Apple Goes Asshole Again

Apple now rejecting apps with Pebble Smartwatch support

SeaNav US has previously been approved by Apple with no problem, we have had Pebble support in SeaNav for nearly 2 years and there are no changes to our support for the Pebble in this version. What are Apple doing? Have they gone Apple Watch crazy? What can we do?

The fifth year of assholism.

2010: Apple bans Android magazine app

No mater how advanced iOS is over Android, and no matter how fantastic Apple’s own apps for it are, when Apple does something like this, it makes Android look like a no-brainer to get.

And it’s smug behavior like this that will eventually be the downfall of Apple, one way or another.

Same-day update:

We’ll see what happens.

    Apple risks losing several hundred million in fines to EU commission or court decisions as soon as somebody cares. Maybe also in the USA. Apple stores 150 billion cash for this purpose, it seems. As a company, I’d better use of money.

    Apple’s app policies are dubious in several respects. Spend months on writing an app only to find out that Apple finds a reason to reject it. This is how programmers, eh, earn their money.

    An equally great problem is serious bugs in iOS 8.x versions. After the missing file managers, this belongs to the second most important reason why I consider Apple devices over-priced. If I were Apple, I would invest 2 billion in bug fixes of iOS 8 alone. Steve Jobs knew what quality was – nowadays, Apple seems to start forgetting it.

    Apple watches that don’t run a whole day and cost as if they ran a week? Market is still ruled by demand – but for how long? When Apple will depend on supply again, it must rediscover quality before vanishing faster than rising.
