Apple’s inscrutable policies have hobbled yet another great iOS app. Transmit iOS 1.1.1 can no longer send documents to other services due to Apple demanding that developer Panic remove the option to send a file to iCloud Drive. The problem is that iCloud Drive is built into the sharing sheet — with no way to remove just that option — so Panic had to disable the Send feature entirely. Apple told Panic that only content created inside an app can be uploaded to iCloud Drive, though no specific rule states that. [Update: Apple has reversed course and Transmit 1.1.2 can once again send documents to iCloud.]
