The advantages of this mechanism are as follows.

  • AndroidTougher than JapanMobile phonePreliminary examination is simple compared to listing in, and no prior negotiation is required at the planning stage[21].
  • Many foreign-made apps also enter the Japanese market, but you can sell without thinking about differences in phones and systems other than the already saturated Japanese market.[22].

The problems and complaints are as follows.

  • There is a limit of "up to 1,000 In App Purchase items",E-bookThere are many restrictions for apps[23].. The number of items has been increased to 2010 in June 6 and 3,000 in June 2012.

From around February 2010, application selection (examination criteria) became strict, and sexual content was included.[8], Applications with technical problems, such as using private APIs, have disappeared from the App Store.Also, in 2021, the introduction of the "App Tracking Transparency" (ATT) prompt was mandated, so about 42 apps that refused to be introduced have been deleted from the store.[31].

Trademark or common noun

AmazonIn November 2011,AndroidForAmazon Appstore for AndroidWhen Apple launched the service, Apple claimed trademark infringement, and Amazon said, "app storeSought a court order banning the use of the term "as the name of an application portal. On the other hand, the Amazon sideapp store”Was a common noun[32].

In July of the same year, a US federal court dismissed Apple's request.However, the ruling is based solely on the reason that Apple has "not demonstrated the potential for confusion with various competing brands."app storeDoes not agree with Amazon's allegations that it is a purely general term.[33].

Pirated sales problem

    It should be strongly suspected that it is provided by anyone other than the author or publisher, and no explicit copyright infringement has been checked despite pre-examination (such as violence or sexuality) of the content of the application, Even if infringement is discovered, it is not deleted and pirated editions continue to be sold, the deletion request window and the deletion procedure are not disclosed, the sales data is not disclosed despite direct profits from illegal distribution, etc. , And strongly denounces it as "helping illegal activities and inevitably determining that it is illegal in itself".[36].

  • On December 2012, 12, a group of eight Chinese writers and two companies sought damages of 28 million yuan for the sale of pirated copies on the App Store. It ruled that Apple would be ordered to pay 8 million yuan in damages for selling the work."I'm disappointed with the decision. Some writers get only 2 yuan. The decision is a signal that encourages pirated editions," a group spokeswoman said. Apple has taken allegations of piracy "very seriously," said spokeswoman Caroline Wu.
