any list screen). That’ll give you the option to add multiple libraries, delete existing associations, and toggle a “Stay Connected” preference (not precisely sure what that does at present).

Holly Jackson says you can sing your way to search results:

With the new Midomi Mobile application, iPhone users can find an artist or song with voice or text search. The app also has the ability to "grab" a recording of a song to use for search. Users just have to hold their iPhone up to a speaker and submit the music clip.

This is disruptive at many levels and not surprisingly this has caused heart burn across the tech industry. Apple competitors are rushing to make press announcements or just plotting their own mobile strategy.
Activision Blizzard hopes to take on iTunes. Well we will see about that!

Apple App Store Will Challenge iTunes Marketplace? Yes It Can.

Filed under: iphone — Tags: , , , , , — admin @ 6:27 pm

Apple is growing fast. They are rolling out products faster than any other company out there. One fall out of that speed is the confusion between product lines. Now that 3G iPhone release is just on the horizon, expectation is that this will bring clarity on how Apple will map out integration strategy between App store and iTunes.

App Store will be accessible as part of the iPhone 2.0 software. Thousands of developers have downloaded iPhone SDK and approved applications will be listed on App store gallery.

Looking at this description, Apple is planning to allow listing of applications in iTunes catalog. Very much on the lines of existing movies and songs directory. This will draw more users into iPhone marketing. For those not having iPhones, they will be able to view this catalog. Developers will love this feature as this will allow them another marketing channel.

Jim Goldman, at CNBC,  thinks App store could be a major channel for Apple -

Fact is, Apple’s new App store could become a major new revenue stream for the company and those posting programs on it. Many of these programs will work on your current iPhone as well, as long as you upgrade your software to the 2.0 OS. Though 3G will make the wireless download of these new programs far faster. And the automatic update notification is pretty cool too, letting you know the moment your existing new program is outdate and you now have the opportunity to upgrade.
App store can be a disruptive force in software distribution. Apple is opening a new channel which combines different emerging computing models. It has elements of SaaS, Cloud computing, mobile interface and tight desktop integration. This can be bigger than iTunes.

Rumor watch: $49.99 iPhone with 3 year iTunes contract

Filed under: iphone — Tags: , , , — admin @ 12:00 pm

It's getting louder and louder now. Drumbeats are on.

I am hearing from  commentators that Apple will subsidize iPhone with long term iTunes music subscription contract.

Let's see if we are going to see Apple make history today! Platform war is on.

iTunes has a big role to play in education vertical and we will be watching for any bombshells there.
