Subscription fatigue

David Sparks is skeptical of Apple’s embrace of app subscriptions:

We’ve been hearing for years how software as a service and subscription plans are the future. From the developer’s perspective, this gives them a steady stream of income and a basis from which to continue application development. I understand why developers want to move in this direction. However, in order for this to work there has to be participation from consumers. Frankly, I’m not so convinced that will happen.

It’s a really good question—what happens when everything you do on the Internet and every app you use wants to charge you a few dollars every month?
