  • Just wondering what app it was? (no harm saying now that its gone?) what type of app got removed? Was this a legit app? was it something that was still 32bit? someone claimed infringement on? something that was skinned? or are they just randomly rem…

  • Hoping we find out something today. Looks like I still need to update 2 apps for 64bit but would like to keep the small amount of reviews I have.
  • Kinda sucks for all the people that just updated apps to be compliant with iOS 11. Are they saying we will have an option to show all reviews or just reset?
  • Really not looking forward to this why would apple do this. Do they really want 99% of the apps on the store to have black boxes when the iPhone x ships? Can anyone post a screen of the simulator showing what the boxes will look like if you don…

  • > @notnak said: > Drop the reskinning business. It's over. Wow if they are really cracking down on redlining like it looks like this is great news for actual indie devs and customers.
  • Would be interested to see what apps you have in the App Store and what's being rejected. Looks like they might be cracking down on spammers / reskinners from the looks of it on the apple forums.
  • Yea the sad thing is Apple is so slow to react and so slow inconsistant to give a clear answer on what's right or wrong that Devs actually benefited from the long titles. Everyone was doing it I believe something like 20 out of the top 100 free apps…
  • Congrats on those 8 year anniversary! I've been asking for this limit on every forum and in every feedback review I've gotten from Apple for years! Glad to see they listened although I wouldn't mind seeing it at 30 characters. Your title shoul…
  • So this might be a dumb question but Ive never used anything but vungle for ads. Is admob just a framework to get ads or do they actually serve ads too? if so how would i get started with admob?
  • I make a living on the AppStore but I've been at it for about 3-4 years and I have those downloads to bring my apps to the top of searches. There's no way I could start now and make a living too much junk on the store to gain any visibility.
  • While this might not totally carry over ive found that offering incentivized ads in games is the best way to go. On top of this I dont offer them until about 1 hour into progress. What I mean by this is a player will have to play the game for abo…

  • Idk i really dont think its a glitch just the end of indie games getting exposure.
  • Im working on a version of my rpg that should be perfect for the watch (in my eyes much better than the current "featured" offers). Anyways its been somewhat of a pain in the ass to work with since theres not a ton of code for it and most of the cod…
  • Today is day 16 waiting for review. This is getting crazy apple come on...
  • Been waiting 11 days for an update that has an apple watch feature. You'd think they might push those to the front but that's clearly not happening.
  • yea still waiting here as well. Seems like I am late to the party for everything (seems like i wont ever be getting a watch to test on either)

  • Im not sure if it is true about updating apps to gain keyword rankings but it just seems to me like the easiest way to do this would be to give higher rankings for apps ready for ios 8 & 7 and lower for anything less than that. Maybe even lower …

  • I guess I am a little bias because i write everything in objective-c and moving crap to andriod would not only be learning a whole new develpment envoirment but learning a new lang and rewriting everything. You guys with app builders got it good hah…
  • Went and tried on the watch yesterday. There was some real excitement at the store. Although i have no plans of wearing one they really were not too bad.
  • ordered my watch a bit late now i have to wait til june haha. I got the smaller watch figuring it would be more accurate to test on seeing if it looks good on the small it will look good on the big one but maybe not the other way around.

  • @C6Silver05 I'm not sure I agree with you there. I don't think a simple $100 fee per app after your first app would hurt creativity at all. If anything I think it would force actual developers to spend a bit more time making the app the best t…

  • Going on 20 hours now and I still can't see it on the store before this the longest I've waited is about 5 hours. The weird thing is it would normally say it's not available on the App Store. With this app is says it's not available in the US App St…
  • If they just charged a yearly fee to keep apps on the store they wouldn't have to worry about spam and the App Store would be better for everyone (users, developers & apple). As for your rankings dropping it could be that there are now mor…
  • Passed review after 10 days waiting and 15mins in review. The weird thing is that the app is not showing on the store 8 hours after I got the email saying it's now ready for sale.
  • Going on 10 days for a new app review and I only assume it's going to get longer since they are now accepting watch apps. Apple use some of your money and hire more reviewers 10+ days is not ok...
  • This makes sense tbh and its how I price my apps. If you think about it theres less competition and less demand so paid makes sense for niche. The funny thing is you have a lot better chance of making the charts even as a paid game because everyone …

  • I'm just relieved my account wasn't compromised. The first thing I thought when I couldn't log in and I was like ohh shit. Who do I call to get my account locked down before my apps get transferred or removed.
  • After an 8 day wait I had a update go into review. It was however rejected because they couldn't find ads. you don't see ads until you are level 10 which takes about 10mins of playing (much to long to spend reviewing for an update that spent 8 days …
