Quickpick: Δεν είναι πλέον διαθέσιμο!

Εμείς σας το είπαμε… Κατεβάστε το όσο προλαβαίνετε! Η εφαρμογή που σας έδινε την δυνατότητα να προσθέσετε shortcuts στο Notification Center του iOS 5 χωρίς Jailbreak, κατέβηκε εν ριπή οφθαλμού από το AppStore.

Εμείς το διαπιστώσαμε όταν αναζητήσαμε την εφαρμογή, αλλά ήρθε και η επίσημη επιβεβαίωση από του δημιουργούς, στο Twitter:

Our newest app #quickpick has been removed from sale by Apple this minute. Without explanatory statements so far.

Αργότερα έγινε διαθέσιμη και η επίσημη θέση των δημιουργών:

Neoos’ official statement regarding Apple’s removal of our app Quickpick – The Universal iOS Launcher!

Today around 5:30PM CET, Apple called our head office to let us know they have pulled our app Quickpick from all its App Stores world wide. The Apple representative stated that it was because the app made inappropriate use of the Notification Center which was essentially resulting in non-compliance with Apple’s HIG (human interface guidelines). Apple’s suggested solution for a possible successful resubmit of Quickpick is to strip the notification parts from the app which would leave it with simple launcher functionality.

When listing Quickpick for review about a week ago, we were very clear that the primary function was to provide useful actions in the Notification Center.

Of course, our team is disappointed in Apple’s decision to remove Quickpick from the App Store. During the last days we’ve received a lot of very positive feedback from our users and we have already submitted an updated version 1.1 with some cool new features and two bugfixes.

According to Apple, users who purchased Quickpick before it has been pulled will continue to be able to use the product. We regret that we cannot provide our users neither with new features nor with bugfix releases.

We promise we’ll do everything we can to provide support by any measure still available to us. We’re currently weighing our options on how to proceed.

Η θέση της Apple έχει να κάνει με την παραβιάσει των HIG (human interface guidelines), αλλά πιστεύουμε πως αργότερα θα καλύψει αυτό το κενό με κάποια αναβάθμιση του iOS. Αν εσείς πάντως διαβάζετε συχνά iAppsHellas, τώρα λογικά θα πρέπει να έχει διαμορφώσει το Notification Center του iOS 5 με βάση τις ανάγκες σας, με την βοήθεια του Quickpick, όπως κάνουμε και εμείς.
