FlexBright: App Review Strikes Again

Julie Clover (via MacRumors):

FlexBright developer Sam Al-Jamal told MacRumors he had worked with Apple through several app rejections to get FlexBright into the App Store and that no private APIs were in use, something that was seemingly confirmed by the app’s approval, but further review from Apple led to FlexBright’s removal. Al-Jamal has shared Apple’s explanation with MacRumors following an “exhausting discussion” with the Cupertino company. “The bottomline is Apple won’t allow apps to change screen colors,” he said.

It’s impossible to comprehend the inconsistent behaviour from the App Review team. Making a developer—any developer—waste time on developing solutions for something that they will ultimately reject is unforgivable.
