    That's interesting.

    We are checking with the registry what can be done here. The wheels at Google registry grind slowly but we'll work on them.

    Direct registration of verified apps, without requiring to go through an app store, seems like a logical innovation to me, beyond the existing progress in making pseudo-apps via mobile-friendly sites.

    I couldn't agree more with that statement. I feel things are really going in that direction. For that reason I am hot on the .app's....

    It is coming up as "Reserved".

    Sometimes registrars can work with the registries to buy Reserved domains. If you have material budget, happy to advise. Otherwise you are waiting for them to open those reserved names up.

    Thanks!
    So the question naturally moves to, have all the drops moved to "reserved" status? Are there any that were dropped and caught?

    From what I am gathering is all the drops have been reserved for the time being and this is unprecedented.

    The word from Bruno Panara at Google Registry on June 25 was that they were a few weeks from figuring out what they were going to do. @Sufyan Alani requested an update. Hope to have an update on Monday, though Bruno sometimes replies on weekends.

    @Sufyan Alani will have an update soon on .APP. We have them now at Epik.com as direct accredited registrar but are working on the mega-promo and on getting the reserved domains back on the market.

    There are some nice names out there now, but they are expensive on the renewals. I noticed that these are available:

    tap.app - $958.80 renewal
    newspaper.app - $238.80 renewal

    I'll let you make your own judgement as to whether they're nice or not :bag:

    i'm in the process of setting up a service for consensus.app, a blockchain based voting/polling app that will be fully customizable per needs of the organization/cleint.

    check out the demo here -> 207.148.7.27/VoteApp

    (if anybody has a tip on how point demo.consensus.app to the above ip, would be much appreciated - using gandi and cloudflare)

    Since you asked, and obviously this is only my opinion, you know what they say about opinions.

    I feel two word NewG's are a tough sale, so numberone.app, I would drop.The cheapest and smartness ones are a possible drop. The keeps are the rest.....imo

    Good luck!

    I feel Scrapbook has the most potential. The others are decent. As far as pricing, you need to consider your financial situation and your long term goals. Do you want to hit singles? Wait for home runs, etc?

    If those were mine, I would be happy with singles on all of them except Scrapbook. I would hold out for a home run with Scrapbook.........again, just my opinion and in no way does this constitute investment advice.:xf.smile:

    scrapbook.app ... make me think why you’d rate it high enough vs others. Just your suggestion on how much should these be worth it’d help me asses value market wise

    Scrapbook is an easy spell and, most importantly, the definition is congruent with the .app extension. There is lots of potential end users.

    As far as worth, I don't particularly like to get into exact figures because we all have different financial factors. Example being that a "single" could be a years salary in one region and a "home run" could be a month of income in another region.

    Scrapbook has the potential to be on the higher end of most .app sales...imo

    I really like it! Congrats!

    A year and a bit on from registration. I'd love to get your thoughts on takeout////app.

    I thought it was a steal with no premium reg fee. Now I'm not so sure it was worth buying at all. No interest from anybody.

    @Roger Pinto I really like partnership.app but probably for the wrong reasons. It's a really nice "business" word, but perhaps it doesn't match with the .app extension unlike scrapbook.

    @MadAboutDomains yeah but it all depends on how the end user who might own it for relevant use. A domain that caught my eye while random surfing was all.online .. quite catchy and evokes a thought as to what owner might be holding - pot of gold or anything else ?

    *edit : random
    Thanks @Bob Hawkes for pointing it out 🙂

    Indeed the characters ‘s & d’ sits so close to each other on the keyboard that such mushups happens 🤣 Thanks for that stitch in time.

    Yeah all.online seems quite memorable and it did make me think a lot around it ...
