MacVoices #20087: Paul Kafasis On Combining (Or Not) Mac and iOS App Licensing

Paul Kafasis of Rogue Amoeba helps us examine the subject of combining licenses for iOS and Mac apps. The development of Mac apps through Catalyst isn’t quite as easy as Apple made out, especially if a developer wants to optimize for the Mac platform. Paul discusses the concept from the developer side, contemplating both pricing and the programming involved, what the motivations for both developer and consumer are, and the effect it could have on app purchases. We also find out about Rogue Amoeba’s Status Report, and have a brief discussion about iOS jailbreaking.
