You’re so full of shite Marco...I only make payments through the Apple App Store because I feel it more secure and have never paid for an app in the MS or Google store. You’re so conflicted as an app dev it makes you sound kinda silly.

You’re so wrong Marco. We don’t assume the app money goes to developers at all. And we don’t care anyway.
