Life Outside the Mac App Store

Dan Counsell:

It’s been 4 years and throughout all this time we've continued to sell RapidWeaver in and out of the Mac App Store. I expected direct sales to trail off as the years went on. I kept thinking it was about to happen… but it never did. In fact, most days the direct version of RapidWeaver continues to outsell the Mac App Store version.

This is what I’m seeing as well. Given that the “storeagent: Unsigned app” Mavericks bug that can prevent Mac App Store apps from launching is still present in 10.9.2, I’m glad that Apple’s store is not my exclusive sales channel.
