Apple is Now Rejecting Apps With Pricing In Their Title

Posted March 29, 2017 at 1:29pm by iClarified · 9433 views
Apple has started rejecting app submissions with pricing information in their title and screenshots, reports VentureBeat.

For years, some developers have put the word 'free' in their app names to try and gain more attention from users browsing the App Store. Previously, developers were discouraged from doing so; however, iTunes Connect is now rejecting submissions.

Here's the error message being presented to developers:

Your app’s name, icons, screenshots, or previews to be displayed on the App Store include references to your app’s price, which is not considered a part of these metadata items.

Please remove any references to your app’s price from your app’s name, including any references to your app being free or discounted. If you would like to advertise changes to your app’s price, it would be appropriate to include this information in the app description. Changes to your app’s price can be made in the Pricing and Availability section of iTunes Connect.

Apple confirmed the change but declined to comment.

Irrelevant. What Apple needs to do away with, are annoying 'freemium' apps leeching small IAPs or even 'Pay2Win' regardless of demand.

Pricing isn't what bothers me. It's the trend to to create 8 bit looking games. If I wanted to play 8 bit looking crap, I would have kept my Atari from the 80s. It's not reissuing old stuff that bothers me but creating new stuff that looks old.

So, consumers have to spend more time to click on the app and see if it is free or not? How stupid but does not surprise me at all. Our browsing history is now also available for sale to the highest bidder. No problem, good luck trying to sell me some of the crap with advertisement.

Pricing is already visible from the search. Guessing you either don't download much or don't use iOS.
