We’ve endured a decade of not having much of a voice except to vote with our feet and credit card. If an app sucks, we review accordingly. But what if an application dies on the vine and becomes abandonware? What if an app is over priced? We still can vote with our feet and money, but we don’t have much of a voice that either Apple or app developers can hear.
How about an app user union? Uh huh. A collective customer union. We could have dues, t-shirts, meetings, a logo and a website with forums. Union members would be able to voice their opinions about a specific application, and specific forum threads would be forwarded to developers so they can see– from one location and from very vocal customers– exactly what they’re doing right and wrong. Though, as unions, humanity, and megaphones tend to do– mostly the wrong.
