Just ahead of Apple's World-Wide Developer Conference, the company is getting a lot of heat about their app store fees.
DHH@dhhApple doubles down on their rejection of HEY in the App Store, but adds some spice to it at the end: YOU UNGRATEFUL PEASANTS! No mention of how Basecamp differs, how Gmail differs, how Outlook differs, how Fastmail differs. Just more edicts from the monopoly king! twitter.com/DylanByers/sta…20:51 PM - 18 Jun 2020Dylan Byers @DylanByers#Break: APPLE has sent an email to Basecamp founder and CEO @jasonfried in which it stands by its decision to reject the “Hey Email” app. Apple shared the email, which is signed by the "App Review Board," with @NBCNews (below).

TLDR: The Basecamp folks are being loud about their treatment under App Store rules and Apple's attempts to earn 30% fees. These rules more or less date back to the inception of the app store, and somehow Apple has avoided much scrutiny in the matter.
Nobody is better at causing a fuss about this kind of stuff than DHH and Basecamp.
How do you predict this will shake out?
