We’ll be starting to publish more content than ever across the AppStorm Network over the coming weeks, and we’re looking for a handful of talented writers to join the team. If you love apps as much as we do, you could make a fantastic addition to our ever-growing team of awesome writers!

The positions are regular work, and are paid – you earn between $40 and $150 per article depending upon the type of content you contribute. We’re looking for people with at least some writing experience, who feel they can match the type of quality we always strive for on AppStorm.

If you think you fit the bill, read on for our five-minute application form. We’d love to hear from you!

We’re kicking off a new weekly poll today, getting our readers opinion on a different topic each week. Hopefully this will give us all a chance to talk about a relevant issue, share our thoughts, and generally have a chat in the comments!

Today I’m asking something fairly general – how many people have you converted to the Mac platform? I’ve almost lost count of the number of people I’ve tried to haggle and persuade into buying a Mac – friends, family, colleagues – no-one is safe from my persistent nagging!

Do they all make the switch? Not everyone. But I reckon the number of loyal switchers I’ve managed to convert made the jump into double figures quite some time ago.

It’s just a shame that Apple don’t offer a commission every time you drag someone down to the local Apple Store…

Are you the same? Let us know – and do share your thoughts in the comments!

I’m pleased to announce that we’ve chosen the winners of our Alfred competition. Congratulations are in order to the following five people who will be receiving their Powerpack code shortly!

For four years the Envato Marketplaces have helped authors around the world earn an income selling their digital wares. Along the way we’ve grown from one marketplace to seven, with more on the way. We’ve gone from hundreds of members to hundreds of thousands. Items from our marketplaces have appeared in projects for companies big and small, all around the world. And most importantly of all, we’ve had thousands of authors cash out earnings, ranging from a bit of money for a big weekend to sums in the tens of thousands of dollars a month!

It’s been an amazing ride, and here at Envato along with our commitment to growing AppStorm, we are completely committed to making our marketplaces the best around. That’s why I’m very excited today to announce that as of the end of September we are rolling out some dramatically improved rates for all our exclusive authors! (more…)

Apple have come an incredibly long way over the past decade. From the release of the very first version of OS X, right through to the iPhone 4 and iPad in recent weeks, the change we’ve seen both in technology and Apple as a company has been remarkable.

We’re paying homage to this fascinating journey today with our very own infographic, highlighting the rise of Apple over the past ten years!

Envato, the company behind AppStorm, is turning four! To celebrate we’ve just released our Birthday Bundle for 2010 and it’s even more MASSIVE than last year!
