Anonymous, 17 Aug 2020Heres one advantage Android devices have over iOS.Lol. Only "Galaxy" has much more advantages over other platforms.
Then how will we be able to play in iOS or Android without getting updates for new bug and fixes of the app
It'll be interesting to see how Apple or Google responds to the duopoly of their app stores being challenged from various vectors.
Anonymous, 15 Aug 2020My dude you got confused. Google says only one option on apps downloaded from the play store! ... moreSo every non-GMS phone should be banned from purchasing skins in Fortnite and other games? If Google wanna demand that everyone use their garbage then all devices most be able to use it, some manufacturers cannot be locked out either everyone has GMS or non need to have it and Google is shooting them self in the foot by not protesting the Huawei ban and work with the smaller brands in Asia these brands may be small but combined leaves really many non-GMS devices on the market. :I #NOmoreFRAGMENTATION

Google says only one option on apps downloaded from the play store! If it's downloaded from the Appgallery then there should be a different option there. Most likely Huawei will ask for 30% (cos that's the industry standard. Even Steam charge 30%).
When you buy something from the supermarket you pay more than buying directly from the producer. Right? Cos the supermarket needs to make profit too. It's the same here.
It has always been the case. Now Epic decided they are the exception.

This may work fine for non entities but established players don’t need generic marketing (MS Office for example) offered as standard package from Playstore and developers have no clue how many got targeted how many converted etc...again for non entities this may not matter much but the business running using mobile platforms are in the dark how to improve their business and their business intelligence tools without violating App Store policies. Also, Apple is hosting its own Apps competing with others while managing the platform!
Developers competitors and their Apps will be mindlessly promoted in a common platform without highlighting their edge over the other and cutting same 30% from both!
It is inevitable that both App Store & Play Store will undergo rigorous scrutiny from authorities.

Why because Google demand that only their payment option is in the app which leaves epic with 2 fixes, one ditch the play store or two lock out every non-GMS device on the planet... Many of which are in Asia and not only China!

As for non-gms devices it's up to Epic to make the apps available on Huawei AppGallery.
[deleted post]80% of that 80% use cheap android devices because Apple is out of budget.
It's like saying people prefer a Kia over a BMW because there are more Kia's around.
Best selling premium phones are by far iPhones. Australia, Japan, USA, Nordic countries and UK prefer iOS. that's where the money's at

Sure they are trying but they still have tik tok there and much other crappy garbage and lets be fair do you think Google should be allowed to force Epic to remove the second pay option when that is the ONLY way for non GMS-devices to even buy stuff, if Google wanna make it this way then ALL MOST HAVE GMS! If you have a Huawei, Meizu or Energizer device without a proper compatibility you cannot really buy anything in the games/apps... :I

If you create your own app it means you are a developer (u get the license for 99 a year tyo use their developing kit) which means u can use your app just not sell it unless you sign up to an agreement that apple has to take 30% of the profits for transactions over 6.99 or 85% after a year of successful business
Apple's appstore is the most successful store because it is being more controlled. If anyone can upload anything on it without apple monitoring then you end up with viruses and stolen data.

Still Apple should open up their OS more honestly if I make my own app that is for me and me alone I should be allowed to run it on the iPhone I paid for... x-x

Epic should be banned everywhere. They are the cancer of the gaming world.
They charge 8 dollars for something that has NO cost. It's virtual money! If they made it 7 dollars they wouldn't have to pay apple a penny. They only have to pay the 30% if it's more tan 7 bucks. So they bash apple for not caring about the customers? Shameful company! I hope they go bankrupt!
Microsoft, Sony, Nintendo, Google, Apple, retail shops all get 30%! They name and shame apple just for the publicity cos they know some people are so easily to get triggered when apple is involved. People who expect everything for free and for cheap tricks to get stuff without paying. They made Billions on iOS by selling fortnite money? And u defend them?
AnonD-888522, 15 Aug 2020LOL you are not any making sense... At this point I will now end my engagement with you. ... moreRight because you just realized that any non-Google compatible device cannot be pay game developers when Google has their way you back off! >:D
