    Survey: 70% of all iPhone Apps May be Free

    According to a survey of developers conducted this week at Apple's
    World Wide Developer Conference, and highlighted over at Apple
    Insider, many of the potential applications being developed for the
    iPhone will have an average cost of $3.00 or under -- and many others
    may be completely free. The survey, conducted by Piper Jaffray analyst
    Gene Munster right after the Steve Jobs Keynote on Monday, revealed
    some other interesting information besides potential application
    pricing.

    The survey also found that 50% of the developers plan on building
    applications only for the iPhone while the other 50% were going to
    make application for the iPhone, the iPod Touch, and for Macs as well.
    In addition, Munster found that many developers were also authoring
    what he called "Enterprise apps" as well as entertainment apps,
    location-based apps which take advantage of the iPhone's GPS
    capabilities and video games.

    According to Munster: "We see this as a positive indicator of the
    potential for Enterprise adoption of the iPhone. We found the average
    cost of iPhone apps on the App Store to be $2.29, with 71% being
    free." So, if you love the iPhone or iPod Touch and plan on putting
    lots of applications on them, if the survey proves correct, this is
    good news for you.

    In the din of announcements from WWDC on Monday, one of the
    underreported features for iPhone apps is "ad hoc" app distribution:
    registering up to 100 iPhones, and distributing your apps yourself.
    Macworld's John Welch has a good overview of Ad Hoc and enterprise
    distribution, and what it means for IT departments. "[H]aving your
    applications distributed from your own servers on your own network
    just makes sense," he writes. "It makes security issues simpler, saves
    on external bandwidth usage, and simplifies the process of adding,
    updating, and removing applications."

    Webmonkey, on the other hand, completely missed this part of the
    keynote, writing a review of the App Store that omits the ad hoc
    distribution plan and calls the App Store's exclusivity "yuck." Plus,
    it neglects to mention the still-thriving jailbreak community, and the
    legions of Installer.app users.

    Ad hoc distribution means great things for proprietary apps for teams,
    classrooms, and large organizations.

    Wow...Sales forecasts for iPhone must be worse than expected! Apple never
    gives anything away for free!...well, never anything of value....(c;

    Look for the Freeware or OPEN SOURCE section at your local Apple store
    iStore websites. See all the FREEWARE?

    There'd only be one reason to give it away....sales needs a big boost.
