Perception & Naming

By Michael Mulvey on September 10, 2012 12:14 AM

Quick thought: Does the fact that we call programs on mobile devices 'apps' have any correlation to how cheap people become when debating buying one for $2.99?

By truncating the word application, I wonder if it loses some of its weight and professionalism. It's like the difference between taxi and limousine.

People have no idea what goes into some of their favorite and best built 'apps'. The testing, the QA, the underlying databases and coding.

No idea at all.

Brian S Hall tells us Blackberry ($RIMM) is worth less than the Apple App Store. Just the App Store.

Not iPhone.

Not iPad.

Not Mac.

Not iTunes.

Just the App Store.
