I've been using Sportacular since they updated for the iPhone 5. I really like it a lot, but I would really like for ESPN to update ScoreCenter. At least ESPN finally updated WatchESPN today.

The ESPN one was crazy but luckily the Watch ESPN update came out today. I can't believe it took them this long.

I was appalled at the response of one person who basically went ballistic on me telling me I was "polluting" the dock discussion. (A moderator eventually cleaned up the mess but not before making me think twice about the nature of fanboys.)

There are so many intangibles that make up a relationship between a brand and end-users. SJ seemed to have an innate understanding of that fact and making, for the most part, brilliant decisions to strengthen that relationship. And now...barely a year after his passing and the ship that is Apple seems to be struggling in ways it has never struggled before...at least publicly.

The Forstall departure, despite all the hoorays over the death of skeuomorphism is a helluva lot more troubling than not if you actually look at his contributions. Yeah Siri and Maps were crash and burns and yeah, maybe it was time for a change. That doesn't change the fact that Mr. Cook seems to be having a very tough time doing what SJ made look easy.

Anyway, enough from me. I don't think the end is near but to paraphrase Yogi Berra, the future sure ain't what it used to be.
2nd kudos from me, interesting & relevant argument made here.

I'm also quite surprised important & essential apps like the official YouTube app, which was released in August & haven't seen a single update since, have not been updated. I'm not certain if Apple rushes their developers to update for the 4" display, but if they do, that's great.

Just like you, I can't say I'm particularly optimistic about the road Apple is currently trekking. Apple law suits are now in abundance, recent Forstall departure has raised hopes exponentially for the next revision of iOS, & the Apple Maps fiasco has reached a point of no return & hopelessness.

Stand back & watch the show, guys. The next few years is paramount for the development of this famous (probably infamous too) company, every single step will determine & play a role in the direction they will move. Whether its moving forwards or a regression, I can only wish them the best.

Yet massive profits prove nothing other than the world class marketing machine that is Apple Inc. Plenty of people are ruining their health eating fried fast food, yet the sales volume is staggering.

At the end of the day, there's never been so many users, enthusiasts, and regular customers that are now complaining & questioning Apple.

The highly visible legal assaults launched by Apple, the bully tactics, the burning desire to have competitive products banned, instead of just competing in the open market is very revealing.

Apple has changed in a way that is not necessarily in their best long term interest. Time will tell...
Apple products are still superior but maybe not by such a wide margin. Apple cares about the details with their products: accurate, fast touch response, a smooth UI, easy to backup your data and update software, etc. No other company has their attention to detail.

Exclamation Hm...

Why not come up with a checklist of what's out?

In my collection:
-Youtube app is updated.
-Netflix video streaming app is updated.
-Dish network app is updated.
-Japanese NHK TV app is updated.
-Air Video server is updated.
-Drama Fever standalone app is updated.
-Crunchyroll standalone app is updated.
-Apple Trailers app is updated.

Some of my bike GPS applications such as Roadbike Pro, Strava Cycling or Polar Beat are updated so it uses more of the screen to give you more data.

Some apps such as foursquare have been updated and don't really benefit from the larger real estate, they just gave it a more fancy display.

More will come with time.
