Down Dog is being a very good witness for Epic.

If I were sitting in the jury box, I’d be very skeptical of Google’s anti-steering rules right now: Simon testified that 28 percent fewer incoming potential users decided to pay for his app at all after Google forced him to remove an in-app button that advertised a way to pay 33 percent less at his website.

“At first we just had to remove the 33 percent button ... they later made us remove some links from our website because we had some links in our app to a FAQ page,” he says.

“As a former Google employee, it was shocking to me ... Maybe it was a Google app review team employee who was making a mistake.”

Google is currently trying to destroy his credibility on cross-examination.
