So what’s it like being one of the only Apples in an Android dominated world? Here’s a rundown of my observations:

With the success of independent game apps such as Flappy Bird, it was past time for Apple to highlight independent developers and small firms creating some terrific games. Now, iTunes has a button that takes you to a curated list of such developers, labeled Indie Game Showcase.

These days, to get me interested in your iPhone case, you gotta have a gimmick. I expect your case to offer protection, especially a raised lip that rises above the front glass. What else you got?

How about a kickstand to make it easy to view movies hands free? Maybe a way to redirect audio so instead of projecting sound down, it is projected towards me? And make sure you offer it in lots of colors.
