Apple Ousts Discovery App AppGratis From Apple Store

Apple Ousts Discovery App  AppGratis From Apple StoreAppGratis one of the most used discovery app among iPhone users with more than 12 million iOS users have been pulled by Apple  from the App Store couple of days ago.

Apple claims it violates two clauses, first banning apps that promote other apps in a manner similar to the App Store, and second forbidding apps using push notifications to send advertising, promotions, or direct marketing of any kind.

AppGratis,  promotes paid apps by offering one for free everyday to users. AppGratis CEO Simon Dawlat responded to Apple’s move in a lengthy blog post.

Dawlate sounded confident even after the setback. “Even if our iOS apps are momentarily unavailable, your app recommendation service, AppGratis, is very much up and running. If you’re part of the 12 million lucky people to have downloaded our app before last Friday, know that it will keep updating everyday with new free apps and cool discounts. So will our website, and so will our daily newsletter.”
