It reminds me when the first wave of Windows -> Mac OS X ports hit, and it was the same Windows layout, just with Aqua buttons. And all the third parties were like "Well we made it look Mac what more do you want?"

Just had this conversation with someone this weekend re Marzipan blogs. Downside of the Mac being built to make your subconscious happy. Old HIG docs spelled out the subtleties out and why they mattered in academic terms. Now it's "Button looks like NSButton it's Mac now!"

Things about selling directly, that I had forgotten.
1. Immediate sale notifications
2. 5% Credit Card fee vs 35% App Store tax
Its nice. https://t.co/DOHXojATXP

You think the reason iOS devs haven't written AppKit versions is that AppKit is "hard". Nope. It's money. If there was sufficient money to be made, the AppKit apps would get written. But there isn't. iOS devs are mainly working on a business model of low price and volume.

"We welcome the competition", some AppKit devs might say. But do you welcome the prices? You can't make it up in volume on the Mac. The only reason the Mac has been worth developing for all these years is the relatively high app prices.

Well made Mac apps priced fairly will have to compete with free iPhone apps with little if any thought put into working on the Mac. It's easy to see where this is going, and well made apps aren't going to win.

It seems unlikely that Marzipan developers would be able or willing to take advantage of higher Mac app prices. Instead, the Mac suddenly gets a flood of low-price, low-effort ports of iOS app. Accelerating the race to the bottom on the Mac.

iOS devs want low-effort Mac ports of their apps. But how much are they going to charge for those ports? Surely they won't charge *more* $ for a low-effort "half-native" Mac port than for their fully native iOS app. Who would even pay that much for a low-effort port?

Really excited to see Mac app prices race towards $0. It's going to be great for the platform. We'll have an endless supply of blindingly white free apps designed for a 6" screen! So excited!

Ideally you’d be able to charge users for each extra platform they wanted to use your app on. Buy on iPhone, have add-on options for iPad and Mac use. Buy on Mac have options for iPad and iPhone etc. Of course what they’ll actually do is nothing and say use subscriptions.

If the Mac experience becomes like all the other platforms (not saying it will), I don't have to wait for a Mac Pro. I'll go out and buy a Windows box and get the same experience.

I think there are those that hope if the Mac experience ceases to be, I'll move to iPad. I won't.

It's scared me off even thinking of what, if any, Mac I'll get when my good old 2013 MBA dies. I'm sitting out at *least* until the next rev. MacBook hardware's weakness of late has made me put much more thought to the idea of jumping over to iOS (I like the Smart Keyboard).

Any discussion of Marzipan that doesn't mention app prices and revenue is missing the big picture for developers.

I can't understand how it's been FOUR YEARS since they started shipping these keyboards. It has scared me off recommending MacBooks of any kind even to those who need them

A new Android developer is starting today at the company I’m contracting at; A new MBP was waiting for him on his desk.
His very first question: “Is this the model with the bloody useless keyboard?”

I think one possible outcome here is that if developer prove out their audiences on the Mac, they end up migrating to AppKit to use more native Mac features as part of a competition with each other.

Or existing AppKit developers start stealing their customers.

DiskImageMounter uses 100% CPU while displaying an EULA. And why is the EULA window displayed in Korean? The Print and Save sheets aren't localized in Korean. Why do the Print and Save buttons draw black text on blue while the sheet is animating into position?

The News icon zooming in on the N reminds me of the evolution of the Starbucks logo where the mermaid’s face just gets closer and closer. I assume the next Apple News icon will just be a single, red slash. pic.twitter.com/4xAWcB7bQB

It’s not just that Apple mangled the News icon with a white background and a bulge, it’s that no one on the team or any design leaders *realized* they had mangled it. And that’s the more serious problem. pic.twitter.com/F0gjnCqL3r
