Amazon Android app store T&Cs leak

Amazon still aren't talking about the rumored Android app store they're tipped to be working on - which would sit alongside the official Android Market and offer users an alternative source for software - but the App Store Distribution Agreement participating developers would be expected to abide by has just dropped in the SlashGear inbox.  Among the T&Cs are confirmation on the developer royalties - "equal to the greater of (i) 70% of the purchase price or (ii) 20% of the List Price" - together with the rumored $99 annual fee and the fact that Amazon retains the right to modify your binaries and add in their own DRM.

Adobe retires Photoshop Touch, teases Rigel retouching app

Adobe retires Photoshop Touch, teases Rigel retouching app

With Adobe's eventual move to the cloud, it is no surprise that it wants to set anchor on mobile as well. After all, it's cloud storage and services would make exchanging files between mobile and desktop a breeze. Although it hasn't exactly made a splash about them, Adobe has quite the portfolio of mobile apps, which it is now showing off in its "mobile presence report card". Sadly, and almost ironically, it is also bidding goodbye to one of the stalwarts of that team: Photoshop Touch.

Amazon updates Fire Phone with Android 4.4 KitKat features

Amazon updates Fire Phone with Android 4.4 KitKat features

Amazon has been relatively quiet on its Fire Phone, which isn't really unexpected given the flak it received over the lackluster and disappointing gadget. Today, however, the retailer giant has deigned to shower some love on its first and so far only smartphone, with a rather hefty Fire OS 4.6.1 update. The changelog is quite long and the new features quite substantial. But somewhat amusingly, Amazon makes no mention of probably the biggest highlight of the release: upgrading the Fire Phone to Android 4.4 KitKat.

MCX’s new mobile payment app CurrentC aims to challenge Apple Pay

MCX’s new mobile payment app CurrentC aims to challenge Apple Pay

Merchant Customer Exchange (MCX) announced that it plans to launch CurrentC, its very own mobile payment app, sometime in the middle of this year. The new mobile payment platform is an attempt by a band of merchants to find a new way around the dreaded "swipe fees" associated with credit cards. Even retailers accepting Apple Pay have to succumb to swipe fees when the payment is tied to a credit of debit card. MCX will create a private pilot program to test the app in a mid-sized market. Later this year, the group plans to rollout CurrentC nationwide.

Apple Watch approaches like a Silver Surfer

Apple Watch approaches like a Silver Surfer

I don't have an Apple Watch around my wrist. Lets get that fact out of the way right this minute, since every other technology blogger in the universe seems - I emphasize SEEMS - to have one today on "launch day." The Apple Watch, like the iPhone and to a slightly lesser extend the iPad, is a herald of something greater. A new community, and a new way of computing. Just like the iPhone, Apple didn't make the first of its kind with the Apple Watch. But, judging SOLELY by the number of apps that've been released at launch for this one new product category, Apple has, once again, summoned the smartwatch.

Apple Watch Diary – Getting to know you

Apple Watch Diary – Getting to know you

iPhone was hotly-rumored before 2007; iPad a frequent topic of debate prior to 2010; but it’s hard to argue that Apple Watch, reaching consumers’ wrists today, is the most controversial of Apple’s recent line-up. Even before Tim Cook & Co. announced the wearable in September last year, the pros and cons of an iOS-powered companion for your iPhone were splitting party lines, and that debate hasn’t eased any in the months between then and release. Now, though, the waiting is over. The preorders are arriving. And Apple Watch needs to prove to us it’s worth a spot on our arm.
