In order to develop and release applications through the App Store or Mac App Store, devs must be subscribed to Apple’s Developer program, which costs $99 per year in the United States. In the United Kingdom, the price has long been set at £60 per annum, which, at current exchange, is slightly cheaper than Stateside developers. However, Apple has hiked the price for some nations within the European Union, and while Brits looking to join the party will now have to pony up £79, the yearly premium has risen in Germany from €80 to €99.

The fact that all iOS apps need to be approved by Apple in order to make their way into the App Store is both a blessing and a curse for the platform, but nobody can deny that it, most of the time at least, guarantees at least some sort of minimum design quality. It also means that developers often need to jump through hoops in order to get their hard work in front of those that they hope will download it.

Apple’s Developer site is often found to have left security holes within its infrastructure, and while the Cupertino outfit tries its utmost to ensure these flaws are few and far between, it’s the nature of the beast that every now and again, problems must be dealt with. Over the weekend, the Dev Center went offline for maintenance works, but while this is a frequent occurrence – particularly given that new iOS releases are almost always dished out on a Monday – the purpose this time around was to fix an issue that leaked private info of accounts all the way up to CEO Tim Cook.

Google Glass has been a revolutionary product in many ways, but with certain limitations. The high price point has yet kept it out of general consumer reach, but aside from that, another major contributor to this was the fact that developers didn’t really have a lot of options to expand the capabilities of the new hardware. In fact, all that they had access to was the standard Android SDK for testing and playing, which was far insufficient. Now, starting November 19, Google is hosting a hackathon where the Glassware Development Kit (GDK) will be made available to developers, as outlined in an invite sent out by Google for developers.

It’s no secret that while Microsoft’s Windows Phone platform has potential, it’s going to continue struggling against iOS and Android unless it manages to cajole a decent amount of developers into building apps for its fledgling platform. In order to try and strengthen the ecosystem, the Redmond company has just introduced an all-new dev tool by the name of Windows Phone App Studio. Currently in beta, it allows anybody to create a basic app for Windows Phone — regardless of experience in coding — and although its ease of use means it does carry its fair share of limitations, it could be the software maker’s secret weapon in finally thrusting Windows Phone from its relative obscurity.

After a lengthy eight day stretch of downtime, the Apple Dev Center is now finally back online, and so registered developers should be able to carry on about their business as usual. Late last week, it became apparent that systems were completely down, and after Apple stepped out and confirmed that it had been indeed subjected to a security breach, and that while all passwords and sensitive data were secure and out of reach of any hacker activity, it would be working on overhauling the system completely to prevent any such mishap from occurring in future. That initial memo was then followed by a server status update tool earlier this week, and now, just over a week after the Dev Center first went down, the main sections of the system are now back online.
