Re: How's business since 2.0 deployed?

As a JAVA only dev when BB10 arrives 0% of my apps will run on it.  Either RIM give us a head start with pre-release bb10 sdk or give us java dev tools to port some of java apps over to bb10.

 

I just hate to rewrite all the java apps in bb10.

@falo, Devs don't buy apps, they write apps :Tt2:

@PlayDev, If I was you, I would even post my games as free if the sales goes down. PlayBook is not so important, the battle is for the future BB10. Now is the time to set foot on AppWorld and gain territory (I mean rating and good placement). I remember AppWorld 2 years ago, it was almost hostile place for early adopters. But once it exploded in Autumn 2010, being there early was worth the hassle.

I guess that revokes my developer credentials then Smiley Wink  Can we get an "App Purchaser" button for the forum instead?  Cheers for the stats link btw.

Re: How's business since 2.0 deployed?

In general, I see sales down about 25-30%, but the ratio between Canada vs. US sales has changed from 3:1 to 2:1.
