iPhone app developer Loren Brichter is mad as hell. Why? Because Apple has alone the latest adaptation of his ablaze Twitter app, Tweetie. So what did Britcher do wrong? Well, nothing.
The problem, at atomic according to Brichter, is that Apple doesn’t like the profanity begin on the Twitter Trends allotment of the service, which displays items accepted on the micro-messaging service. Of course, Brichter has actually annihilation to do with that, as he doesn’t ascendancy what bodies cheep on Twitter. But Apple is allegedly adage it won’t accept the app until this profanity is gone — which, of course, is antic as there are several Twitter iPhone apps that use Twitter Trends data, and none of them accept been rejected. [Update below]
Brichter says on Twitter that he has let Apple apperceive about the added apps and is ambitious that all of them be pulled for ambiguous agreeable if Tweetie is. Probably not the best civil move, but a adventurous one that will force a accommodation from Apple. And I anticipate we all apperceive what the appropriate one is: Accepting Tweetie aback into the App Store.
If Apple thinks developers can or should clarify what bodies say on Twitter, it is of advance mistaken. And if it feels it can block all iPhone apps that use Twitter after such filters, again added ability to it, but that won’t go over able-bodied with iPhone users — at all.
If there’s any argent lining actuality so far, it’s that Apple at atomic beatific Brichter a account of what the botheration was with his app. As Brichter notes, this is abundant bigger than the aboriginal canicule of the App Store, back Apple would artlessly adios apps after adage why.
Update: Apple has now accustomed the new adaptation of Tweetie into the App Store.
