GoodReader Forced to Remove Select iCloud Features to Comply With 'Mandatory' App Store Policy

Posted by · 10982 views · Translate
GoodReader has been forced to remove several iCloud features to comply with Apple's 'mandatory' usage policy. The changes were announced in a recent update to the app.

GoodReader is a PDF reader app. It can read large PDF and TXT files, manuals, books, magazines, and renderings of 100 mb and more.

Here's the functionality changes that GoodReader had to make.

Important iCloud functionality change:
- to ensure the compliance to Apple's iCloud usage policy, the following operations have been disabled: creation of new folders inside iCloud, deletion of folders inside iCloud, moving of files and folders inside iCloud.
We apologize for the inconvenience, but the iCloud usage policy is mandatory.


Apple's policy with regards to iCloud and widget functionality is often unclear and the company has reversed some of its policy decisions in the past. We'll let you know if there are any more developments in this regard. You can follow iClarified on Twitter, Facebook, Google+, or RSS for updates.

You can purchase GoodReader from the App Store for $4.99.

I use DropBox because iCloud is so screwy so this doesn't hinder my usage. GoodReader is still head and shoulders above the more expensive new PDFPen2.

I mean why aren't you allowed to create folders and delete folders and move things in iCloud, why restrict something like that, cause Apple wants to hinder their competition and make it so that only apples apps can do that

Apple does more work than ever, they barely have any time to work out icloud like they wanted to make it.

If the current features are important to you, do not update.
