So then a store can’t decide what to host and what not to host?

Is Dick’s being sued for not selling AR rifles in their stores?

The apple app store is the only means through which developers can install an app on an Iphone. The app store enforces some rules, mostly related to standards of quality, stability and integration within the apple ecosystem. I disagree with them regulating apps based on moral or social standards.

Imagine if github started banning the repositories of a user because that user said distasteful things on national television.

Do you realize they, Github, have banned a user and his repository for posting emojis? So you’re argument proves my point.

You can’t force a business to sell crap. Alex can take his content to anywhere else and give it away just as easily.

No. It's about the fact you have no options to install or distribute anything on iPhone besides the app store or buying a developer license and building one yourself. That's monopolistic. Android you can install apps obtained outside the Play store so Google isn't doing the same thing. Microsoft wasn't doing the same thing as Apple either on their phones.

No its not monopolistic, that's called a brand. You always have android to turn to.

Monopolistic would be that apple is the only brand available, period. That's not the case here.
