Apple Now Allows Users to Tip with In-App Purchases

15 June 2017

For a company that prizes the user experience as much as Apple does, it's disappointing that the supposed walled garden that is the App Store is helping scammers bilk iOS users out of insane amounts of money. App names are now limited to 30 characters - down from 50 - and these shortened titles can now be supplemented with a subtitle. Putting aside the fact that there are dozens of free alternatives (and Apple plans to add QR code scanning to its camera in iOS 11), a free trial doesn't sound so bad, right?

According to a statement issued by Zhihu, after the update of the iOS3.5.3 version app, the tipping feature will be connected to Apple's in-app purchase mechanism, and Apple will take 32 percent as commission.

The app offers services which are essentially unnecessary, such as an iOS antivirus and malware scanning service.

But it also illustrates the risks associated with people who read about VPNs in the mainstream media and sign up for the first thing they see without first doing their research. Hence, the categories tab has been broken into two - Games and Apps, which is further subdivided by categories. Having said that, a list view in the old design had more games in the initial view.

Earlier in order to rate some app users were forced to leave the app and visit App store for rating the app which was time-consuming and inconvenient. As long as they are okay with Apple taking 30%. In addition, a new tab called "Today" features the daily additions to the App Store.

Apple has updated its App Store policies to allow users to tip developers through an in-app purchase.

If a user chooses to leave a review, the app has to wait for at least a full year and after a new version of the app has been released before it can ask the user to review it again-a feature developers my find too restrictive and make it hard to get feedback on new features.

For consumers, Lin suggests reviewing your subscriptions. Apple is now making this possible by permitting tipping from within apps using in-app purchases.

To summarize, as the App Store makes the shift to strongly controlled curated content it will become more important than ever to get featured but it might become even more hard to get featured which may impact small/medium developers.
