Re: Too many iPad Apps, one for each URL, just too many

Opens the door for Microsoft to consolidate and make Apple look spread disorganized.

No it doesn't.

Microsoft isn't going to create a Netflix app that will let you stream Netflix content. Netflix will create their app for access to their content on Windows platforms and it will work the way that Netflix wants it. That is, their streaming app will be for streaming their content -- that's up to Netflix, not Apple, not Microsoft, etc. So, not a good example.

(As an aside, Netflix chose a long time ago to not let users manage their disc queues via mobile apps and there's nothing Apple or Microsoft can do about it -- they don't get to play there).

If you have have issues with a way an app works, you need to take it up with the developer of said app, not the platform provider.

Normally suggested upgrades are good for the OS. One would not "man up" and stay with old OS versions one likes, right?

I'm not sure what you're trying to say here and even less certain how it pertains to apps, who is responsible for them, and who actually controls them.

Who controls them? Apple has to approve them one by one.

Yes, Apple approves the apps but only against their developer guidelines (security, user interface design, etc).

More info:

App Review Guidelines
The App Review Guidelines provide rules and examples across a range of topics, including user interface design, functionality, content, and the use of specific technologies. Ensure your apps comply with these guidelines before submitting them for review.

From: »developer.apple.com/appstore/guidelines.html

Apple is NOT going to tell Netflix that they have to include queue management in their own Netflix app, for example.

Apple can have guidelines to streamline the process to make "are you in our netflix? try our app instead" so that the experience is fluid but also there is a need for a seamless auto guide to the right place, soon comedians are gonna make fun of the 1000 apps inside the ipad

Huh? What are you trying to say? Apple should control a 3rd party website offering you their app?

Do you feel guilty for not responding to all the junk mail in your mail box too? Should Apple control that too? Ya just have to learn to sort it and ignore it.

And... we'll just have to agree to disagree.
