- Apple threatens 'stick rapp' phoneys throw from the App Store. According to the iPhone maker is the app violates the rules of the virtual store. Developer Adam Howell week had time to change his iMessage stickers. If he does not, Apple knikkert his app from the App Store.
According to Howell, Apple has approached him about his phoneys app that allows iOS users fake iMessage messages could be sent to others. Since iOS 10 it is possible for appmakers to make so-called stickers for iMessage. Where most of the stickers consist of smileys, Howell has chosen to shape the stickers as iMessages, but with a teasing content. A funny idea, but that it violates a number of App Store rules.
Developers must meet certain conditions to get their stick Climber in the App Store. Thus, it is forbidden to make stickers to 'chat bubbles iMessage 'appear, stickers may not consist of blue or green' bubbles', Apple's font San Francisco should not be used and the app should not aim to others for to fool. Because Howell with phoneys already violates these rules, do not surprise him that Apple made contact with him.
Howell does not yet know what he will do with phoneys. Because pretty much have the whole app on the shovel, he chooses possible for Apple to remove the app.
