Adobe takes 10 percent haul from Director 12-built apps
Wednesday, February 13, 2013 @ 4:42pm

Adobe is now claiming a 10 percent cut of earnings over $20,000 from any iOS app made with Director 12, reports say. The demand can be found in the end-user license agreement for the software. 12 is the first version of Director to support publishing apps directly to iOS, including converting existing titles.



For some developers such an arrangement could be a serious issue. Apple already claims 30 percent from any App Store transaction revenue, even in-app purchases. With an extra 10 percent gone, smaller-scale developers might not be able to financially justify their projects. There are, however, a number of iOS programming tools that don't involve extra royalty payments.
