Even though the new App Store design has shown sign of greatly improved app downloads, still, a group of more than 130 App Store developers called themselves as Developer Union, today sent an open letter to Apple asking the company to launch free trials for apps and a more reasonable cut of revenues, reports Wired


Its main goal is to ask Apple to implement free trial for iOS and Mac apps by July of this year. The Developers Alliance stated app creators who make great software should be able to rely on these apps to live a normal life. Indeed, the free trial feature allows users to better experience the App and facilitate the final purchase.

We believe that people who create great software should be able to make a living doing it. So we created The Developers Union to advocate for sustainability in the App Store.

Today, we are asking Apple to commit to allowing free trials for all apps in the App Stores by the tenth anniversary of the App Store this July. After that, we'll start advocating for a more reasonable revenue cut and other community-driven, developer-friendly changes.

The Developers Union said that it plans to acquire 20,000 members by early June. Developers have been wanting free trials for Mac and iOS App Store for many years, but Apple has not yet launched. The developer alliance hopes to persuade Apple to provide free trial features to all applications, not just those that provide subscription-based.
