Epic Games isn't alone in its fight against Apple and Google's app store policies: On Thursday, the nonprofit Coalition for App Fairness launched with other vocal anti-Apple critics, including Spotify, Basecamp, Tile and Match Group, which owns Tinder and Hinge.
The goal of the group is to make sure app stores don't "abuse the control they enjoy" and advocate for a more level playing field.
