According to a new biography “Steve Jobs” authored by Walter Isaacson, Jobs was initially reluctant to the idea of creating an app-based environment for his products. He felt that his company might not be “up to the task.”
The biography has not been released in market but Huffington Post received an advance copy of the book and it reveals some very unique work ethics and thinking patterns which made Jobs build a huge name for Apple in the computer world.
According to Isaacson, Apple board member Art Levinson called Steve “half a dozen times to lobby for the potential of the apps,” but Jobs wasn’t ready to accept this idea initially. Isaacson writes, “partly because he felt his team did not have the bandwidth to figure out all the complexities that would be involved in policing third-party app developers.”
The 656-page book reveals a lot about Steve Jobs and his thinking behind creating new products. Above lines suggest that he had some troubles figuring out whether his company would be able to create an app store for the consumers as well as third-party developers but he finally conquered his doubt and as we all know, Apple is the first company to create to create a dedicated app store for its iPhone.
“Steve Jobs” would be launched on 24th of October and can be pre-ordered from Amazon using [this link].
