Happy With Apple? Consider Tipping Its App Providers

Happy With Apple? Consider Tipping Its App Providers

He confirmed on Sensor Tower, a site that provides estimates of app revenue, that this app's estimated revenue was $80,000/month.

Lin next made a decision to download the app and try it out. The app "Mobile protection:Clean & Security VPN" claims to scan your iPhone for viruses and malware, charging a whopping $99.99 for a 7-day subscription (it seems to have disappeared now).

Apple iOS 11 will come with a very useful feature called Do Not Disturb While Driving which will help drivers stay focused by silencing notifications automatically.

Apple also said that it has paid out nearly $70 Billion to developers in the last 9 years and this doesn't account the ad revenues that most of the free apps make.

Apple has released a new revenue stream that could unleash a new community of digital content creators, which is already thriving in China.

The other problem is Apple's relatively new app advertising system, App Store Search Ads, which Lin found several scam apps abusing.

Last month, Apple turned its attentions toward in-app tips, as the feature sidestepped the 30 percent tax that Apple receives from in-app purchases.

Later, I dug deeper to find that unfortunately, these aren't isolated incidents - they're fairly common in the app store's top grossing lists.

Apple has unveiled iOS 11 at its recently held developers conference, alongside new iPad models. Hopefully, when iOS 11 launches these bugs will be removed as well.

Given the awful title of this app (inconsistent capitalization, misplaced colon, and grammatically nonsensical "Clean & Security VPN?"), I was sure this was a bug in the rankings algorithm.

Basically, they wanted to be assholes and are frustrated with Apple for not letting them be assholes.

Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) has new App Store policy updates that move any voluntary in-app tipping to the category of formal in-app purchase and Apple can take its 30% cut. Apple has explained how they need to carefully test and evaluate the apps submitted to ensure they are safe to use and meet all their requirements. First, the whole point of the App Store having a review goal is so that nefarious apps can't get approved. It's always a good idea to check your subscriptions on a regular basis, if only to see if you're subscribed to apps you're no longer using. More horribly, if an app isn't updated for 64-bit iOS devices, then you'll be encountering some trouble with them when you install or restore them to your device.
