Fully agree. As a developer myself, the whining coming from the weekend-developers and McSweeney is embarrassing. I remember the store model's of old where packaged software and distribution of that software makes the 30% App Store fee look like a complete bargain. Apple has nothing to be apologetic for. Apple's popularity comes from CUSTOMERS, and not developers. Apple's App Store gives developers access to countless customers with disposable income. Unlike Android, Apple uses its own hardware, OS, and App Store. It's a packaged toaster. Developers should not have a say in telling Apple how to run its hugely successful ecosystem. If you don't like how the App Store works, then go elsewhere. Apple owns iOS, not you. Want to side-load apps? Then jailbreak your phone and be quiet.
