  • Killing the iTunes Affiliate

    I got an email from the iTunes Affiliate program at Apple today. It announced a great new website for ease of creating affiliate links. It closed out with the unapologetic statement that, by the way, the standard 7% earnings on app sales will be 2.5% starting May 1st.…

  • Blink: instant iTunes affiliate links on iOS

    Blink is an app for people who share links to iTunes and Mac App Store apps and use Apple's affiliate linking program. It lets you search across the App Store, the Mac App Store, the iTunes Store and the iBooks store, then generate an affiliate link with the result.

However, I sometimes do want to open iTunes or the MAS, which can be cumbersome --- especially in Chrome --- if the process is disabled.…

  • App Review: Tunesque

    Tunesque just popped up on my radar today. It's a free utility that searches the iTunes store, Spotlight-style. It runs in your menubar, and when you enter a query it returns instant, as-you-type results from all areas of the iTunes Store, App Store and Mac App Store. Hovering over an item displays item details (the way Lion Spotlight does). With light and dark themes and the ability to filter what results you see (and from what country's store they're from), it's about as configurable as you…
