Today I’m forced to say goodbye to The Bat Player, my internet radio client, as it’s been rejected from Apple’s AppStore, and requires an update to continue working.
I wrote a bit about what led to today: https://gabekangas.com/blog/2020/08/apple-has-shut-down-the-bat-player/
@gabek :( that sucks man. The worst of it is, if you knew the right people at Apple I'm sure this would all get sorted out quickly? But if their escalation / appeals process isn't working... that sucks!
@gabek you wouldn't be the first dev I know to grind for years trying to do the right things jumping all their hoops and eventually "fuck Apple" and walk away from Apple dev completely.
@deafferret @gabek maybe, though the rejection seems of a kin to this: https://www.theverge.com/2020/8/6/21357771/apple-cloud-gaming-microsoft-xcloud-google-stadia-ios-app-store-guidelines-violations
If MS and Google can’t make it work, what chance does an indie dev have?
@gabek *pours one out for the Bat Player*
