No Instinct App store?

No Instinct App store?

So we won't have our own Instinct App store similar to the IPhone App store. We'll just have that lame o Sprint Digital Lounge? Heres what that Nathan guy said on the Sprint Development site: nathan_sprint_adp * Rank : Star Contributor * Posts:273 Overall Rating:27 Subject: re: Important News on Releases/Upcoming Software Date: 2008-10-07 at 02:26 PM CDT Sorry, don't know what Instinct App store you are referring to - there are no plans to build an Instinct specific software store. All premium apps available for the Instinct are available through the Sprint digital lounge available on the Sprint.com website. Thanks Sprint ADP

Yeah, I think when they are available you can goto your digital lounge or even goto the shop icon on your phone. Tomorrow's the big announcement of the apps btw!

I always assumed that when the APPs were available they would be found at the Digital Lounge. It is sprints Digital Store.

You know, a killer app for the Instinct would be a GUI interface to the Digital Lounge.  :-)

Not a bad idea, but I think it would have to be done by sprint because of the access to account info and stuff.

In four months this phone will be a year old and this wonerous app store is still not in soght

Re: No Instinct App store?

How many times does Sprint have to say they are not developing an Instinct specific app store before it registers? Any app will go to the digital lounge and rightfully so, sprint already has a store.

Re: No Instinct App store?

Well, in order for Sprint to stay competitive and stop losing millions of customers each quarter, they are going to have to start getting innovative, and part of that means opening up a REAL app store for their phones, especially for the Instinct. Everyone knows that the Digital Lounge sux at best, and is simply a sorry excuse for an app store. If we, the paying customers, stop putting the pressure on Sprint, they'll never open a up legitimate app store. By complaining, we got them to fix the browser, the phone crashing, and a number of other bugs, so we'll do the same for an app store until we get what we want. Sprint can keep telling us "no" in regards to opening up a good app store, but that shoudn't prevent us from pushing for this to happen in the future.

Hardware and software issues with Instinct were going to get fixed anyway, thing is, even after its "fixed" you still complain. The lounge only needs more applications to make it competitive.

Re: No Instinct App store?

So you must work closely with the development team to know this, right? You know, you should really start your own arrogant know-it-all section somewhere else and leave our forums alone.

The phone wasn't designed to recieve over the air updates for nothing.

Re: No Instinct App store?

when you look back at the FAILED developers contest, you learned two things...This phone isn't easy or cheap to develop for, and 1000 threads about it won't change a thing...
