iPhone App Devs Miffed Over Late App Store Payments

Apple may have a hit on its hands with the App Store for iPhone and iPod touch applications, but some developers aren't happy and have threatened legal action over late and missing payments. Some developers are claiming that Apple has been unacceptably late with payments for application sales, and in other cases has failed to issue payments, according to TechCrunch.

Some developers have been complaining on public forums about payments for application sales that are months over due, and a lack of responsiveness from Apple when they request payment information. In some cases, the developers are claiming Apple owes them thousands of dollars.

Since public forums are an easy place to air complaints, it's not easy to tell how many developers are being impacted by the late payment issue. There could be just a handful of isolated problems, or hundreds of developers might be receiving late payments.

Regardless of the extent of the problem, the public complaints could turn some app developers away and push them into Google's Android development camp.

I’m well aware of Apple’s payment issues: they owe me around ?11,000 ($15,000) since January.

Their departments specifically for tax and *banking* issues are awesome (helpful emails within a couple of hours), but the people responsible for missing payments seem to be on a *long* holiday (no email replies: not even to say “we’re busy, but we’ll look into it”)

If only Apple were as nice to their developers as they are to the consumer: we are the people who got them to the one billion app download mark after all.
