I’ve been cyber-bullied by coworkers into writing a blog post. I’ll admit, I’m one of the marketers prime for the blog bribery that Kipp Bodnar speaks about in his recent blog post on convincing coworkers to blog. It’s not that I’m anti-blogging, it’s just that like the TI-82 did to my memory of equations, Twitter has ruined my ability to write in quips longer than 140 characters.
But it’s never too late to get it back (at least that’s what my co-workers told me). So to ease myself back into the process, I’ve decided to summarize a few testing-related stories I recently saw in the news. Here goes….
Mobile App Reviews
Read Write Web recently posted a nice list of mobile app recommendation sites that developers can use to market and sell their apps. While no single site has the niche-market share for apps that TripAdvisor does for hotel reviews, they’re certainly battling it out quickly. With the Apple Store having over 250,000 apps available to 100MM people, and a staggering 5B app downloads (yes, that’s billion) it’s certainly going to be a race to become the app review site – and one that developers should certainly utilize to their advantage.
