Profound Stupidity, Round Three

Apple’s war on developers putting to use the new APIs in iOS 8 continues. Transmit for iOS doesn’t have a Notification Centre widget, but it does have a ridiculously powerful Share sheet extension. Or, well, did, because Apple has decided to neuter it by removing its send-to-iCloud Drive functionality.

The thing that PCalc, Drafts, and Transmit all have in common is that they’re power user tools. I’d wager heavily that their users are more likely to be longtime Apple supporters and very tech savvy. Never mind the silliness of going after developers who actually use the new APIs; the stupidity of taking on software used by Apple’s most ardent supporters is baffling to me.
