Folks: One thing that seems to be missing in this discussion is the point of view of the “client”, the one who downloads the app and pays for it. I agree that the hoops one has to go through to get an app in the Apple store are a big pain, and that it seems unfair for Apple to get a cut of online advertising. But, does the end user care?
I code in Livecode and always curse and struggle to get an app to load onto my phone. I also sympathize with the seemingly constant changes to Apple's requirements. But, as a user of iPhone apps, I really appreciate Apple’s attention to privacy and security. Would I sacrifice the user oriented qualities for the developer hassles? Probably not, at least with out a lot of other info about how Apple’s hoops for developers impact the user side for me. But I would find it unacceptable to sacrifice security and privacy.
