MacVoices #13134: The MacJury Examines iOS Wants, Needs and Expectations Before WWDC
With WWDC just around the corner, The MacJury gets geeky in some places as it takes a look at the needs, wants and expectations for the next version of the iOS. Side loading of apps, sharing documents among apps and de-krufting iOS are part of the conversation. But it doesn’t stop there. Issues with the App Store process, some known, some new, come up, along with the challenges Apple faces with the popularity of WWDC, balancing power and sophistication and more. These topics are just part of the deliberations by the panel of John Brayton of Golden Hill Software, Matt Neuburg of TidBITS and host Chuck Joiner.
