    iPhone market size 

    I’m not sure who’s pulling numbers out of their hind quarters, but someone is terribly off, these estimates seem radically different.

      Your presentation on
      http://www.slideshare.net/steve918/in-app-purchase
      is very nice!
      There is only one thing I’m missing:
      the third alternative using InAppPurchase!
      1. the self contained model unlocks existing features/data
      2. the downloadable content model uses additional server-side logic and application
      for verifying the transfer
      3. the third alternative with the most usefulness would be:
      — InAppPurcase like the self contained model, and
      — the iPhone App downloads additional content
      symply from an FTP-server and uses this in the future
      (without serverside logic!)

      Why did you not described this third alternative of using InAppPurchase?

        The reason why this isn’t as useful as number 2 is you can’t protect your downloadable data or verify the purchase receipt on a backchannel with Apple. Although your method is easier to implement it’s incomplete imho.

      I’ll have to trust the experts here, but it doesn’t seem to me a likely prospect for any theory. ,
