Air Dictate 2.0: Latest Insane App Store Rejection

Send Article to a Friend

The story so far: Avatron created the Air Dictate app to use the iPhone 4S’s speech dictation for dictating into apps running on your Mac. After initially approving it, Apple pulled the 1.0 version from the App Store, citing Avatron’s use of a non-public method of invoking Siri, so Avatron revised Air Dictate 2.0 to eliminate that interface approach. Now Apple is rejecting the app for lack of compliance with Apple’s trademark guidelines, despite the fact that the app nowhere uses the word “Siri,” the Siri icon, or anything other than the standard iOS interface of starting dictation when you raise the iPhone to your ear.Generic Globefollow link

This frustrating act is "unwarranted," "thoughtless," "self-defeating," "incomprehensible," and "self-inflected." None of those things are equal to mental illness. Thank you.
