To put the record straight, Apple is a hardware company. They control what runs and what doesn’t on their platform. I see nothing wrong in it. Sure, there are hooks that you can make here and there, but app store is a business model that they own, and if your customer can afford to pay for it, you must by all means comply.
Thank you Bret — I wish I could have more clarity in articulating it.
The article attempts to highlight that in programming, seniority as a differentiator in value addition is eroded — in reality, and much more in perception of people who makes hiring decisions.
Their dev portal is quite counter-intuitive when it comes to managing teams and profile — it’s a hotchpotch of links and data. Another nightmare is their app store search, wherein typing auto-suggests your app but results completely omit it! Small devs enjoy NO discoverability even from exact title searches.
