Any enterprise is aware of the largest downside with speedy enterprise growth is scale; as an organization’s enterprise grows, it’ll face a spread of unintended penalties. One among these generally is a stealthy scourge of rip-off apps being bought at app shops, together with Apple’s personal.

We didn’t see this coming

Did we see this coming? In fact we did.

Forged your thoughts again to the early days of the App Retailer and you could recall the “I Am Wealthy” app, which price $999.99 and did nearly exactly nothing. It consisted of a glowing purple button and an icon which displayed the phrases:

“I’m wealthy

I deserv it

I’m good,

wholesome & profitable.”

Eight individuals bought the app earlier than Apple eliminated it from the shop after Dan Frommer known as it “a joke that smells like a scammy rip-off” whereas Brian X. Chen stated those that spent their cash on it proved themselves to be jerks.

Whereas two individuals acquired refunds, six individuals held onto the app — so a minimum of some individuals truly preferred the chutzpah. 

That was then, then when there have been just a few hundred thousand iPhones. Now there’s greater than a billion in use. That would imply large enterprise for a profitable rip-off, whilst customers turn out to be extra accustomed to subscription-based companies.
