I heard about this on this week’s ATP. Good find on The Verge about the risk of being on any App Store.
If we or our customers were to violate, or an operating system platform provider or application store believes that we or our customers have violated, its terms of service or policies, that operating system platform provider or application store could limit or discontinue our or our customers’ access to its platform or store.
It’s convenient to buy from the App Stores, but I still like to buy Apps (on the Mac of course) directly from the developer for various reasons. One thing I always think about is that it makes them a lot more money that way. I wished there was another way on the phone as well.
