Don't you just love selling your stuff in a store where the owner periodically shoves your product out of the way? Sure is tons of fun when Apple picks the winners.


How is that different than ANY OTHER retail environment?

If you sell a product in a brick and mortar store, there will still be sales, displays, items marked 'best seller' and probably even displays setup with certain products, while other products remain on the shelves, perhaps even covered in dust and behind a pallet jack!

I can't think of any online software store that doesn't do these same sorts of things. What good is it to a customer if the software store just throws all the apps in there willy nilly. Customers want ratings, they want to know what sells well, and they want occasional promotions like this where certain apps are highlighted.

Apple is no different here than any other retail environment.

These all seem awfully expensive for applications that essentially display a list of things to do.

Or, maybe they're saying "our default Apps are pretty good, but if you really want to take one of them to the next level, take a look at these".

Apple can't do everything, (I'm sure they would love to...) but if they did, iOS wouldn't ship every year.

These apps are extremelyl limited in functionality and originally way over priced.

Make an application like Pencil Me In [from Sarrus and later buried @ Sun Microsystems Inc] for $39.99 or $99 Enterprise license of unlimited number of clients hitting a PostgreSQL 9.2.x+, Oracle, MySQL 5.5+, even SQLite or NoSQL to do what it did and you'd have a winner:

OS X Applications with limited functionality to be similar to iOS apps is not what the consumer needs.


Are you serious? Yes lets make the application with as many features and clutter as possible, thats exactly what consumers need.
