Apple blocking iOS updates
As you might have been aware, recently an Apple reviewer blocked a bug fix release to Exist for iOS, citing the bit where we’re not allowed make users pay for Exist without offering In-App Purchases as a means for users to pay for their subscriptions. Despite the fact that lots of other apps do this, we didn’t change anything about our subscriptions or business model, and Apple hasn’t changed their guidelines, we’ve been told our appeal failed and now we’re unable to release any updates without fundamentally changing how our subscriptions work to support IAP too. It’s going to be a fair bit of work, so consider this task a blocker to everything else we have planned and in progress. It’s a frustrating situation, so please be patient as we jump through all the required hurdles to give Apple their 30% cut of all our new subscription income. An extra apology to our non-iOS users who are caught in the crossfire.
