Apple’s former Sr. Director of Worldwide Product Marketing, Michael Gartenberg, has said the companies “often praised” App Store is “breaking at the seams” in his opinion.
Gartenberg made the comments in a tweet Friday which reads:
I believe @keleftheriou has brought an important issue about the App Store to a mainstream audience. I hope Apple gets its act together soon. The ecosystem that is often praised is breaking at the seams IMHO
The “important issue” is a reference to recent work from FlickType founder and developer Kosta Eleftheriou to highlight apps on the App Store that breach Apple’s rules and guidelines, often scamming users out huge sums of money. From a report this week:
Apple has removed a children’s platform game from its App Store that turned out to be a front for an online casino.
The app was highlighted by Kosta Eleftheriou on Twitter, as part of a wider project to highlight the App Store might not be as safe and secure as Apple would have users believe. From his tweet:
This AppStore app pretends to be a silly platformer game for children 4+, but if I set my VPN to Turkey and relaunch it becomes an online casino that doesn’t even use Apple’s IAP.
