  • Apple not a monopoly but must allow alternate payment methods for apps, judge rules

    The verdict is that Apple is correct in throwing Epic out of the App Store for violating the terms of the agreement.
    Also there is no judgment that says Apple has to allow them back in.
    Epic does not get its own separate payment store in App Store.

    Apple is not behaving in an unfair monopolistic way.
    Apple is not allowed to prevent developers and their app from directing the customer outside the App Store.
    But there is no judgment that says that Apple cannot charge extra service fee if a developer promote outside exchange.

  • Epic Games' CEO responds to Apple's countersuit in Twitter thread

    Orwell's 1984 reference is completely wrong. The correct reference should be Animal Farm.  Tim Sweeney (aka Napoleon the pig) is urging young kids to fight injustice, when it fact it is a cynical ploy to get the Epic App platform side loaded on the Apple App Store.  Meet the new boss, same as the old boss.

  • Apple shuts down Epic Games developer account

    I wonder what Epic is thinking...
    I get they are frustrated with the 30% “Apple Tax” but their actions make no sense.

    I'm thinking that for them, they can only win.   They can't lose:
    Their game is to break down the walls of the walled garden.  
    -- If they succeed then they win
    -- if they don't succeed then they go back to obeying the rules -- and have lost very little (but gained a bunch of free publicity!)

    But they look like fools for starting this mess.
    Or...during their absence in the App Store another game comes along such as Fall Guy, and Fortnite becomes a has been game that kids stop playing.
