  • Apple's fees are ridiculous. Often, so are DHH's tweets.
  • 30% != a third
  • Is DHH saying that HEY will only be available on iOS? Or almost all of the user base is expected to be iOS? Because that's the only way his statement makes sense.
  • Apple is saying that the app has no functionality as downloaded, it first requires a purchase. And when you do purchase from the iOS app, it takes you to a 3rd party instead of using the built-in system (from which they take a significant cut of course).
  • Apple isn't requiring purchases to only go through them... just ones made from iOS.
