Apple approves temporary moratorium on fees for Facebook plan for online events


“This remains a bad experience for customers. Gamers want to jump directly into a game from their curated catalog within one app just like they do with movies or songs, and not be forced to download over 100 apps to play individual games from the cloud,” a Microsoft spokesperson told CNBC earlier this month.

Apple vs. Developers 

Most companies that build iPhone apps are complaining about the App Store fee policies. There has been recent litigation with Epic Games.

On Thursday, tech companies including Spotify (NYSE: SPOT), Match Group (NASDAQ: MTCH), the maker of dating apps like Tinder, Epic Games, and Basecamp announced they had created a nonprofit group called the Coalition for App Fairness

The coalition wants to force Apple to make changes that will reduce costs to consumers by lobbying for regulation to prevent app platforms/marketplaces from charging  developers “unfair, unreasonable or discriminatory fees or revenue shares.”
