A podcast about all things Macintosh. For Mac geeks, by Mac geeks. Episode 194. Why are more “A” tier indie devs leaving Apple’s Mac App Store (MAS)? This past week another developer, Bohemian Coding, announced they are leaving. This is just another in what seems like a growing list of top level Mac Developers who have tried the MAS and ultimately decided it’s not working. I said long ago that I wasn’t very keen on an App Store coming to that Mac, but when it arrived it did bring some nice conveniences. Still now almost five years later it seems like many of the same issues and concerns are still with us. What’s going on? What’s causing this exodus and what, if anything, should we or Apple be doing about it.
