App Store Chaos

I have written before about the piles of usless programs piling up quickly in the Apple App Store. There are some great and creative ones too but increasingly they are hidden beneath the iBeer detritus.

There are iTunes issues, (lack of good search/sorting capability), that compound the problem. But the marketplace is chaos by design.

Apple designed the App Store as a unique and ONLY outlet for iPhone/Touch applications. The more Apple restricts programs for sale there the better the argument for a developer restraint of trade lawsuit.

I could be wrong but what the evidence suggests is that Whatever review their is for the programs submitted is just to make sure the program is not malicious and does not break contractual agreements with carriers.

What do you think?
