Today we discuss the upcoming changes to the iOS 8 App Store and how we’ll be affected by them. We consider the new Explore tab and how it will affect app discoverability, app bundles and what you can and can’t do with them, video previews and their effect on the purchase process, as well as other changes that may impact our businesses.
Every month there are more great articles and content about the business of Mac and iOS development than we have time to discuss on the show. If you’d like to receive our monthly newsletter with the best of these links, as well as a summary of past episodes, be sure to sign up for our mailing list at http://releasenotes.tv/mailinglist.
