MacBundler founder responds to accusations of withholding payment from developers
The founder of MacBundler, Dan Kingsley, has responded to accusations that his company was not paying developers participating in its bundle offerings of OS X software, claiming that all partner developers have paid in full. Kingsley claims that the source a of the trouble is a fraudulent bundle on Mightyloots.com, the issues with which he claims have been rectified.
However, according to MacNN, the issues with MacBundler go all the way back to 2014:
That developer, Mark Munz, says that after participating in a MacBundler promotion in April 2014, he did not receive payment, and was not contacted by MacBundler regarding any possible issues.
On the other hand, there are some developers who claim to have contacted MacBundler about these issues, though Kingsley says that he hasn't heard from many of them. Even when Kingsley has spoken to developers, it seems that issues still remain, as in the case of Corecode developer Julian Mayer:
Similar accusations have also been leveled against BundleCult, which supposedly distributed at least one game without an agreement with the developer, while also being accused of withholding payments.
