Since the Mac App Store opened in 2011, we’ve also experimented there. However, despite a decade of feedback from countless developers and users, Apple has made scant few changes and the store remains beset with issues. When you couple the many shortcomings and issues with Apple’s restrictive polices that preclude most of our software from appearing there, the Mac App Store is clearly a poor fit for us. With the removal of Fission, we no longer have any products in the Mac App Store.
While Apple is busy fighting to keep every penny of profit they can squeeze from the iOS App Store, the Mac App Store continues to push away best-of-class Mac developers like Rogue Amoeba, who can’t even have a basic audio editor in the MAS without it being more hassle than it’s worth.
Apple’s biggest threat to its future is Apple.
