The Developers Union is no longer being worked on. Brent, Jake, Loren, and Roger want to say thanks for your support. With your help, we feel that we were able to bring attention and change to the issue of trials in apps on the App Store, but between having babies, getting married, and being busy with work, none of us have the time to dedicate to it anymore. We've deleted all user data. Thanks again, you're the best. ❤️
We believe that people who create great software should be able to make a living doing it. So we created The Developers Union to advocate for sustainability in the App Store.
In May 2018, together we asked Apple to publicly commit — by the tenth anniversary of the App Store this July — to allowing free trials for all apps in the App Stores before July 2019. After that, we planned on starting to advocate for a more reasonable revenue cut and other community-driven, developer-friendly changes.
