Apple’s App Store has recently lost its business case for most great iOS developers due to changes in its internal clockwork. The problems include the fact that paid apps have become almost invisible, that regular updates are penalized, and that new apps don’t get visibility or stand a fair chance against old titles.
75 developers have asked Apple to Please fix the App Store!
Now. This house is on fire.
