Unmaintained Apps are Bad for the Platform

In my last post I wrote about removing some of my unmaintained apps from the App Store, giving a few reasons why I didn’t want such apps to be available.

Thomas Brand from Egg Freckles referred to those reasons, and added:

I can add one more. Unmaintained apps look bad for the platform. They fail to take advantage of the latest OS technologies, and provide an excuse for other developers who are dragging their feet supporting the latest Apple devices.

I totally agree.
