Briefly Noted | Booksellers Alter App Sales – WSJ.com
Amazon and Barnes & Noble shoppers will be able to access their digital titles via the Kindle and Nook apps on their Apple devices, but in order to buy new titles, they will have to use the Safari Web browser and visit either www.amazon.com/kindlestore or www.nookbooks.com.
In February, Apple set new terms for companies wanting to sell digital content via its devices. It said such companies had to make their content available for sale via an app rather than through a link within the app to an outside website. As part of the change, Apple also said it would take 30% of each sale.
