Apple Eases Rules for Publishers on Apps

pjfontillas (1743424) writes "Apple has quietly reversed their decision that required publishers who sell content and subscriptions in their iPhone and iPad apps to go through iTunes, with Apple taking a 30% cut. http://www.nytimes.com/2011/06/10/technology/10apple.html?_r=1&hp

It's not so quiet in the workplace, however, as this news has a pretty big influence on developer workloads.

Here at The New York Times our developers breathe a sigh of relief once we realized we don't have try and work around that requirement like The Financial Times did: http://www.nytimes.com/2011/06/08/technology/08ftapp.html?scp=10&sq=apple&st=cse

Apple seems to have been doing much better with their community (consumers and developers alike) recently. As a long-time Linux advocate it's hard to say but I've actually come to appreciate some of Apple's products."
