    It's not clear at this point why they did this though it does look deliberate. The thing is that all this really does is create user confusion.

    Contrast this with Apples efforts to get as many apps as possible in their store.

    For small companies and/or those with BYOD, the store allows a reasonably (not perfect) guard against malware and infected apps.

    Adobe is headed in that direction as well with the requirement to use the Adobe app manager. Of course it's only adobe.

    Mods: I intended to post this is in software, sorry
