Really. I shit you not.


I am appealing this rejection, but if they stand firm, I'm done with Apple. I'll ditch my iPhone and get something Android instead, and I'll pull Free42 from the App Store. Life is too short to waste time on supporting this kind of BS.

Pulling a wildly popular App with loyal supporters is the right thing to do, it's the only way to let Apple know how their new (or newly enforced) policy is being received.

Your letter to Cook is excellent, but I would not expect a positive reply. These days innovation at Apple seems to center around what outfit the execs will wear at the next big event; hey, if it worked for Jobs why not them too.

Draconian policies that punish loyal developers seems to be a time-honored tradition at Apple; this is the latest, but surely not the last such event.
