Adobe Wants 10 Percent Royalty on iOS Games Developed With Director 12

Adobe logo

Adobe recently released Director 12. It has tools that let people develop iOS apps, and publish directly to the App Store.

Here’s the problem. Adobe wants 10 percent of royalties made for each app. The good news is that royalty payment only comes once the app has made $20,000 in the App Store. Maybe that sounds okay at first, because you used the software. Here’s the real problem: You already paid $999 for the license. You paid a grand to buy the software and a license to use it. Now they want a cut, too? Think about that for a second. That would be pretty much like making an album in Logic Pro and Apple wanting money for the sales made on Band Camp or CD Baby.
