Seriously, Apple launched the App Store with no mechanism for Trials and Upgrades and we all just though “Meh, that’s fine.” Turns out, we screwed over everything by accepting that.
I love iOS and all these apps, but once we lose the good developers, we’ll lose the good apps. And then we’ll lose the platform.
I wrote a bunch of crap about this, but didn't feel like I had a coherent thought. Thankfully Ben Brooks took care of it for me. I'm not convinced the top lists are a positive or a negative. But these other failures are a huge negative.
