Apple changes to App Store rules 'very little' - Basecamp CTO

Basecamp CTO David Heinemeier Hansson insisted on Tuesday that changes announced by Apple following the complaints of his company over App Store rules amounted to "very little."

"What they've given out is actually so far very little. Apple has said that you can appeal to Apple if you want Apple to investigate Apple," Hansson told CNBC. The move from Apple represents a good first step towards reforms in the marketplace, he said, but expressed concern the announced change would not be enough.

Previously, Apple said that it will allow developers to “challenge” its App Store rules, adding that it allowed software update for Basecamp's new email app, Hey. Apple had originally threatened to remove Hey app, unless the developer implemented in-app purchases that would give Apple a 30% cut of the revenue.
