iOS 7.1.1 App Store Labels Apps With In-App Purchases

Juli Clover:

Apple has provided an “Offers In-App Purchases” disclosure on individual app detail pages since March of 2013, but now the App Store has been updated to include a small “In-App Purchases” notification for apps in Top Charts listings and on specific featured apps listings, such as in the “Great Free Games” category.

I think there’s a lot more to be done along these lines, but this is a good first step.

Marco Arment:

Apple has shown, by consistent inaction over the last six years, that they simply aren’t interested in putting substantial effort into improving the App Store. It’s just not a priority. They’ll do the bare minimum to keep it working, and not much more.

And I think they’re committing a massive long-term strategic error.
