Dropbox Confirms Its Working With Apple Over App Rejection Issue

Posted on May 2 2012 - 6:31am by Editorial Staff

We reported earlier that on a support thread in Dropbox’s user support forums, with developers complaining that their apps are not being accepted by the Apple’s App Store review team. Dropbox’s new SDK handles the authorization of third-party apps by sending users to a page in Safari where they can grant access, but the same accounts also allows new users to create accounts, after which they have upgrade to a paid account.

Dropbox, which has more than 50 million users across 250 million different devices, released a statement about the issue to AppleInsider: “Apple is rejecting apps that use the Dropbox SDK because we allow users to create accounts. We’re working with Apple to come up with a solution that still provides an elegant user experience.”
