Another week has passed in the world of iOS development, and this week I decided to re-open the ManiacDev.Com iPhone and iPad development forum. I have not officially launched the forums as of yet, but feel free to go there and post any iOS development related questions or resources. I occasionally get e-mails about where the original forum went (which is kind of surprising since it was almost a year and a half since it’s they’ve been gone!) so I decided to bring it back.. I had to take it off due to server issues, but that is no longer a problem.
One of the big topics in the past week has been about iAd revenue. While the revenues are still terrific some developers are starting to see smaller fill rates, and are looking for ways to supplement their revenue. Not surprisingly the most popular article this week was about a great tutorial on how to implement in-app purchases.
Here’s the most popular resources from the last week:
