Apple killing the affiliate program for apps feels downright hostile and petty. I am personally not that affected because we saw this coming years ago and we adapted – but it’s a huge blow to small publications, indie devs, and others who rely on this to earn commissions. Sad.

Their verbiage is just the worst - because we have editorial content you shouldn’t. Very hostile towards those that promote their platform and discuss their apps. LumaFusion the best video editor on iOS gets shunned by Apple in editorial content. Not happy by this move.

Sucks for publishers, but Devs get hit hard. Kills incentive for organic promotion, and puts the onus devs. Takes a further cut from them really. Seems at odds with improving the Mac App Store

I hope the "new App Store" has much better search. Sometimes when I search for the exact name of an app it doesn't even show up in the search results. It'll suck when I read about an app, go search for it, & don't find it. Hope bloggers still include links after this...

i imagine there's a better reason for doing this besides being hostile and petty.

It's only 7% & accounts for very little of our revenue but as an indie dev trying to squeak out a living for our family, every $ counts. Why wouldn't you use the program? It takes seconds to setup. I'm disappointed it's going away for apps.

Yes, if you look at the immediate affects of each one individually, we've found that to be true, especially of the smaller sites. However, looking at the long term cumulative affect, it does produce results especially from the larger sites. Will you help us prove it ?😉😁
