Apple may have a horde of unhappy developers to placate in the near future. Evans Data Corporation has just completed a survey which found that 80% of American developers are unhappy with their cut of the profits. TechEye reports that nearly 50% of the 400 person survey believes that Apple only deserves a 10% cut.

Currently, App Store profits are split 70/30, with the majority going to the developer. Most other App Stores have followed Apple's lead. The survey also found that App Stores are a preferred distribution model for only 15% of developers. More than half prefer direct sales. 70% are against price-fixing, while 50% are angry about content restriction.
