Interesting statistics for iOS app developers: success of iOS apps is a very vicious thing. Nearly 400,000 of about 650,000 mobile applications in the App Store can be considered as a “zombie”: they do exist, but are dead because almost no one knows about them. This is the conclusion made by the researchers of Adeven analyst firm. Below is the statistics and some App Store tips to promote the app.

After Apple released its first iOS it was claimed to be protected from viruses. But there are a lot of complaints from users about virus on iPhone and it is true.

As you may think this antivirus software is good not only for iPhone but for other iOS gadgets as iPad and iPod Touch. The advantage of Apple company has always been that their OS could not detect the virus. But as it became known today that Apple iPhone can be infected just like other platforms, such as on Windows.

Steve Jobs Leaked iPhone Legend

This Steve Jobs and the leaked iPhone (the first one) story was spread all around the web for the last 24 hours with the insane speed. It looks more like a fairy-tale than a truth, however, let’s get acquainted with it as it is pretty interesting. The policy of protecting confidential information by Apple is a strong dam, restraining the flow of sensitive data about the devices being developed. Trying to follow it, the company has taken the most unusual measures. For example, confiscates all the gadgets from journalists who write about the prototype or forces testers of unreleased gadgets to send a special pin code every 12 hours and sends the future devices to their partners in the special sealed boxes. Against this backdrop, the story of the former Apple’s employee that happened with Steve Jobs just before presentation of the first iPhone, looks very unusual.

This incident occurred just before Macworld exhibition in 2007. A team of engineers that developed the final version of the iPhone, could not establish its Wi-Fi performance. To quickly fix this annoying problem, Steve Jobs has invited all the developers to his own home. His home possess thick walls that’s why they could safely test the wireless data transfer.

When the employees finally got to the head of his house, they found him in the car. He sat there and listened to music, setting the radio volume to maximum. Engineers have noticed, Steve turned off the music and went with them into the house. In the midst of their work to solve Wi-Fi problems someone rang the doorbell, frightening the head of Apple and his team. Steve Jobs quickly realized what was happening and went to the door.

There he waited for a FedEx employee, which brought him a parcel. Steve was supposed to meet him personally, as his signature was required for delivery. Steve Jobs meet a courier with the first iPhone in his hands, which then no one has yet seen, hid it behind his back and quietly signed the necessary papers. The happiest (and inconsiderate!) courier in the world bowed and went about his business.

A former Apple employee, who told this story to Business Insider said that words can not describe shock that he experienced in 2007 in Steve Job’s home:

You must understand that we then transported to the home of Steve iPhones in special protective boxes from the company Pelikan, who closed with a key. Phone, which would never have left the campus of Apple, was just hidden behind his back. It was the first time someone was so close to the clues secret project on which the company operates. If the guy from FedEx would simply bowed his head, he would see the first iPhone before its presentation.

How do you like this fable? Is it true or what?


iPhone Fingerprint Authentication is Close

Apple plans to create  a system to enable iPhone fingerprint authentication and implement its own electronic wallet technology by purchasing AuthenTec, a leading provider of security solutions and sensor control, says RBC Capital Markets analyst Amit Daryanani.

iPhone and iPad developer announced about AuthenTec purchase for $ 356 million last week. Experts believe that the transaction is dictated by the Cupertino’s desire to acquire fingerprint technology and integrate it into mobile products on iOS 6 release.. At the same time buying the company will have minimal impact on the Apple’s budget, which has over $ 100 billion of available funds in stock.


p0sixninja Leaves Chronic Dev Team

Joshua «p0sixninja» Hill, well-known hacker in the jailbreak clique announced on Twitter about his resignation from the Chronic Dev Team. For many years he was the leader of the p0sixninja hacker group, which produces tools for jailbreaking the iOS.

The reason why the developer decided to leave the Chronic Dev Team, is not clear. In May this year p0sixninja attended to a Hack In The Box (HITB) computer security conference with the group of other hackers, during which he presented Absinthe – untethered exploit for iOS 5.1.1 jailbreak on the latest  iPhone and iPad models.
