App?

"business where you use your phone to order your coffee but take payment via contact-less credit card."

Isn't that something that could be handled adequately by a website? Then no appstore is involved, so no cut.

To me there seem to be too many things that want one to use an app unnecessarily, when a website will do just fine; I do, however, think email is a worthy exception - I'm prepared to use an app for email that connects to any email provider that supports IMAP, pop3, SMTP, rather than use webmail.
