Tech and the Fake Market tactic
Anil Dash

“ Even if an app does succeed, the app stores promote an ad-supported model that makes app creators dependent on the tech company’s platform for distribution, instead of an app deriving revenues directly from its users.”

Do they? I’ve created apps and on the app creation screen you can enter the price of an app. That’s less work than integrating the ad platform into an app. Or has this changed? I’d like to see a link to back this up.
