So…I just read this fascinating article from Buzzfeed News about how developers in India want to build an alternative App Store to fight Google Play’s 30% transaction tax. It’s a very relevant story to the readership of this site given recent events, so i’m sharing it here. There is also a link to TechCrunch’s story on this, which is also interesting.

Unlike in most other countries, Google’s Android has an actual monopoly in the mobile market with 99% marketshare in India.
