Customer Courtesy: What Mobile Developers Should Consider

Something that has been getting on my nerves lately is the missing of customer courtesy to their loyal buying fans. I've seen dozens of apps get released on the App Store at about $4.99, then the next day, they drop it to $2.99. What's the big idea here? I know lowering the price will act as an incentive, but are you just throwing the first-day buyers under the bus? Yeah, I think so. Most hardcore fans buy games the day of launch, but are burned the next day because the developer chose to drop the price.

I kinda wish this article dove more into the issue and perhaps attacked the devs at hand a bit more. It basically just glances upon one of the many problems of mobile developers and is scared to dig into it, in my opinion.

I think its a great point for one. However you have to look at mobile developers for what they are. Go find ANY interview with ANY mobile developer, mostly look for current console/PC developers that made mobile games. Its literally ALL about the money and nothing else. It's not about the effort, technology, or anything. It all boils down to "we made bank off it and love it!"

That reason alone is the reason something like this won't ever happen. Your getting ripped off? How sad, next buyer please! They see the app selling, thats all that matters to them. The market is so full of idiots that gobble up anything, that it doesn't matter if they "lose" a buyer.

Also prices a lowered so more people buy the app and the app stays on the featured area longer. Notice how prices drop really far just before Christmas? Its because Apple and the likes freeze their market and so on for the week, whoever gets there stays there.
