  • 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…

  • iekei wrote: » The only way to fix it is to have humans properly reject inappropriate metadata. Yes i agree, but Apple's continual creation of new rules based on minutiae, is a problem. Banning the word Free is just silly.

  • iekei wrote: » If "free" was in front or after the app name, then "free" wasn't really the app name. It's a keyword or descriptor. That reasoning is absurd, unless you live in Apple land. A title is a title is a title. Example: Red D…
