Episode 278: A Little More Urgency

Manton and Daniel react to Apple allegedly using private API from Clips, and what it means for their App Store apps to enjoy special privileges. They talk about Daniel’s consideration of a freemium approach for the next major release of MarsEdit. Finally they examine Apple’s new TestFlight features, speculate about the cause for a looming iTunes Connect shutdown, and follow up about the efficacy of responding to App Store reviews.
