Bugs bug you

10 09 2017

Inextricably linked with apps are small animals which most aggressive life forms are well-known from tropical areas and called BUGS. Today we have them also massively in temperate zones and they are distributed for free by Apple, Google, medium-sized companies, and individual enterprises via Apple’s App Store and Google’s Play Store.

A software bug is an error, flaw, failure or fault in an app that causes it to produce an incorrect or unexpected result, or to behave in unintended ways. This is a well-known problem, just replace “an app” by “a human being”.

Most of the updates we get from developers are about bugs and more or less accurately described in the App Store every time a new app version is released.

February 29th: If you consider to rent one of our great rental cars on February 29th, you should also consider to update to the latest version. Otherwise you might not find this day. :)

Oops … there was a bug in the bugfix so we fixed that bug. Sorry to bug you.

Tumblr

Bugs were found, bugs were fixed, the sun rose, a baby was born.

Took care of some bugs. They’ve been relocated to another app.

Outlook

This week is all about our inner beauty. And by that we mean newly clothed bugs and app improvements.

OneDrive

Plenty of bug fixes

since Oct 2016!

Hey, the first developer which app has more bugs than lines of code. Quality control? Yeah, but not in Bugmond.

Here are the *most boring descriptions* which tell us nothing and often include off-topic information or advertisement.

Facebook

Thanks for using Facebook! To make our app better for you, we bring updates to the App Store regularly. Every update of our Facebook app includes improvements for speed and reliability.

Microsoft

Thanks for using Word.

We regularly release updates to the app, which include great new features, as well as improvements for speed and reliability.

Did you know that with an Office 365 subscription, you can unlock the full power of Office across all of your devices? Find special offers in the app.

Hey Mr. Schiller, you shouldn’t allow that.

If you’re faced with bugs:

Please don’t use chemicals.

Your iPhone doesn’t like them.

Thanks for visiting my blog.

With  Watch Support.

Your movement order right on your wrist.

Only a few Germans join the army as professional soldiers. So Germany’s Ministry of Defense – conducted by Ursula “Rosie” von der Leyen who recently gave the pros a chewing out – started a new campaign with the app “Bundeswehr Challenge”.

It’s free, no subscription.

However the  Watch support is fake news.

Note

But wait. Look at the image.

Is that the new Apple Watch?

Ming-Chi Kuo didn’t tell us anything about a rounded shape of an upcoming iteration.

Thanks for 🏄 by.





The sad answer of a global player

The problem

Apple, a global player?

The sad answer

So if you are an honest guy buy or rent a house in the USA to get a billing address, contact a US bank to get a credit card accepted by Apple and then download the free app you were looking for from the US App Store.

This casts a poor light on an internationally acting company.

There are some workarounds to get a US Apple ID with faked personal data. Apple Support on Twitter clearly stated that this is against Apple’s ToS.

Don’t be evil.

With your non-US credit card you can pay everywhere in the world but not necessarily in Apple’s App Store.
