Facebook and Apple can’t agree on terms, so Facebook’s subscription tool will only launch on Android phones


Thanks Apple. Facebook (and I'll be purposefully naive here) tries to help publishers make some money through putting 100% of the sale through to them, and Apple won't have it. Apple of course want their 30%. Facebook pulls out.

Thanks Apple.

Meanwhile Google are going to try to help news orgs get new subs by handing those it thinks are easy prey over, and taking a small cut.
