Full Analysis of iPhone Economics -

Full Analysis of iPhone Economics -
I promised to return with the full analysis of the iPhone App Store economics analysis, from every angle, with all data I have managed to find. This blog intends to paint the most accurate picture of the specifically Apple related iPhone App Store market economics - and lessons from here should apply to most other smartphone app stores as well. The one final piece of the puzzle that had been missing, that we desperately needed to ge the full, honest picture, was the Apple official revenue number, which we finally got a few days ago, at $1.43B total revenues generated over 2 years, and thus $1B paid to developer. Now we can do the full analysis. But first a few general comments. There is nothing inherently wrong with making a smartphone app. Similarly there are cases where an app would be ridiculous. So lets start with the 'big picture' numbers and those that come directly from Apple and/or are calculated directly from those. But the picture starts out bleak. Now the heartbreaking news.

Les réseaux sociaux dans les résultats des moteurs La recherche temps réel La recherche en temps réel de Google Premier constat : Google et Bing ont intégré des options permettant de faire des requêtes dans ce que Google appelle le temps réel et Bing le social.

Panorama des médias sociaux Aviez-vous remarqué que le terme « web 2.0 » n’est plus à la mode ? Il faut dire qu’à force de nous survendre du « 2.0 » à toutes les occasions, le concept fini par lasser. Maintenant, on parle de médias sociaux. De ce morcellement sont nés le social shopping, l’entreprise 2.0, les médias sociaux et bien d’autres encore. Publions, partageons, sociabilisons ! Dans « médias sociaux » il y a « média« , ce qui veut dire que les médias sociaux sont des supports numériques à une prise de parole ou une publication. Dans « médias sociaux » il y a « social« , ce qui implique des échanges (fichiers, goûts, points de vus…) mais aussi des interactions sociales (structuration de groupes d’individus en réseaux, acquisition de notoriété, influence…). Vous l’aurez compris, les médias sociaux sont donc des outils et services permettant à des individus de d’exprimer (et donc d’exister) en ligne dans le but de rencontrer / partager (et plus si affinités). Une infinité d’outils et de services Ouf !
