Apple "The key takeaway we've reached (after two less than 24 hours playing with the iOS 7 Beta release) is this - every App must consider even basic updates to its UI to survive in a post-iOS 6 world." Great. Telling developers to update their entire application - user interface and behaviour alike - to target a look and behaviour that isn't final yet. Seems like potential for a lot of wasted work here.

Respectfully, it does not matter that $10bn or however much was paid out to developers. As a developer, I only care about how much *I* make.

That's understandable but if one is talking about the position or experience of the iOS developer community as a whole then that $10 billion sure makes a difference.

Operating systems change, occasionally in a quite radical step function. That's just how it is I think. Tedious for some, an opportunity for others, but progress nevertheless.

Silly statement. How much you make is up to you. If you are making nothing then that means people don't like what you are making.

Or it can also mean that the current mobile app distribution model only puts very few apps on the spotlight, at the expense of others which are so deeply hidden at the bottom of infinitely long lists that users do not even see them.
