Beware of Beacon App Generators

We are seeing more and more organisations using our beacons with apps that have been created using (online) app generation services. If you are one of these organisations then you ought to be made aware of a recent change to Apple’s review guidelines:

Section 4.2.6 states:

Apps created from a commercialized template or app generation service will be rejected

There’s discussion on this on the Apple forums and on reddit.

Whatever your or others’ view of this, Apple have already started cleaning the hundreds of thousands of titles from App Store. Beware that if you use an app generator, your app might get rejected and even if it’s accepted it might some day be taken down.
