Adobe has backpedaled on its royalty program for App Store titles created using the company's Director 12 publishing utility. The previous licensing agreement forced developers to pay Adobe a 10-percent cut of all App Store earnings over $20,000 for apps created or published through Director 12.

The royalty demands have been criticized by developers, who already forfeit to Apple 30 percent of revenue from app sales and in-app purchases. The extra fees were viewed as a potential hurdle to establishing profitability for many smaller-scale developers, and a reason for developers to choose publishing tools that do not demand royalties.

"Since launching Director 12 in February, Adobe conducted detailed conversations with members of the community to understand concerns with the licensing model," Adobe said in a statement to 9to5Mac. "After analyzing all viewpoints, we decided to allow users to publish to iOS without registration or royalty fees on earned income."

Adobe's Director 12 website still says "Additional Fees Apply," however the website is expected to be changed to follow the revised licensing agreement.
