Speaking of the Goldman conference this morning, there was another nugget of information. Matthew Panzarino of The Next Web:
Apple CEO Tim Cook today announced that Apple had paid out $8B to developers, a number that displays an increase of $1B since the last time numbers were announced on January 13th. That displays a massive increase in acceleration for developer payouts.
That’s an insane increase in such a short amount of time. I wonder why.
Has Google ever announced this number for Android? It seems like a smart metric to play up if you want developers to focus on your platform…
