A decade on, Apple and Google's 30% app store cut looks pretty cheesy

" I still just grab mobile software from the Pirate Bay. A much more user friendly experience."

I don't like with app stores taking 30%, but seriously, what is user friendly about downloading it from piratebay?

-Get torrent or magnet ink

-Download unverified software.

-Unpack software.

-Scan software.

-Sideload software to phone.

- Install software

Or with an app store

- Tap Install

- Tap Open

I think they do win the user friendly argument. That doesn't mean it's worth 30%.
