What Does This Do To The App Store Space?

Comes under the category of "Why didn't I think of that?".

Doesn't it seem antiquated that we need to go to a separate site to use an app?

What happens to the control that the iTunes and Google Play have?

1App allows apps to bypass the app store to get users to download. They cut out the middleman (app store).

The Menlo Park, California-based startup has taken the disruptive cloud-streaming technology and applied it to the problem of app discovery. Now you can use 1App’s OneOS to instantly deliver a mobile app to someone who wants to try it out.

Raheel Hasan, CEO of 1App, said in an interview with VentureBeat that 1App can stream a full app experience to any device in any mobile environment. You could play an Android game on an iPhone if you wanted to, with no waiting and now no need to bother with stores or downloads.

The question is...who gets the data now?   

Will apps need to place their app in the app stores?
Can this be the new way to get an app on a device?
What percentage of the revenue will 1App get versus who places the app ad?
What will this do to Apple's 30% cut on app subscriptions? 
Has 1App found a way over Apple's walled garden?
