App Store: quality control without the quality

posted by Jason Kottke   Feb 09, 2010

David Heinemeier Hansson has some thoughts on “quality control without the quality part” nature of Apple’s App Store.

In fact, lots of software has lower quality because of the App Store process. Developers can’t easily get bug fixes out and they certainly don’t release new versions as often as they otherwise would. This harks back to the era where software was really cumbersome to release on CDs, so you did it much less frequently.
