Today’s slice of weird news from the App Store disapprovals team is that Apple is pulling WiFi stumbling apps from the store – you know, the Apps which find and name locally operational open and closed wireless networks.
“We received a very unfortunate email today from Apple stating that WiFi-Where has been removed from sale on the App Store for using private frameworks to access wireless information,” the developer of WiFi-Where says.
“It also appears that all other competing WiFi enabled apps have been removed as well. This is very unfortunate as the past 2-3 months have seen a handful of new WiFi apps get approved. Hopefully Apple will allow this functionality in a future SDK,” the developer concludes.
So there’s a second market to help stoke the coming Android App gold rush – WiFi finders for downloading stuff on open wireless networks, and adult apps to help you find stuff to download.
