This article from @sarahintampa on @techcrunch has a nice roundup of what’s been happening.
The Mac App Store has had a bit of a torrid time in the last year or so with many high profile developers and companies leaving the store to head off on their own. However as @denzhadanov explains, this doesn’t mean that there isn’t still money to be made on the store.
