Branded mobile apps – that is apps from companies like Starbucks, eBay or Nike – are now a standard fixture in mobile app stores, but a new survey that user interface design and app development agencyEffectiveUI commissioned from Harris Interactive found that 38% of users today are not satisfied with these branded apps. That alone would be bad, but these users are also quite vocal about their experiences and 69% of respondents said that a bad experience with a branded mobile app resulted in a negative perception of the brand as a whole.

Well, I’m here at apple’s wwdc. Checked in yesterday and got my free jacket! Stayed on Tulsa time so I could get up at 4:30 and be on the line by 5. The line was already wrapping around the building! Oh, no! Everyone is already here I’m thinking but NOOOO since I’ve been here the line has wrapped around another corner (at least) and people are still coming at a steady pace. This is crazy!
