ProtonMail vs Apple

One thing that seems to be missing in this discussion is the point of view of the “client”, the one who downloads the app and pays for it. I agree that the hoops one has to go through to get an app in the Apple store are a big pain, and that it seems unfair for Apple to get a cut of online advertising. But, does the end user care? 

I code in Livecode and always curse and struggle to get an app to load onto my phone. I also sympathize with the seemingly constant changes to Apple's requirements. But, as a user of iPhone apps, I really appreciate Apple’s attention to privacy and security. Would I sacrifice the user oriented qualities for the developer hassles? Probably not, at least with out a lot of other info about how Apple’s hoops for developers impact the user side for me. But I would find it unacceptable to sacrifice security and privacy.
