Android Magazine App Rejected by Apple
Well it’s not really that surprising but the word is Danish magazine publisher Mediaprovider who has an iPhone magazine in the App Store submitted an Android magazine, which was to be a counterpart to their iPhone magazine app, but Apple has rejected the Android version.
Although the Android app wasn’t expected to be popular with iOS users they submitted it anyway as a compliment to their iPhone magazine and on being rejected, Brad Dixon, the CEO of Mediaprovider contacted Apple and asked “So what’s the problem?”
An Apple rep known as Richard replied, “You know …your magazine. It’s just about Android…we can’t have that in our App Store.”
Now I can understand that Android is a rival to iOS, but doesn’t Apple allow other rivals in the App Store such as Skyfire and Opera being rivals to Safari, or could it simply be that Apple doesn’t want the iPhone faithful to be able to access an app which will show them what the Android OS is like and risk losing some of the iOS faithful?
