Planet of the Apps link →

I've had the trailer for Planet of the Apps sitting in my blog CMS, unpublished, since the day it was announced and released. Honestly, I'm just not sure how to respond. I guess, I need to understand that its audience is not designers and developers involved with the App Storeā„¢, but more so perhaps fans of reality television.

It does feel like it dehumanizes App developers and designers. It does feel like it makes a mockery of the process of creating an app. For me, I would have preferred a multi-part documentary style series similar to Indie Game: The Movie. But that's just like, my opinion man.

I don't think I'm alone in this opinion. Bonus.
