‘Wordle May Be Fixed, but the App Store Is Still a Total Mess’
Jason Cross, writing for Macworld:
It’s [sic] would be a trivially small amount of money for Apple to create an internal group dedicated to proactively finding and eliminating scam, copycat, infringing, exploitive apps. But every one it finds costs Apple money. And doing nothing isn’t hurting sales, not when it’s so much cheaper to just market the App Store as so secure and trustworthy. Apple seems to view App Store trust and quality as a marketing activity more than a real technical or service problem.
The scams and ripoffs keep on coming. While I don’t think that Apple actively views scams as a profit area, there’s no denying that they do benefit — 15-30% of every immoral transaction — from them. And that’s pretty gross.
