Probably only those that are lazy will do the apple way cuz it doesn't hurt them but for those of us that know this will probably try to help the DEV out more than appleNow the question is will iOS users use in-app purchase option or click on a link to open a browser to publishers' web sites for subscription purchase?
$1.50 is 30% of $5.00 and it is just a theoretical example.Er.. I believe you have your numbers backwards. It's $1.50 for the Developer and $0.50 for Apple, not the other way around, if we follow your example.
And where are you getting this 'fact' that Apple will just offer the same service themselves and pocket 100% of the cash? They're not a news service nor do they offer any subscription-based games.
Atleast they are allowing links for developers to some extent. Unfortunately the vast majority will use the most convenient option.Well, kinda, from how I understand it, you're still allowed to have a link that leads to your site for purchases.
