Rehashing the App Store Business Model

Unless there is some sort of significant App Store regime change or a decision maker gets a bump on the head followed by an epiphany, upgrade pricing and demos are not coming to the App Store or Mac App Store. Adjust your apps and business models accordingly.

-David Chartier, Apple already answered our requests for App Store upgrade pricing and demos”

David has a great point and others, such as the venerable Adam Grossman and Shawn Blanc, have decried the current rules regarding trials on the iOS and Mac App Stores. Neverthless, I am unsure that we will ever see a future in which free trials or upgrade pricing is a thing in Apple’s world. I am not on the App Store currently in any capacity, but in the future, for everyone’s sake, I hope that future consumers understand that, frugality aside, good things cost money.

Friction

There is no better reason to not do something
There is no better reason to try
There is no better reason to fight
Against tyranny and strife

Removal is often the goal
Removal is often the challenge
Removal is often not enough
To completely fix what hangs in the balance

But it can bring about great change
But it can bring light
But it can bring great joys
In the darkness of the night

And so I live with friction
And so I live with what is hard
And so I live with what I love
But I stay upon my guard
