Submission + - Developer blames Apple for ruining eBook business (

An anonymous reader writes: A bookseller and app developer has blamed Apple for writing its final chapter, claiming the iPad maker had pushed it out of business. “Apple has made it completely impossible for anyone but Apple to make a profit selling contemporary ebooks on any iOS device,” BeamItDown said. "We bet everything on Apple and iOS and then Apple killed us by changing the rules in the middle of the game.” The company blamed Apple's decision to impose a 30% commission on books sold through apps for the unhappy ending.
