iPhone Radio Apps Being Rejected by Apple
Now we all know that Apple’s App Store approval system is somewhat in a mess as evidenced by the recent male enhancement iPhone app even making it into the App Store, and now the word is Apple is rejecting single action radio apps.
According to an article over on Intomobile by Simon Sage, and by way of Radiomagonline, iPhone app developer DJBApps, has already submitted ten applications to the App Store and all have been rejected with Apple citing the developer agreement, section 2.20.
Section 2.20 is…“Developers ‘spamming’ the App Store with many versions of similar apps will be removed from the iOS Developer Program.”
Apparently the developer even made an appeal to iPhone guru Steve Jobs to which Jobs gave his usual short, sharp response…”Sorry, we’ve made our decision.”
Apparently the App Store has a spam issue and the thing is if the developer had put all the stations into a single app then maybe it wouldn’t have been rejected, but as with all things some do get caught up in the process of keeping spam apps out.
So basically Apple won’t allow single station radio apps onto the App Store, if you want your iPhone radio app on there your app has to have numerous radio stations in it to be accepted.
