Michael do you know what Apple's cut is for in app subscriptions?

I couldn't help myself. I've found I don't have nearly as many chances to use lmgtfy.com as I thought I would when I discovered it.
But yeah, Google's rates are the same as Apple, which is why Google's One Pass thing was supposed to be so awesome for publishers, because that had just a 10% fee for subscriptions, but it seems that idea died because it hasn't been mentioned since it was announced last year.

If google wants to get really aggressive and ignite some more interest in the android development community they should drop their cut to 20-25% Give developers a solid financial reason to pick android over iOS. With that I'd expect more higher quality apps being produced. Whether or not iOS apps are more functional they do tend to have a more polished look (for the most part).
