Another great iOS 8 feature crippled by capricious, unwritten, after-the-fact policies.
Again and again, I ask: What is Apple protecting itself or its customers from?
One hand isn’t talking to the other: engineering makes great features available to developers that could be used to build amazingly useful and powerful applications, then the App Store bans anything beyond their most trivial uses.
This sure feels like the ramifications of an internal turf war. I hope the higher-ups at Apple realize how important it is to resolve this quickly, because their devices, users, and developers are all suffering unnecessarily.
Imagine what great developers like Panic could do on iOS, and how much more powerful iOS devices would become, if Apple only stood their ground on policies that mattered.
