1Password on the Mac App Store « Macdrifter
"Apple may be happy to have the nerds along for the ride, but they are not their target market. Normal people that just want to use a few apps and don’t care about tweaking their experience are Apple’s new target demographic."
It’s fascinating that the sandboxing problematic, plus iCloud, makes things so obvious. Developers leave the App Store behind to have enough freedom developing apps with “power”.
Software Ambiance, the developers behind Daisy Disk, recently wrote:
"In 2011 everyone wanted MAS versions of their apps. In 2012 users prefer to migrate from the app store."
I still stand by my previous statement that Apple is working on fixing the sandbox though.
