Underscore David Smith did a great miniseries in his great podcast on practical, plausible ideas for improving the App Store, then wrote up his ideas here.
I agree with almost everything. I don’t have high hopes for any of these changes, though.
Apple has shown, by consistent inaction over the last six years, that they simply aren’t interested in putting substantial effort into improving the App Store. It’s just not a priority. They’ll do the bare minimum to keep it working, and not much more.
And I think they’re committing a massive long-term strategic error.
