The Voice Central developer talked with Apple about his application being removed. Here is the transcript.
(Via Daring Fireball.)
There are no questions being answered — just a series of “I can’t answer that,” or “I can’t help you with that” stock replies.
Apple, look. I know that AT&T is most likely the one to blame here. But it doesn’t matter. You are putting the iPhone’s most important asset, its third party developers, in a shitty position: they can put months of day and night-work into an application, and end up with it being pulled from the App Store without so much as a real explanation.
This is ridiculous. You need to set out what is and isn’t allowed, and follow that. And you need to be responsive to developers — they are not your little play toys to jerk around.
