Epic Games sued Apple so they could make more money from Fortnite - Apple sued back because THEY wanted more money through the App Store. But is that the whole story? It's clearly not, because we made a whole video about it. This fight is a WAY bigger deal than a simple cash grab.

  • Speaking as an actual iOS developer, I completely disagree that this would help developers universally, it might aid these few huge companies but I expect it would harm smaller teams and independent developers who wouldn’t have the resources necessary to go their own way. To some extent the App Store actually provides a more level playing field between developers. You also have to consider the huge amount of resources apple puts into aiding developers, this has to be payed for somehow, to me, an ‘Apple tax’ paying for it makes a lot of sense. If you took all the code that makes up an App like Spotify, a large part of it will actually be written directly by Apple in the form of various frameworks. Not to mention the development of Swift itself. At the end of the day, if Apple was forced to allow bypassing of the App Store, it would result in lower quality apps, risk to most users, and would makes things harder for the average iOS dev. Epic and Spotify are only raising this for their own financial gain, they couldn’t care less about anything else.

    Robin DouglasRobin DouglasIl y a 18 jours
    • @TKPS what I’m getting at in my last paragraph is that Spotify etc. have no inherent interest in the success of other developers whereas Apple does have some as that success both benefits Apple directly as well as through keeping and bringing more users and other developers to their platform. I’m from the UK, I definitely wouldn’t trust our politicians to make informed and rational decisions on this stuff. Ideologically there is a problem with apple having so much control, however I think the reality is that disrupting that would make things worse for most people in the industry as well as for users

      Robin DouglasRobin DouglasIl y a 16 jours
    • That last paragraph smacks of the 'think of the children' argument. I'd be surprised if this is even allowed outside the US. Lack of regulation is responsible and it's to one's local member that people should be going. But then the US government has also become so corrupted by money, that avenue is probably closed too. When it boils down to brass tacks, the CHOICE should be there. No matter what Apple spent in development. Any company will invest money in a venture if they have guaranteed huge profits in PERPETUITY, who wouldn't? I remember when Ebay announced a 'trial' in Australia whereby Paypal would be the ONLY payment method allowed. Federal government squashed that PDQ.

  • I completely disagree. Apple works very hard to make sure malwares viruses etc stays out from their eco system and many out there have no idea how much malwares are constantly penetrating into either google or apple system applications every minute of the day. On top of that, my playground my rules is good because it benefits both parties in terms of profit and security. When others are happy, why not Epic and oh please stop with that "I'm trying to help others too" crap. Profit seekers always jump into an opportunity when they see one. Epic is just greedy. End of story.

  • Epics argument that side loading or alt app stores on google devices is entirely retarded. The only thing android does is warn you that malicious apps can install themselves when the setting is off. I use fdroid instead of google play. I have no issues. Epic are being whiney babies. I cannot wait till the fortnite fad dies.

  • If a developers fee is "taxed" 30% before they have to pay income tax in their country of origin, then Apple/Bezo/Sony etc should get taxed from those countries the end-customer/app-user sends currency from. As Apple claims it to be an invented industry, it thus makes it kinda infrastructural. As it is online and globally accessable, an US appointed judge should not have the final rule, but who could/should that be? UN? I don't know, but we can't say that TimBL didn't warn us back in the day ;-)

  • China has 48 percent share in Epic games. So basically it's chinese influence to file a lawsuit against apple and Google so that all the money directly goes into the chinese pockets. Also by not listing epic games app on app and play store means china has no interference of Apple and Google in regard of consumer privacy. They want all the money + also also slip into secure Apple devices via epic games app. World needs to be more aware.

  • If 30% is too much, some of our governments need to re-evaluate what they expect us to pay as tax on top of having to pay VAT. I heard that NFL players can loose up to 52% of the money when all is said and done. 30% is nothing on someone's platform tbh. Maybe create your own OS, hardware and do the markeingt so you can keep every cent🤔. Yes 30% is harsh but either create your platform or play by the rules. In fact, maybe don't release your app on their platform🤷.

  • I think epic just wants to bring the epic games store to mobile and they want to be their own type of app store so they dont have to pay the 30 percent which is bs. They should still have to go through the app stores, but it sounds like a good idea to change the standard cut for digital app stores down to 25 percent instead of 30. I think that would be pretty fair.

  • Apple were the first to create a service like the App Store that works as well as it does. You download the app, it's ready to be used. No need to install it, it's ready for use when the download completes. The vendor gets paid, the user is protected and vendors don't need to setup their own infrastructure for distributing their products. Distribution, payment, security are non-trivial efforts. Those things cost money. "It's just a digital product!" Sure it is. It still needs to be sent to your computer, right? If you don't charge for your app, it's distributed for free, which would definitely cost the creator real money to handle, certainly in volume. That doesn't mean that there can't be problems between certain vendors and Apple, there are examples aplenty. Overall Apple offer a great services its users can trust so that developers can see their products being used worldwide. That's not a small thing, it's a big thing. As for third parties building their own version of an app store and selling products: save yourself the trouble, I'm never getting it. I don't trust third parties to care as much about the security of Apple's eco system as Apple do.
