Apple’s App Store review process is hurting users, but we’re not allowed to talk about it.

  • At least in my experience, the rumors of malware and poor app quality on Android are greatly overstated.
  • It’s hard to say with credibility which platform has the most stable apps.
  • It’s much more plausible that Apple’s store has prettier apps and generates more revenue because it has the wealthiest, most tech-elite users than the review process itself.
  • The weight of the current process far exceeds what would be needed to keep the store clean and polished, versus, say, relying on automation and whitelisting.
  • There is certainly no reason to threaten developers who complain about the specifics of the process in the public.
