Why doesn't the Kotlin team consider developing an open-source app store where developers can publish their apps without any fear? "The Uncertain World of App Development on the Google Play Store" In the ever-evolving landscape of #appdevelopment, one minute can make or break your career. The Google Play Store, once a promising platform for developers, has become a source of uncertainty and frustration. Imagine waking up one day to find your Google Play Developer account terminated, without any prior warning or notification. Your hard work and dedication, spanning years, suddenly rendered meaningless. This is the reality many developers face, and it's time to shed light on the challenges we encounter. Emotional turmoil is part and parcel of this journey. It's the feeling of being held hostage to policy changes that seem to occur daily, with no clear communication or guidance. The frustration of not knowing what you did wrong, only to be told vaguely about "collecting data" and "multiple violations." Let's be clear: developers are not the villains here. We are passionate creators who strive to provide valuable services to users worldwide. We navigate a minefield of constantly shifting policies, hoping not to step on the wrong one, but it's a daunting task. The fear of the unknown looms large. Every day, we wake up afraid that our hard work will be wiped away, that our livelihoods will be destroyed with the click of a button. The stress of walking on eggshells, wondering if we'll be the next target, is taking a toll on our mental and emotional well-being. We seek transparency, fairness, and a chance to defend our work. We urge Google to reconsider its approach and provide developers with clear, specific feedback when issues arise. We want a dialogue, not emotional blackmail. It's time to address these concerns and create a more collaborative and supportive environment for app developers. Our livelihoods and careers hang in the balance, and together, we can find a way to make the Google Play Store a platform where innovation thrives, and #developers can build with confidence.
