Apple is known to be strict in approving applications designed by third party companies. Even seasoned application developers have seen rejection thanks to some trivial things, which they have failed to implement that have brought the rejection from the company. This is the basic reason, why you could see some of the best collection of applications over Apple App Store. Hence developers designing different applications for Apple App Store need to be conscious enough to embark with quality work as this will avert the rejection from the company. The best way to avoid rejection is to know the number of reasons, which Apple has been considering to reject the applications coming over App Store. The following is the list of reasons for which Apple has been rejecting the applications designed for App Store. Let’s have a look at these:
Your application have vibration element
The application developer is not supposed to use consistent vibration in his or her designed apps. You could sense the presence of these vibrations in the form of short bursts including warning. These things are a big no no for the Apple App Store, hence when it comes to developing some apps for Apple, make sure you simply avoid the vibration element just to avoid the rejections. That is one of the reasons why Apple App Store will be rejecting your application.
Longer loading time
All most all the mobile operating systems including iOS, Google Android and even the Windows are seen enforcing the maximum application startup time. For the iOS, you have the permissible time limit as 15 seconds and your application fail to run within this said time duration then the OS would kill the same. But at the same time, if your application is loading in the defined time limits during the local testing, slower hardware and slow speed network these things along with the other factors would simply make your application to run slowly in the review progression. Hence make sure you do not just simply depend upon the iOS simulator alone but at the same time test the apps over the right hardware platform along with testing over the older phone devices. This will help you in knowing whether or not your apps have the snappy startup. So, don’t ever forget that the load time of your application could be called as the very first feature that can impress Apple and of course the users as well.
Wrong usage of storage and file systems
The moment the iOS 5.1 was released in the market, Apple was seen rejecting the application update just because the developers were seen unpacking the 2Mb database within the application bundle found in the file system. This has therefore seen some violation at the iCloud ideal end, which is basically meant for the backup for the user generated content. The data, which is regenerated just as it happens to be static in nature and shipped out with the app or could be simply downloaded from the remote server, shouldn’t be seen with the backup. For the non user data, the application developer has to select the option of cache storage location or has to be marked as the attribute called do not backup.
Misuse of the logos and trademarks
Another key reason why Apple can reject your application is when you use any trademark material, even the Apple logos or icons or things like some product pictures over the developed application. Hence you are not supposed to use the icons, which simply feature any drawing of the iPhone device. Also, your application could be rejected for carrying trademarks over the keywords defined for your apps. The negative side of this issue is that you are supposed to be assured to a fact that your application doesn’t really obscure the required attribution information over the embedded maps. If this happens this could eventually compel Apple to reject your application.
Copying a few existing features
This is regarded as one of the subtle type of violations that has hampered a wide range of developers embarking with a number of applications for Apple App Store. Despite the huge publicized podcaster tragedy, if you look at the reports, Apple has now become very much strict on the duplicating a number of features while developing any application for the company. If you are treading this path, make sure you have opened all the gates of rejection from Apple for your designed application.
These are among the possible important reasons, which Apple checks when you submit any application for the App Store. Hence better have a look at your designed application and make it free from these violations as discussed above so that your application is approved by Apple.
