Zuckerberg: Apple's app store worth checking out

Facebook Chairman Mark Zuckerberg (Mark Zuckerberg) said Tuesday that Apple has "one-sided control" over the app store, and said the platform is "worth checking out."

The CEO of the world's largest social media company made the aforementioned comments in an interview with Axios when asked about his position on the Apple App Store as a monopoly.

Zuckerberg told Axios, "Well, I totally think they have one-sided control over the phone in the app." He added, "I think people need to question the app store control. This really increases the dynamic competitiveness."

Then Zuckerberg compared the Apple app store with the Google Play store, praising Google for allowing it to download apps or side apps that were downloaded from other app stores.

Zuckerberg said: "If you do not have a Google Play Store account as a developer, you can still at least publish the app to the user's device." He added, "I think it is very important for people to create something this way and link it to the device."

However, the Facebook CEO did not say that the government should investigate the app store guidelines. But he said, "I think I'm probably not the right person to answer this question ... I think there are certain behaviors that will definitely raise questions. I think they deserve a review." ''

It's worth noting that this isn't the first time Zuckerberg put the company's app store online in August. Zuckerberg said: The App Store prevents innovation and competition and allows Apple to charge a "monopoly lease." These comments answer a question from an employee about the ongoing legal battle between Apple and Epic Games.

The spat between Apple and Epic Games began on August 13 when Epic Games released a version of the game ("Fortnite") on the App Store, which included a method that did not require Apple's usual 30% commission. Ways to pay for in-game content. Apple removed the app from the App Store, and Epic Games filed a lawsuit against Apple today.

On August 28, the company suspended accounts for Epic Games developers, escalating the battle and preventing the company from creating new apps or updating games (Fortnite) on the Apple platform.

Yesterday, Apple decided to take a step forward as the United States court was forced to hold Epic Games responsible for breach of contract and other allegations, tries to recover all payments that Fortnite has received through its payment system, and is seeking a permanent court action arrangement. Payment mechanisms are prohibited. It is external to all applications including games (Fortnite).
