The App Store Modifies It’s Ranking System

Apple has modified it’s ranking system for how applications are judged, based on criteria such as number of downloads. Some of the most popular apps include Facebook, Skype, and Pandora. Facebook moved from the 13th spot to the first, Skype jumped from 33rd to 11th, and Pandora went from the 22nd slot to the top ten. These applications were previously steady in their rankings, which leads many to assume that Apple has changed their ranking system.

AT&T Foundry Centers To Help Mobile App Developers

To all of you mobile developers out there with a great idea and who need access to enterprise-level labs and test centers, AT&T has the space for you. Today the first of three AT&T Foundry Innovation Centers was unveiled in Plano, Texas at the facilities of its partner Alcatel-Lucent, the host-sponsor of the center. A Palo Alto, California center, will open in May, partnering with Ericsson, followed by the the third to open in Tel Aviv, Israel in September, host-sponsored by Amdocs.

AT&T is comparing their idea acceptance process to speed-dating, with developers or teams allowed 15 minutes to present their ideas to a panel of AT&T executives, somewhat similar to what you might see on ABC’s Shark Tank. Execs heard 170 pitches in 2010 and expect to hear 400 this year. Those accepted can either work autonomously via a web portal, use call-in telephone collaboration and support, or have full on-site access to the super high-speed LTE-based networks, labs, and test centers.
