Software giant Apple has announced the launch of a subscription service for content-based apps in its app store. While this may sound like a good plan on the surface, the announcement is receiving backlash for some of its finer points.
We’re analyzing coverage from Apple, The Atlantic, The Washington Post, and ZDNet.
Apple’s latest move will streamline in-app content, eliminating individual purchases in exchange for a flat rate subscription price set by publishers. And as the company explains, it’s doing all this to ensure it gets a cut.
“Our philosophy is simple—when Apple brings a new subscriber to the app, Apple earns a 30 percent share; when the publisher brings an existing or new subscriber to the app, the publisher keeps 100 percent and Apple earns nothing,”
Sounds pretty good right? That’s what one writer for the Atlantic said too; until he dug a little deeper into Apple’s new plan.
“...there are a couple of problems here. Developers are explicitly prohibited from routing customers around the system from within the application and publishers are unable to offer better deals outside of the App Store.”
Apple will also handle all billing information -- giving users the choice to share or withhold personal information with publishers. This could effectively undercut a publisher’s ability to sell other subscriptions. A writer for the Washington Post describes this as Apple’s latest attempt to strong-arm content providers.
“Essentially, Apple proposes to annex a developer’s subscription business--then charge that firm 30 percent for the privilege. That 30 percent figure is the same share Apple keeps from sales of applications. There, it provides valuable hosting services, copious bandwidth and one-click installation and updates. But in providing subscription billing, Apple will do little more than run a cash register.”
And a ZDNet writer explains why Apple’s latest move not only angers him, but has influenced him to finally sell his iPad.
“I like good software, services and subscription content and enjoy rewarding the companies that produce them with my subscription cash. I have a real problem with a company that is simply providing another vehicle for that content to take such a healthy cut, and deny alternate methods of selling the content to the providers.”
Apple cut a similar deal with News Corp for its iPad exclusive publication “The Daily” in early February. So what do you think of Apple’s new subscription service? Sound off in our comments section.

Move over Apple. The Android Marketplace now has the highest number of free apps available for download - according to the Dutch app analytics company Distimo.
According to the study, Apple’s iPhone still has more total apps, but Android has 10,000 more free apps available. In March, Android’s Marketplace grew 16%, while Apple’s App Store grew only 6%.
CBS’ Business Network says it’s obvious why the Marketplace is growing so quickly.
“If you think about the adoption growth rate that has propelled Android, this makes sense. More customers mean more developer interest. More developer interest begets more apps, which help draw more customers.”
But a blogger at IntoMobile brings up the age old question - does quantity mean quality?
“Free apps are great and all, but they don’t always equate to quality; do you guys think a bigger number of free apps will be a real attraction to phone shoppers, or are the real quality apps made by developers who get paid well?”
And Phones Review cites a previous report claiming most developers still prefer Apple.
“... [W]e have already seen a previous report that says developers are more inclined to develop for iOS than Android, so this new report should for now at least be taken with a pinch of salt.”
But a blogger for Zmarter thinks previous notions about Android are changing fast
“While Google’s Android Marketplace in the past often elicited giggles and guffaws when compared to Apple’s App Store, the Android app alternative needs to be taken more seriously.”
If the stores continue growing at these same rates, Android will overtake Apple in as little as five months. But the study also says, the market is always changing.
CNET: “Distimo notes that any growth estimates are gauged on the past three months of activity across the ecosystem, which ‘could easily accelerate or slow down.’”
We’ve all heard Apple’s “there’s an app for that” slogan, but what’s Android’s catchphrase? Geek**** thinks if Android really wants to compete, it needs to get the word out.
“Now if Google would just get a sexy ad campaign together so people watching TV had some idea that someone else offered thousands of cool apps for mobile devices…”

PepsiCo wants to get intimate with you. Through vending machines, that is. The company recently announced plans to install the first “Social Vending System,” which features the ability to gift drinks, send personalized videos and connect with the Pepsi Refresh Project -- all at the touch of a screen.
All you have to do is select gift a drink, enter your friend’s number and Voila, instant gratification for your special someone... Well, until they redeem their drink at the nearest social vending machine. (Video: Youtube)
It seems pretty social, but as Mashable points out, the lack of actual social media connections in the vending machine could be a threat to the machine’s success.
“Though Pepsi’s model represents an evolution in the possibilities for vending machines, the lack of a Facebook or Twitter tie-in is a glaring omission. But considering some recent experiments with Facebook-enabled objects, a vending machine tie-in with the social network seems imminent.”
PCWorld sees the new machines as Pepsi’s latest attempt to claw back to the top of the pop industry. With the right marketing, it could appeal to social media-hungry consumers.
“Pepsi - known for its Refresh Everything goodwill campaign and a bevy of social media efforts - had ranked second for decades in that sales category... The people who are going to see continued success with social media are going to believe in integration. It's not about isolation."
Pepsi might have social vending, but Coke doesn’t plan on getting left out. LiveLeak reveals Coke’s new interactive vending machine, which features an app store, cashless vending and a plethora of other techy features.
“You can scan your phone with your code and you’ll automatically get back your Coke reward points and you can buy Coke with your points—so, no money. Also, the interactive photo booth… Basically a green screen application and you can take you photos while you’re waiting. And this is my personal favorite, the holographic dance pad.”
So do you think Pepsi and Coke are on the right track with their new interactive vending machines? Pop us a comment in our comments section.
