C’mon Phil

Friday, June 10th, 2016

Looks like Phil Schiller is cleaning the Augean stables over at the Mac App Store. Approvals are happening in one day. Subscriptions are coming soon.

Could it possibly be that powerful applications, you know, apps that can actually do something, such as BBEdit, MailSteward, and many others, could maybe be allowed in the store, even though they are not sandboxed? Assuming of course that the developer is properly vetted.

After all, Apple gives itself a pass for its own applications.

Why does Apple not want to be involved in the market for Macintosh applications that are actually able to do something? It is insanity. I’m counting on Phil.
