Why Apple Inc. (AAPL) Rejects Most Apps from Developers?


Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) has disclosed some of the reasons for which it does not accept apps from developers for its devices. PCMag.com’s editor-in-chief, Dan Costa, elaborated on CNBC earlier today about some of the issues outlined by the company. Many developers have been complaining that Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) rejects their apps without explaining their reasons. Well, even though Apple doesn’t plan to explain to each developer personally why their app was rejected, at least now they know the reasons for which many apps are rejected.

Among the main issues specified by the company, Mr. Costa mentioned that some of them are very general and related to ‘paperwork’. Some developers miss filling properly all of their forms, for example, while others might forget to include proper contact information. Other issues also include broken links, or some crashes and bugs identified by the company.

However, Mr. Costa also pointed out that Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) mentioned some issues that are more subjective and show how much control the company has over the content in its app store.  For example, if Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) finds the interface not satisfying for its iOS platform, it might reject the app. The company also cares about how personal data is used in the app, which, however, is an important issue of privacy. In addition, most apps that get rejected might have inappropriate ads placement, or an inaccurate description.
