AdMob Is Working On An iPhone App Exchange To Swap Ads For Traffic

Posted: Updated:
Here's my hypothesis why: I have got a pretty good idea that Apple is going to be releasing more iPod touch/iPhone platform devices. The software developed by the networking team runs on a broad spectrum of platforms, including Macs and Windows, and from servers down to a growing number of embedded devices including iPhone. Apple has a big lead in touch technology and probably needs to innovate in other ways rather that release a similar type of product to a mature market. 1

With more than 20,000 apps available for the iPhone, standing out from the crowd is becoming harder and harder for app developers. 5

The existing average price point of applications for the iPhone, which is trending even further downward, makes it impossible for big studios to devote a lot of time and energy to the development of big budget titles. Considering the cost of the average DS or PSP new release, iPhone users would probably still be getting a better deal than most. 3

And since SXSWi is ground zero for cutting edge social media and the people who are often the earliest adopters of such technology, a series of companies have used the conference as the launching pad for their own apps for Apple's ubiquitous smartphone. 4
