@bsneed Wasn't talking about that split. Just saying that 30% cut is equivalent to 43% price raise. Or, in your example, 21.5% raise.

@bsneed BTW, to end up with the same amount after a 30% cut you'd have to raise prices 43%.

@bsneed I don't understand what you're getting at. You want to raise prices less than the 30% so that the Apple customers are subsidized?

@bsneed You're not allowed to just raise the price on those buying from the App Store.

@bsneed Raise the price for all your non-Apple customers? How is "not do it" an option if you have an existing app/service?

@bsneed To vote with your feet you would need to degrade the experience of your existing app. Then customers complain to you.
