Apple’s No Internal Client Syndrome

Dominik Wagner:

The other issue that this kind of quality control can’t cover, is services and frameworks where Apple itself has no internal clients. The biggest example being Game Center.

There are other examples of this problem, the most obvious of which is probably the application sandbox.

Update (2012-10-26): See also the Hacker News thread and more from Wagner on Game Center, Letterpress, and Lost Cities.

Actually, I believe that Chess is connected to Game Center as of Mountain Lion...

@AlphaCenBeeBee That’s correct, although Game Center first shipped in September 2010, while Mountain Lion shipped in July 2012.
