It’s not even a day after the Mac App store launched and already a bunch of problems started pouring in, starting from application downloads to many such problems. So, let’s check out what are the exact issues with the latest Mac App store which is making the Mac App Store as “Not Recommended”. Though the creation of Mac App Store is a great idea as it compiles all the apps under one umbrella but also the issues related to this have to be solved soon.
No Option to Get back Paid Apps
If you have thought that you can re purchase the apps from the Mac app store which you have earlier purchased from the app store then don’t expect this for at least now as Apple haven haven’t provided this feature. Though many of the developers are working to get this feature fixed in but still there is no time frame by when this will be back.
No Trial, Demo or Beta Versions
It was a period of joy when the apps were in trial, demo or even in the beta stage as they are free to try apps and also makes the decision easier whether to buy this if it’s a paid app or not. Also, when it’s in beta stage developers can pump in with several other features with the users requesting about the same. So, in the latest Mac App Store all this have been discontinued, you can now only download either the final versions of the app or the paid versions of the application.
Support will be harder to Experience
More than 3/4th apps in the Mac App Store are developed by the third party providers, so anytime the application developer wishes to release the app, Apple behaves like a middleman which first screens the app and then grants the permission to release the same. The problem with this type of release is that if an update needs to be released then it has to get approval from Apple which is a very tedious job as its very time consuming and also doesn’t allow to update the app frequently which hampers the relation between the app developer and the end user as Apple is acting like a middleman.
No paid upgrades
After no trials, beta and demo versions there also will be no paid upgrades to the apps which are downloaded. So next time if your paid app has got an update, then you need to separately buy the app from the App store again without any discounted prices at the same price.
Apple says NO to many
From now, the applications are not allowed to keep any code what so ever running in the background, the applications which seem to be imitating the other application will not be allowed to make place in the app space which means if there is one app which you love it and due to some additional features you may want to use some other equivalent apps then from now you will not be able to do that. From now onwards no devices are now allowed to request for the root access or the root permissions which means no software can have the access to the system files. Also, from now onwards no programs can download other programs. Also, most importantly it means that apps which needs to have a space in the app store have to be developed according to the standards of Apple and also at the same time needs to fulfill the desires of end user.
With such kind of restrictions, it’s evident that either Apple has to bow down with the feedback from the customers and follow the same or the users have to take a back and simply need to align themselves to the new rules of the app game.
