Amazon Dodge's Apple's App Store Policy With New Cloud Reader
Amazon has found a way around Apple's policies for purchasing content in its App Store, according to an article on AppleInsider.com. Changes to the Apple iOS terms required retailers to give Apple a 30-Percent cut of purchases made through Apple's App Store. Rather than comply, many retailers, including Amazon, chose to remove their purchase links entirely. Now, Amazon has released the Kindle Cloud Reader, a Web application that runs in a browser, featuring links that enable users to buy and download new books directly from the Web application, effectively dodging Apple's App Store and its in-app purchase policy.
