App Store Fees Fall Again! Check out the recent article from the Developers Appliance
It’s awesome to see more price decreases … before the government dismantles our industry.
Kudos to our app store partners for another round of price cuts! While most devs are less fixated on app store fee formulas and more on the services and tools they offer, falling fees are always a welcome surprise. Apple and Google are now taking turns sweetening their deals and fine-tuning what and how apps are treated based on evolving app monetization schemes. We’ll leave it to Google to give the details – see their blog post for more – but this is another clear sign that platforms recognize that developer success is their success too.
For years, app store competition has focused on the “supply-side”; trying to build the best tools, offer the best community experience, engage better or address store mechanics and add new features. More importantly, the underlying platforms are competing for consumers, and that means a growing demand for new features and the apps that capitalize on them. This was exactly what devs needed in a growing industry. Fees have been less of a focus – mostly because those developers most impacted are highly lucrative and successful franchises themselves. This latest round of fee cuts opens up many new monetization strategies and makes it easier for those on the cusp of success to breakthrough. Nothing but good news there!
