AppFund promises financial support for iPad development

CNET and E! Online co-founder Kevin Wendle announced a partnership with MusicNation and Original Signal co-founder Daniel Klaus to form AppFund, a new firm designed to help entrepreneurs create and launch applications for Apple's forthcoming iPad and other tablet devices. AppFund investments will range from $5000 to $500,000, according to the complexity of each application and its commercial potential--each proposal also will evaluate an app's value as a utility in the everyday lives of consumers, enterprise users and small businesses, as well as its scalability and viral marketing potential. AppFund is currently accepting written proposals.
