iPhone Apps Banned or Removed
In 2014, Launcher was removed from the App Store due to the widget functionality that was implemented inside of its Today widget, found within Notification Center.
Nintype is an iOS 8 keyboard that supports two-handed swipe gestures, and comes packed with a ton of functionality. One such feature is a calculator inside the keyboard, to let users quickly perform calculations without leaving the app they’re currently using.
Earlier this week, Panic, the developers of popular iOS FTP app Transmit, were forced to remove the ‘Sent To’ feature, that let users send files to cloud services like iCloud Drive, Dropbox, etc.
Yesterday, the developer of PCalc received a message from Apple asking him to remove the calculator widget from his app within three weeks. The decision was quite surprising, not only because of how useful the widget was, but also because Apple had featured PCalc in the App Store under the Great Notification Center widgets section.
