App Store Perils
Despite its undeniable convenience, I dislike Apple’s “App Store” for several reasons. The first is that Apple uses it to make developers dance to whatever tune Apple is playing that day. (This is part of their general philosophy of totalitarian control of everything, everywhere.) As a former developer myself, my attitude is “Screw them.”
But the other reason is that it sometimes breaks, and then the recovery mechanism is utterly opaque. Case in point.
This was the fourth time I downloaded 1.20 GB of Garageband content only to receive this useful message:
I don’t know who the intern was who coded this feature into the App Store, but they should have run this diagnostic message past someone who can speak English.
