For application developers, we can say that today’s best platform is the App Store. However, there is backlash for App Store commissions.
Publishers are responsive for App Store commissions
Application developers also have to overcome a number of difficulties while putting their applications on the market after difficult development processes. Moreover, these difficulties continue in application sales.
We can say that Apple, which is the target name of the developers, has been open to developers for a while. The main reason for this is the high commissions received by the App Store.
The tension between Google, Apple and Epic Games has also spread to the application developers. Many giant publishers from the Wall Street Journal to the New York Times were also involved in these discussions. The same percentage of commissions Apple receives from all developers has become the main focus of these criticisms. The developers are charged 30 percent commission for the 2 TL purchase and the 300 TL purchase. This commission puts application developers in a very difficult situation.
Apple helped Amazon a lot with a corporate agreement it made. It reduced the commission received for Prime Video subscriptions from 30 percent to 15 percent.
Digital Content Next CEO Jason Kint said in a letter to Tim Cook that the monopolistic stance of tech companies has badly affected many industries. However, we will see together whether Apple will make a decrease in this commission.
