Hi friends, an organization that is doing great work in the neighborhood of Redeemer Community Church and Dayspring Technologies has been nominated as a finalist in the‪ #‎GoogleImpactChallenge‬. They provide legal services without regard to ability to pay.

Would you take 30 seconds and vote for them? (no signup, no login) Thanks!

Both Oracle and Microsoft are suing to get Google to license their IP tech allegedly in Android, and working the smartphone OEMs to create pressure. Implications for Android growth?

Android's free nature is undoubtedly a big plus for OEMs selecting a platform on which to build. But it's also difficult to believe that OEMs could switch en masse to other platforms (e.g. WinPhone) given the developer adoption Android has achieved. Dev shops/teams just can't reasonably support too many platforms, and iOS and Android (plus HTML5) are already occupying a lot of the available "slots".

Food for thought.

Amazon Appstore. This indie Android dev says to avoid it. Definitely agree that the need to allow clear communication between customers and dev is critical to building and marketing a quality product.

Interesting new article from Nielsen: be clear in your mobile app initial screens and avoid alienating existing subscribers.
