Epic Games CEO Tim Sweeney, during his speech at a South Korea conference, took more shots at both Apple and Google while also continuing to push his plan for one app store for all devices.
At The Coalition for App Fairness’s Global Conference on Mobile App Ecosystem Fairness, currently taking place in South Korea, Sweeney spoke at the conference, and also talked to the local press.
Bloomberg reports that Sweeney says he is working with developers and unspecified service providers to make an app store that would mean users could “buy software in one place, knowing that they’d have it on all devices and all platforms.”
Apple locks a billion users into one store and payment processor,” he said. “Now Apple complies with oppressive foreign laws, which surveil users and deprive them of political rights. But Apple is ignoring laws passed by Korea’s democracy. Apple must be stopped.”
Sweeny called Google “crazy” for its system of fees while praising South Korea for its new App Store law.
“I’m very proud to stand up against these monopolies with you,” he said. “I’m proud to stand with you and say I’m a Korean.”
