Episode 274: Actually The Business I Want To Run

Manton and Daniel discuss Apple’s short-lived restrictions on editing App Store descriptions, weighing the merits of adding more semantic fields to App Store pages, and supporting a separate review process for metadata-only updates. They talk about Apple’s rejection of apps using Rollout.io technologies, and larger risks of depending on any 3rd party binaries or open source. Finally they consider the power of assuming certain labels such as “entrepreneur,” and how it frames your business thinking moving forward.
