  • I don't think so. They may be able to generically see what Apple computer model you're using. But you can spoof that if you want to fool them. Why do you ask? Are you using a Hackintosh?

  • What is really bad about all this is once you get your first rejection based on Spam or Design, your developer account will be flagged. Future updates on other apps will most likely receive the same treatment. This makes it almost impossible to do…

  • Unfortunately, the whole review process as it stands today is nothing but a scam. When you try to update that 30 day app, the reviewer will come up with a bullshit excuse to NOT approve your latest version. And when pressed why not, they will ston…
  • If there's a way for Apple to F*ck you, they will... LOL...
  • Somewhere there is probably a magic button you have to push. Only Apple knows where it is. That website is very user unfriendly. Common sense is not their design. But they expect us to be perfect. Go figure.
  • Therein lies the problem. If you are a skilled developer, you should be able to debug your own work. Or learn how to do this by Googling, Reading, Studying etc. If you do not have these skills, then it is questionable whether or not you should …

  • The App Store Review process should be retitled to.... Rejections R' Us. It appears that they will use any reason to reject your app. Welcome to the new updated App Store... F*ck!

  • Do what Apple says... Track down the offending API and rename the method names or remove that API. Test your app to see of functionality has been compromised. If not, resubmit to the app store.
  • Tough times with the app review process. I am seeing the same things you all complain about. I suspect Apple is doing a weeding out process without telling the developers their intent. End result is that they are killing your livelihood.

  • I've seen this happen to others, and it's also happened to me. In my case I got paid the following month for two periods. Wasn't happy when it happened. Apple had no explanation for the glitch. But I did get paid... although a month too late.

  • jarv wrote: » can be green lines I do not like Green Lines and Spam. Seriously, you should just Google your problem. Or learn to debug your own work. Or offer to pay someone to tutor you in iOS programming. Just some friendly advice.
  • @SeanyK Yikes! Lets hope this is not a new trend. Welcome to the new People's Republic of Apple.

  • That can all be done easily using UIImage Animation, UIImageView, and Touches. There were quite a few tutorials back in 2009-10 describing how to do that. You don't need anything fancy to create such an app.

  • Here's that light at the end of the tunnel... the reason why Apple is killing all our old apps and kicking them back for a 30 day update. Apple wants all apps to be 64 Bit. 32 Bit legacy apps are being phased out of the app store. And soon, wil…
