Apple App Store bubble

Posted on: February 25, 2009

I’m listening to a podcast and they’re talking about how the video game industry crashed in 1984 and it sounds scarily similar to the App Store: developers saw it as a gold mine and thought they could just throw together any crappy thing and people would buy it. The industry crashed because there were just too many crappy games. Plus there’s no try before you buy.

But I guess there were still survivors from the crash, like Nintendo. Apple and Nintendo have often been compared with their innovative approach, so if anyone survives the mobile app market it would be Apple. Plus there are very few companies that have based their entire business plan on developing mobile applications.
