Eleven iPhone games I won't delete (TUAW.com)

Sep 9th 2009 11:37AM Unfortunately prices can change at any moment, and Apple doesn't provide a simple way to simply embed the dynamic price. Since we don't have an army of editors going back months to scan every price change and correlate it with current store prices, we include an app store link to every live app on the store so you can check the actual price at the time the app is still live in the store.

Sorry. I hear ya, and we've got some ideas.

Sep 8th 2009 11:44PM I spoke to Illusion Labs and they said there was a minor issue with the version of Sway that was on the store, so until the update is pushed out, the app is unavailable.

Fourteen ways to enjoy TUAW (TUAW.com)

Sep 3rd 2009 12:18PM So you'd rather TUAW look like Google.com?

The point here is that we have a number of ways for people to interact and/or view what comes out of our collective consciousness.

Feel free to use a Greasemonkey script to style the page according to your taste :)

Sep 3rd 2009 12:10PM Sadly TUAW does not code nor control the comment system. It's the same system from TMZ to Engadget to Fanhouse to Gadling to Autoblog to Cinematical to TV Squad to Lemondrop to ParentDish to Green Daily to DailyFinance... and so on. Hundreds of AOL sites use the same comment system

And we hear the same comment issues everyone else does, we really do.

And yes, I would love all the wonderful things you are all suggesting. Every. Time. We. Post. Anything.

But all I can tell you is that we're working on it, and please be patient. This is not a 2-line code change.

Aug 28th 2009 11:55AM Yes, but each site may have different functional requirements. The needs of an Autoblog or Gadling reader may vary from those of an Engadget or TUAW reader, right?

Aug 28th 2009 8:23AM As I've described elsewhere, the i.tuaw decision was mine because the full site had been bad about crashing Safari. We made it for reasons I've described elsewhere, but we're working to provide a choice between full and optimized, just hang tight. It isn't as easy as you might think deploying that...

As to this being app clutter, I can assure you that we at TUAW are very concerned about useless apps junking up the store. The TUAW app provides some features you CANNOT get from the site.

Chief among them:
- Offline access to articles
- Saving articles in a convenient place
- Viewing galleries full-screen
- Facebook connect integration

Later we'll add some things like push notifications. Hang tight, lots of good stuff to come.

Aug 28th 2009 8:20AM Unfortunately we've had technical issues getting a choice (mobile vs. full) to stick. So instead of an uneven, broken experience (or one that crashes your iPhone, which the full site was doing), we chose to automatically send to i.tuaw. While I realize some don't like this, overall it provides a better experience for everyone.

But I hear ya, and we're working on it. Our resources are not infinite, so we must beg patience in the interim.

Aug 28th 2009 8:17AM It will, yes. See my response earlier, but there were experience issues with comments so we chose to leave them out for now. You can comment by viewing the full post within the app, however.

Aug 28th 2009 8:16AM Unfortunately the comments aren't something TUAW controls, nor the team who built the iPhone app, but we are aware of the issues and we're working on it.

Trust me, we know how awful it is and it IS on the radar.

Aug 28th 2009 8:15AM There are several features you won't get from even the full site on an iPhone using Safari. Chief among them: offline access. If you get on a plane and go to tuaw.com, you won't get anything. With the app, you can fill it up with content in a couple of minutes, hop on the plane and have plenty to read.

There are other features that aren't found on the site, but this is the most requested one that I like to point out.

Believe me, the last thing WE want to do is clutter up the store. There are plenty of other sites with gussied up RSS readers, and we didn't want to go that route.

The app is free, so please try it before giving feedback so we can make it as constructive as possible.
