Being on the App Store is a tough business, I know from experience. Apple can’t possibly feature all the apps that are in the store, that’s obvious, but it pisses me off when I see Apple being so self-serving to put a big banner for Drake’s new album on the App Store. He doesn’t have an app!
Yeah, we know you got an exclusive for Drake’s new album. There’s this place called iTunes/Apple Music where I can go see that. When I go to the App Store, show me some great apps, not a Drake promotion so you can make back whatever you spent to get that exclusive.
I guess if you’re one of Apple’s favorites (Taylor Swift or Drake), you can get placed anywhere you want. It seems wrong that developers now have to fight with Apple Music for space on the App Store.
