TouchArchade expansion pack ?

I was wondering if TA has any plans to expand to include other app reviews , aside from just games ?

Seeing how big TA is and seeing how app developer frequent TA it would seem like a perfect match , no?

There is a reason why it's called TouchArcade.

Personally, I wouldn't come here anymore, the reason I come to toucharcade is because I love gaming and I don't care about utility apps or anything

There's an app blog over on http://appshopper.com/blog/ and an iPhone blog over at http://www.macrumors.com/iphone/ which I guess are technically under the same blog "network" if you'd even call it that. Both run by good people!

Yes good point you raise , that some are here for games alone , and TA is meeting that need .

But if one was only interested in games would in not simply be a matter of sticking to the the game forums and staying away from the other forums pertaining to other apps ?

But yes it would effect the forums " new post " feature .

That's what we do now, since there is an OS Apps forum. I think it's inactivity is a good enough clue as to how few people really want more non-gaming news.

we don't have any real plans to incorporate any significant amount of app reviews here.

I just don't think it's interesting enough for the general audience. We might mention some game-related apps from time to time, but not otherwise.

AppShopper is sort of expanding that a bit, and covering apps in a limited fashion.
