People in these parts honestly believe Android is a hospitable business environment, but if your business involves selling things, you have to content yourself with a tiny fraction of iOS's revenue potential. That's why these guys aren't pivoting. Their business wouldn't have existed in 2011 without iOS.
edit: i've had a couple minutes to try using it.
You may want to consider overhauling the application's user experience. It doesn't look or 'feel' like a proper iOS app, and I'm guessing that's why the Android version is outselling the iOS one.
* the icons really need @2x variants.
* The user workflow is brittle, especially given how few view controllers there are, here. I shouldn't be able to choose to look at the 'Web' or 'Social' tabs until I've selected a domain.
* The domain entry experience feels cumbersome. Why is it capitalizing my domain name?
* Why do I delete a domain from the 'Web' and 'Social' tabs, and why isn't there an alert prompt?
* The navigation bar tint color shouldn't change.
* This should be a modal view controller.
* The text shadow behind the label looks weird.
* The label's text should be something more like: "Domain name:", especially since you already give an example in the text field with its placeholder.
* You should call -becomeFirstResponder on the text field when this view controller appears.
Anyway, I know you didn't ask for any of this, but hopefully it proves helpful in driving up your sales.
I am aware it doesn't have the best design/UI right now, but that will soon be corrected in the next release - at least most of your suggestions anyways.
I guess your target market is the tech savvy crowd who are often put off by the iOS closed platform.
A large portion of what Apple does that's specifically targeted at developers these days is negative. The NDA, rules so broken they were never consistently enforced, arbitrary rejections, retroactively rejecting apps when they decide to come out with a competitor, etc.
Also, I dispute the claim that this rule change was "entirely predictable." Can you show me somewhere that you or anybody else predicted this rule change before it came to light?
Theres plenty of ebook stores that do well on Android.. Kindle, Aldiko, & Nook all do well and I use all of them when there are deals, just like I use the Amazon and Google marketplace. When deals appear on apps/books I like, I buy. The content is more valuable than the actual reader.
On webOS (myself, wife, daughter) I had the option of requiring a password every time an app was purchased or just letting my 13 year old daughter rack up whatever credit card charges she felt like on her phone. I don't consider it a PITA to enter a password, I consider it a security feature. I am shocked that you imply that android does not have such a requirement and I feel further vindicated in choosing webOS over android.
