★ Let’s Consider Some of the Implications of Third-Party Payment Processing for In-App Purchasing on iOS and Androidhttps://t.co/nxBzXe6qIW— Daring Fireball (@daringfireball) September 1, 2021
Lot of the discussion around this, especially from Apple’s side, makes it sound like a potential in-app payment wild west. What that ignores is that there are payment processors that customers *do* trust — Amazon, Stripe, PayPal, et al https://t.co/kxpMa5t9tT— Steve Troughton-Smith (@stroughtonsmith) September 1, 2021
How does Apple’s in-app purchase stay as a preferred option for consumers given the choice? By *competing*. Lower rates & better terms for developers. If Apple’s IAP really were the best option out there, developers wouldn’t be looking elsewhere to try and sustain their business— Steve Troughton-Smith (@stroughtonsmith) September 1, 2021
Those services are just as easy, if not easier, as Apple’s to cancel/refund/unsub with. And prices will be lower, as a result, if offered side by side. There is nothing stopping Apple enforcing — by policy — that all apps using IAP must adhere to the system IAP family controls— Steve Troughton-Smith (@stroughtonsmith) September 1, 2021
The App Store is one of those things in which the average consumer just wants it to work. They don't care about gripes (valid & invalid) that developers have.— Neil Cybart (@neilcybart) September 1, 2021
Not enough developers are willing to admit this and by extension recognize unintended consequences of App Store changes.
If Apple cared about consumers more than the paltry sum it makes from developer revenue, it would drop App Store & In App Purchase commissions to as low as realistically possible, so that everybody would want to use the system. Match other processors — you can afford to— Steve Troughton-Smith (@stroughtonsmith) September 1, 2021
A couple thoughts re: this @gruber piece:— Steven Aquino (he/him) (@steven_aquino) September 1, 2021
1. He’s spot-on about “normal” people not giving a shit whether app stores should be opened up.
2. Apple’s subscription system is great for accessibility in terms of reducing cognitive load. https://t.co/owtGyqmU0g
8. I think that is bad for users directly, because it makes the internet a more confusing, chaotic and risky place.— Sam Bowman (@s8mb) September 1, 2021
I agree with John Gruber – most people don't wish their iPhone was more like a Windows PC, other than hobbyists and lobbyists.https://t.co/niuECRGnM7 pic.twitter.com/dYbpcO6rNP

한국이 이렇게 테크계에서 핫하게 언급된적이 있나 싶군. 아무튼 글 내용에는 대체적으로 동의합니다. https://t.co/3qmpD6QwzV— 푸른곰 (@purengom) September 1, 2021
나는 동의하기 어려운 그 무엇. 한국의 법률은 애플-인증된 비용체계의 부과를 부정한게 아님. 그냥 다른 체계도 얼마든지 들어올 수 있게 한 것 아닌가? 앱스토어의 '인증'이 꼭 애플의 것이어야만 할 이유는 여전히 없고, 그게 합당하다면 '경쟁'해서 이겨야지.https://t.co/rumxZ07uAV— 기린아 (@kirina77) September 1, 2021

Why users want digital platforms to "discriminate" between services that use them, and laws to make Amazon more like eBay will hurt competition.
