App Developers Alliance Sides With Spotify In Apple Dispute
Now that Spotify has drawn a line in the sand over Apple’s app store rejection, supporters of both sides are starting to comment. Unsurprisingly, so far most, at least in tech, are lining up behind rebel Spotify.
A statement from the Application Developers Alliance President and CEO Jake Ward in response to Apple’s rejection of Spotify’s newest mobile application:
“For the app marketplace to continue to thrive, users to have choices, and developers to have a competitive opportunity, platforms must give publishers clear and consistent guidelines. Platforms deliberately creating friction and obstacles between publishers and users is bad for business and ultimately hurts consumers.”
