Update: I just received an email from support, the reports will show up in my account tomorrow at 6:00 AM. [9/23/2008 3:21 PM ET]

I typically will not write about anything non-technical but I will make an exception this time. Why-oh-why is it like pulling teeth when dealing with the iPhone App Developer Program support. I get the feeling that when I call and wait my turn in the phone queue, all I am getting to talk to is a receptionist who is going to “escalate the matter”. When asked how long it will take to get a response back, I am told that it will take a week to a week and a half. This is a VERY simple matter. All I want to know is how many downloads my app has had. Shouldn’t this automatically, programmatically for that matter, be turned on in the iTunesConnect portal by default when an app goes live? If that was the case, I could be writing a blog post about how awesome the developer program is, but no, I am stuck here writing in frustration.

Having dealt with Apple support for a Macbook Pro a couple of times, the iPhone Developer support seems like a bunch of amateurs who have no idea what’s going on. As an AAPL share holder, I am glad that the general public does not have to deal with the iPhone Developer support, as it would turn people away in droves.

If anyone with power to help in this situation is reading this post please feel free to contact me at rswarthout [at] gmail [dot] com.

For those of you with an iPhone and looking for a new game to play you might consider checking out Monkey Slap. This is my first stab at making an iPhone application achat cialis quebec. It has been a very fun and interesting process. You will have to let me know what you think.

After more than a month of development and learning how to code in Objective-C and Cocoa I finished up my first app. My first app is titled “Monkey Slap” and I hope it will be available very soon in the App Store. Below I have copied in the description of the game. This application will be sold for $1.99.

You’re deep in the jungle when suddenly a silly little monkey starts laughing at you. Better show him who’s boss and slap that monkey! Similar to the classic arcade game “Whack A Mole” this game is both funny and easy to play. Exciting features test your speed and coordination and you try to slap every monkey you see. Extra points if you catch him while he is stealing bananas. Guaranteed to be more fun than a… barrel full of monkeys.


  • Multi-touch game play
  • Endless Levels
  • 3 independent difficulty settings
  • Sound Control
  • Top Score Board

Here are a few screen shots of what this will look like:
