Affected by Apple’s 3.3.1 rule? Here’s something you can do
Many developers and businesses are being massively affected by this little addition to the developers agreement. Some of us have new apps that are nearly done, some of us are companies with real projects already on the books and starting development, some are the actual tool makes (like Unity and adobe) who are now loosing massive amounts of possible money.
We’ve heard all of the reasonings as to *why* apple would do this, but here’s a reason not to: Apple needs realize that the reason they have such a massive appstore catalog is BECAUSE of the 3rd party apps. I’m willing to bet that at least 50% (that’s a safe bet, I think it’s actually much higher ) of the games in the appstore are created with tools other than Xcode. it’d be interesting to see, in their tv commercials, HOW many of the apps displayed were created with non Xcode tool kits – that’d be VERY interesting indeed.
So, if you’ve created an app, or know of an app that was created with a 3rd party tool like Unity, please take a moment and check to see if the app is listed in this spreadsheet. If now, please add it:
PS> if you can’t get it to load initially, keep trying – there’s a ton of traffic 😉
