Radio and TV stations that want me to install their app to see their content (hey guys, I have this thing, it's called a web browser, why don't you just make your damn web site work - as bad as your web site is, why would I want an app from you?). "Musicians" who want to make their music an app (hey, I have this thing, it's called a media player, and it lets me set up MANY songs to listen to as I commute. Your "app" won't be one of them!)
Oh, I forget myself - this isn't about my wants and needs; it's about the wants and needs of advertisers.
