Are you an iOS app developer who sold an app or in-app digital product through Apple's App Store?

Our firm is seeking information from developers like you about your App Store experience. Fill out the form to find out more »

ABOUT THE INVESTIGATION

Our legal team is working with developers like you to find out more about their experience selling their apps and digital products in the iOS App Store, including with respect to Apple’s potentially restrictive practices and distribution fees.

Every day, app developers bring their hard work and creativity to the iOS App Store with the hope of fairly monetizing their creation. But developers may face difficult challenges in using the App Store in a fair manner. We want to help ensure that Apple is playing by the rules and giving iOS app developers every chance to succeed, and not taking advantage of them.

YOUR RIGHTS

We believe that developers who work hard to design, build, and sell their own apps and in-app digital products in app stores should not be harmed by unfair or anti-competitive behavior from big tech companies. Our legal team is investigating your rights pertaining to the distribution of iOS apps and in-app digital products through the App Store.
