WARRENTON, Va., Dec. 21, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- After prolonged efforts from Appy Pie and the Small Business Community, Apple finally revised the controversial 4.2.6 guideline today that had severely hampered many small businesses. The guideline was aimed at reducing low quality apps in the App Store but resulted in many legitimate businesses getting impacted as their apps got rejected.
The earlier guideline "4.2.6 Apps created from a commercialized template or app generation service will be rejected" made it almost impossible for the small businesses to publish their app on the App Store.
The revised guideline states "4.2.6 Apps created from a commercialized template or app generation service will be rejected unless they are submitted directly by the provider of the app's content. These services should not submit apps on behalf of their clients and should offer tools that let their clients create customized, innovative apps that provide unique customer experiences."
App Builder Appy Pie had reached out to congressmen to seek support in their crusade to relieve the business community of this guideline. It was motivating when the esteemed Congressman Ted W. Lieu supported our cause & wrote to Tim Cook, Apple's CEO urging them to reconsider.
We thank the Congressman in joining our cause and helping the "Little Man" enjoy another victory against big conglomerates in their battle for a fair playground.
"Christmas just got merrier for small businesses as the blanket ban on template based apps was lifted with a revision of the guideline." says Mr. Abhinav Girdhar, from Appy Pie. He added, "People can easily submit their apps on the Apple Store from their own developer accounts and our dedicated team is ready to support and guide them in this endeavour."
Appy Pie is also offering 10% discount on Monthly plans, 20% discount on Yearly plans, and 30% discount on Lifetime plans for Holidays.
