Craig Hockenberry on the various ways Apple treats the Mac App Store as a second-class citizen to the iOS App Store: no TestFlight (which means no testing betas against production iCloud servers), no analytics, and, just to rub salt in the wound, they haven’t applied the new rule that disallows app reviews from users running beta versions of the OS.
I think the thing that bothers me most about this situation is the
inequality. Mac developers aren’t getting the same value from the
App Store as their counterparts on iOS. We all pay Apple 30% of
our earnings to reach our customers, we should all get the same
functionality for that fee.
