The Verge: “On Apple’s App Store Improvements page, the company says: “We are implementing an ongoing process of evaluating apps, removing apps that no longer function as intended, don’t follow current review guidelines, or are outdated.” There isn’t a time stamp on the page, so it’s not immediately clear when Apple published or last updated the post.”
Nick, while I’m not upset about the removal of one of my apps, it doesn’t contain any ad frameworks or analytics of any kind.— Rob Fahrni (@Fahrni) April 24, 2022
It’s actually really simple, isn’t used by many, but is liked by those who do use it.
An update is in the works. I hope it’s allowed back in.
Earlier today on Twitter I replied to another iOS developer that I wasn’t upset about my app being removed from sale. I made it for myself and it works perfectly fine, thank you very much, but it doesn’t have a bunch of users. Folks that use it, seem to like it.
However, when I saw the paragraph from The Verge I pasted above, it kind of pissed me off.
Look, my app, Arrgly, isn’t pretty and doesn’t do much, but it works exactly as intended. Key here is “it works.”
When Apple says ”removing apps that no longer function as intended, don’t follow current review guidelines, or are outdated.” I wonder which of those Arrgly falls under? My guess is, it’s been deemed outdated? Outdated compared to what exactly?
Anywho, if you’re an Arrgly user I’m working on an update that makes it less goofy looking, but it will work the same as it ever did.
