The Developers Union is no longer active. Although we failed to scale to a size that would neccesetate Apple’s attention, we feel that with your help we were able to bring attention and change to the issue of trials in apps on the App Store. We've deleted all user data. Thanks again, this community is 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 in July 2019 — to allow free trials for all apps in the App Store.
The Developers Union contributed to small but important changes in the App Store that allow for these trials
