I'm working with an app developer to get an app into the App Store and Google Play for one of my web sites. I go to set up an Apple Developer account, only to find that I have to pay $99 a year for the pleasure of having my app in the app store!
Not only that, iWank users can't install apps from external sources. I'm not an iMong, so I didn't know this before. Talk about a walled garden - Apple literally try to squeeze every last penny out of it's oh so loyal followers. iSheep are fucking idiots!
Unfortunately though, I have to be an iSheep as well, if I want my app in the App Store.
When it comes to Google, they're not much better. However that's just a one off $25 fee. Honestly, like these companies aren't making enough from us consumers!
I almost don't want to release the iOS app now. But I would be letting a lot of my users down if I don't. Apple, you're all cunts.
