Cape Town iOS Developers Message Board › iOS Developers ask Apple to

iOS Developers ask Apple to

Dear Cape Town iOS Developer Meetup Group Members,

Please excuse this message, as it is not directly associated with organizing the next Meetup (which we should do asap!) - but is about a serious issue nevertheless: For a while now, especially small iOS developers face hard times in the App Store and the chance is high, that you are affected yourself.

One of the main reasons are changes Apple made in the App Store and it's search after acquiring a company called Chomp last year. Since then it has become much harder for users to find our apps, especially for paid ones. Other recent changes even disadvantage regular updates as our hard earned reviews vanish from the visibility of potential costumers.

WE CAN ASK APPLE TO FIX THIS!!! and – according to our contacts there have a very good chance to be heard. Over the last weeks we have carefully researched the biggest problems of the App Store for independent developers and are now launching


To achieve this, YOUR HELP IS NEEDED! Only if enough of us file a similar bug report, we will get a priority within the responsible teams at Apple to resolve the issues stated.

If you agree to the content of the page created, PLEASE PARTICIPATE and spread the word. Chances are high that you will help us all to get the originally brilliant App Store economy back on track and the perspective to make our living creating great apps.

Thank you very much for your consideration, please feel free to contact me with any questions.

Thorsten Rauser
