App Store changes to benefit mobile recyclers?
10 September 2010 — 7:30 PM
People who recycle a mobile phone and switch to one of Apple's revolutionary devices may be in line to benefit from changes the company is making to its App Store.
The technology manufacturer has confirmed it is to alter the restrictions it places on the development of new apps, meaning those who produce the features should enjoy more flexibility.
If this translates into a rise in quality of the apps on offer, owning an Apple device on which to enjoy them may be highly desirable.
In a statement, the firm also suggested it will publish the criteria on which it rates new apps, potentially helping developers to see their product accepted and in widespread use.
But those without an Apple handset will be aware the App Store is only of use to those with a model such as an iPhone, iPod touch or iPad.
The innovative provider of mobile devices recently released iTunes 10 with Ping, allowing friends to discuss their favourite downloads and rate files.
