Apple (Nasdaq: AAPL) is the reference for application developers at the moment, as the App Store has reached critical mass. The natural inclination, then, is the subject of the iPhone â€“ and by extension, the IPAD.
â€œThe process of Appleâ€™s approval to enter the App Store can be a mystery with little feedback from them, and they do not make any guarantees about the time that the application will sit in queue for review,â€ Andy Gilbertson, Vice President marketing PerBlue, a developer of mobile games, said TechNewsWorld.
â€œWhen we launched the latest version of theâ€ Parallel Kingdom, which attempted to place long enough for Appleâ€™s approval process, but ends up being a guessing game and guess wrong, â€œhe said. â€œAs a result, our version of Android hit the market about two weeks before the Apple version is approved.â€
In a game like â€œParallel Kingdomâ€ â€“ in real time, the persistent world game â€“ two weeks is a lifetime.
â€œMany of our players, Apple has become very frustrated users of Android were getting such a huge advantage, and Iâ€™m sure that some players lost as a result,â€ Gilbertson concluded.
