Under The Microscope

Open Questions for The App Store

Over on the Inside iPhone blog, I’ve got a post on the iPhone App Store, detailing some of the questions and concerns we have for it.

As I’ve previously indicated, I firmly believe the App Store should not be the exclusive means of getting software onto the iPhone. But currently, it is, and as such developers will have their own requirements for it.

    Just how does one “download” speakers through the internet? While I’ve only been doing this computer stuff for 30 years I am often baffled at some sites for being , what I consider, quite vague. I’m sorry I can’t keep up with you!
    I have a G5, Airp[ort Express, Apple TV BUT I want to listen to I-tune and Shoutcast out on the patio with wireless speakers….which you say you can download through the internet??
    Just where have I gone wrong here?

    Sameera: As we’ve noted elsewhere, unfortunately, Airfoil for the iPhone simply isn’t possible with Apple’s current restrictions.

    Pete: Airfoil Speakers is a software application. You run it on another Mac, PC or Linux machine, and Airfoil can then send audio from one machine to another.

    If you have further questions, you can contact us directly, right through our support form. Commenting on an unrelated post definitely isn’t the best way to get a response. 8)
