Microsoft just posted a funny video showing us how and why some applictaion are rejected from the Windows Marketplace for Mobile. Looks like Microsoft is taking shots at Apple’s abundance of useless apps in the iPhone Appstore in this video.

The Apple Store is down….let’s all get ready to enter the reality distortion field

So it begins….

ShopSavvy Android app coming to Windows Mobile (and iPhone)

The popular Android app, ShopSavyy,that let’s user scan a products barcode & then automatically searches for the best price is coming soon to the new Windows Marketplace for Mobile and iPhone appstore according to the developer’s blog:

Who will win? ShopSavvy for the iPhone should be in the market any time now. We began working on ShopSavvy for Windows Mobile when the iPhone version was substantially complete. There is a chance that the Windows Mobile version of ShopSavvy may be available BEFOREthe iPhone – ouch. Initially, ShopSavvy will be available in Microsoft’s mobile market for 6.5. Eventually, it will be available for 6.1 – 7.0 Windows Mobile devices.

It would be interesting to see which marketplace gets it first (remember that MS’s will only be launched on Oct 6th).

Here’s a video of the app running on an HTC G1:

TomTom finally available on the iPhone, is it a rip-off ?

TomTom has been officially released today on the AppStore for the following prices :

TomTom Iphoneprice

I may seem expensive and it is! But remember that it’s priced exactly the same on Windows Mobile phones. For example the European map pack cost €99 on the iPhone and €99 on Windows Mobile. Tomtom isn’t ripping off iPhone users, the price has always been the same on Windows Mobile. People just thought that because Apps on the AppStore are for the most part a lot cheaper than WinMo apps Tomtom was going to lower their prices.

Here’s a hands-on video :
