Danijel Ek iz Spotify-ja oprezan povodom novih promena na App Store-u

Danijel Ek, the CEO of Spotify, has expressed caution regarding Apple’s latest changes to the App Store. These changes will allow developers to distribute their applications through third-party markets only within the European Union, in accordance with the requirements of the European Digital Markets Act. While this change may initially seem like a victory for app developers, Ek has serious concerns about the new rules. Apple will still retain control over the approval of third-party markets and charge fees for downloads through these platforms. Additionally, applications with more than one million annual downloads will be required to pay a fee for each initial installation on a yearly basis. Spotify believes that these changes will have a negative impact on app developers, especially startups and those offering free applications.

Apple claims that the new changes provide developers with more options for distribution and payment of iOS applications. However, Ek and other critics argue that this is not in line with EU laws and does not promote fair market competition. The situation is tense, and the industry awaits the EU’s response to these changes and whether there will be additional adjustments from Apple to ensure that the new policies contribute to an open and fair digital market.
