              Against spam and clone apps, Apple wants to take more action in the App Store. But also serious companies that use app template services suffer from this.
            
            
            
            Anyone who wants to create an iOS app for their own company but do not have the necessary technical or financial resources to develop it themselves, in the past liked to use so-called app building kits – template services, with which one their own programs easily button. However, Apple is now against such apps before or does not leave them at all in the App Store. This is also the case in the company's current developer guidelines: under point 4.2.6 it means that programs created using "commercialized template or app generation service [s]" are rejected.
"Disaster" for SMEs?
As Mobilbranche.de writes, the more recent application of Directive 4.2.6 has developed into a "disaster". More and more legitimate template apps from small and medium-sized businesses would be sacrificed, which would be a consequent problem. Actually, the rule is to avoid spam and clone apps, of which there were in the App Store in the meantime large quantities – already in summer, Apple should have cleared hundreds of thousands of titles.
App building kits become a problem
The rejection rate for apps from templates should have increased in the recent past, as the report says. The company AppYourself, which has developed an app-kit and in which Heise Medien GmbH & Co. KG is also involved, told Mobilbranche that, before Directive 4.2.6, just over 10% of all apps had been rejected, now stands at 60 Percent – with increasing tendency. The head of AppYourself, Benjamin Heisch said, small businesses and start-ups would be denied access to the App Store. "In terms of fairness and equal opportunities, this can only be assessed negatively."
Also affected PhoneGap and TapJet?
In the summer, the US IT blog TechCrunch reported that popular tool kits such as PhoneGap and TapJet might also be in conflict with the new policy. The reasons for Apple's policy can only be speculated. With imitation games and other stolen applications, a more aggressive approach by the group is certainly user-friendly – the template apps can be a collateral damage.
