Last week some users and developers experienced an issue that
displayed a “damaged” error when attempting to open select apps
from the Mac App Store, including popular apps like 1Password,
Tweetbot, and Byword. Today, Apple has sent an email to developers
explaining what happened and how to fix their apps.
Put aside the argument about whether a fiasco like this should have ever happened in the first place. Why did it take six days for Apple to publicly respond and explain what happened?
