Apple has been pretty strict about the guidelines governing iOS apps and their submission. In a way, that has been precisely the reason for the quality of iOS apps but at the same time, this has posed a significant number of problems for app developers. For instance, support forums of Dropbox are now reporting that Apple review team is blocking all such apps which make use of Dropbox’s SDK.


The reason why Apple is rejecting these apps is because Dropbox’s new SDK takes cares of the authorization required by third-party apps. While authorizing these apps, the page that the user is directed to also lets him create new accounts. With the creation of an account, the user can then hook up to Dropbox’s site and even opt for a paid account.

Apple’s policy has been to reject such apps which allow external subscriptions. Unless the purchase or subscription that is being made is also available as Apple’s in-app purchases, Apple wouldn’t allow it under the rule ‘because we allow users to create accounts.’ And now, apps incorporating Dropbox’s new SDK have come under the axe due to the same very reason.

However, Dropbox is working diligently to overcome this problem. Initially, the company tried to resolve this issue by removing the link that redirected the users to its website’s desktop version. But for Apple, that didn’t suffice. Now, the company has tried to overhaul the entire thing by introducing a new SDK that will simply remove the ability to create new accounts.

However, this adaptation may, in turn, pose problems for iOS app developers. Nonetheless, the issue is currently being discussed between Apple and Dropbox. According to Dropbox, ‘Apple is rejecting apps that use the Dropbox SDK because we allow users to create accounts.’ However, the company is ‘working with Apple to come up with a solution that still provides an elegant user experience.’
