I don’t generally call for anyone to be fired, but an App Store reviewer who cannot see how Ice Cubes “differ[s] from a mobile web browsing experience” is an embarrassment to the company, and providing fodder for every frustrated developer who thinks Apple has completely lost its way as a company and platform steward that respects the work of independent developers.
Jon Gruber isn’t wrong. The idea that a very well designed app for iOS, iPad, and MacOS would be simply brushed aside from app review as a ‘simple web wrapper’ is absolutely maddening. (I too have the TestFlight version on my iPhone and it’s fantastically well done. A delight to use)
