App Subscription Optimism ➝

Nick Heer, commenting on Riccardo Mori’s app subscription piece:

I’m generally optimistic because the apps you love most probably come from developers who respect their users. Developers like Panic, Flexibits, Cultured Code, Tapbots, Sam Oakley, and Ole Zorn — they actually care. And those developers who do not care about their apps’ users will find it very difficult to retain subscribers.

My thoughts exactly — the more I think about these changes, the more I believe the market will work itself out. It might be a little bumpy at first, as developers test the waters with new revenue models, but I don’t expect it’ll take long for everything to settle into a comfortable position for users and developers alike.
