Views on this matter. The reason is that Apple removed a game called fortress night developed by Epic Games from the app store. Sweeney said the lawsuit had nothing to do with money. More importantly, epic’s fight is to “fight for basic freedom for all consumers and developers.” < / P > < p > “at the most basic level, we’re fighting for the freedom of choosing the source to install apps for users who buy smartphones, the freedom to publish apps for developers, and the freedom for users and developers to interact directly to conduct business,” Sweeney wrote on twitter. “The main negative argument is: ‘smartphone manufacturers can do whatever they want.’ This is a terrible point of view. We all have rights, and we need to defend our rights and fight anyone who denies them. Even if it means fighting against a favorite company like apple. ” Yesterday, epic orchestrated a public speech designed to highlight Apple’s alleged monopoly. Epic questions Apple’s operation of the app store, disagrees with the rules that prohibit developers from using third-party payment systems (which can prevent app stores from charging a 30% share) and restrictions that prohibit developers from publishing software directly to consumers. < / P > < p > friction arose when epic deployed its own payment system in IOS and Android versions of Fortress night. After Apple (and then Google) pulled the app off the shelves for violating developer rules, epic launched a massive social media campaign on “freefronite,” filed a 62 page complaint against apple, and posted a video in youtube and fortress night games, mimicking Apple’s well-known “1984” Macintosh ad.
