If Apple weren't so fucking greedy that it's like it pains them to see someone make money where they don't get a cut, this whole stupid thing would be over already.

The people with an app on their phone who want to then go and make additional purchases, but to save ~10-20% of the asking price will go and visit a website and go through all of those steps instead of just clicking the 'buy now' button on their phone are not going to be a group of people in large enough numbers to seriously hurt apples bottom line, and there is no need to strongarm developers for offering a 'no middleman' service, especially when their product is multiplatform.

Tim Sweeney can go eat a dick, but it doesn't mean he's in the wrong on this one.

How can Apple honestly justify shit like this?

That seems like a really bad idea.  Iíd expect nothing less from clown shoes Timmy.

Also: did Riotous get ultra-nuked?

Whoa, no Member listing? Thatís ironic.

Google cutting Play Store commission to 15% on first $1 million in revenue for all Android devs

Googs trying to seem like the good guys lol.

Interesting, thats almost the inverse of steams sliding scale, where it lowers the more you make.

Starting on July 1, 2021 we are reducing the service fee Google Play receives when a developer sells digital goods or services to 15% for the first $1M (USD) of revenue every developer earns each year. With this change, 99% of developers globally that sell digital goods and services with Play will see a 50% reduction in fees.

:o
