How long will the Appstore last?

  1. 3+ years, plus the cycle will restart everytime a new product launches.

  4. It will continue to be updated, but after 1-2 years the pace will be extremely slow.

    What do you think? Do you think it will go on for years to come? Or do you think that the Appstore is a fad that will fade?

    as long as there is money to be made, devs will continue to write apps and push updates.

    so, I think for a long time to come.

    i have to agree with arn, developers wont stop making apps until people no longer buy them... and i have a feeling that probably wont ever happen, even if apple does retire the iPhone one day im sure their next device will be capable of using the app store

    Haha sorry to bump this thread but it was on the last page and I thought the question was kinda funny considering how many apps we now have.

    the next whiskey bar
    actually about 1 and a half years?

    the iPad's only just been introduced and runs apps from the app store. I think it'll go on for a long while

    even with the faults of the appstore. for me its the best way to get applications. i buy way more software cause of the appstore.

    it aint going anywhere anytime soon.. will just evolve.. but has proven to be a valid way to distribute software to the masses who may not buy much.
