I’m really glad Apple put Xcode in the Mac App Store. I like getting delta
updates for such a huge app.
I’d like it even more if Apple created a place in the Mac App Store for
registered iOS developers where we could get delta updates
for betas from the App Store as soon as they’re released, rather than
downloading another 2GB installer. The App Store has all the information it
needs – you sign in with your Apple ID, which is what identifies you as a
developer. Aside from being more convenient for developers, this would take
some of the load off Apple’s servers, too, right?
And while we’re on the subject of being a developer – I’d like to be able to
search iTunes any time for developer-only content, like the WWDC videos. Same
applies here – I’m already signed in to iTunes with my Apple ID which is also
my developer account, so they know I’m a developer. So why can’t I just search
for developer content?
Someday, maybe. Someday.
