Just got a phone call from Apple letting us know that our iPad app My Frame is being removed from the store. Apparently Apple is cracking down on widgety type apps. Our app is a beautiful photo frame with a few nice things you can put over your photos. Its not ugly, or even widgety.
What gives? Ive always defended you guys in the past, but it seems like youve crossed an invisible line here, even the guy on the phone was saying how much he likes our application but that theres nothing he can do?
We are not allowing apps that create their own desktops. Sorry.

Understand, but dont agree besides all of which our application (My Frame) is a photo frame, not a desktop environment. Your people wont even tell us what we need to remove to get approved, they are just kicking us out. Put yourself in our shoes.
Stories like this continue to plague developers who invest massive amounts of time and money into their applications. Apple's continually changing App Store policies are likely to drive more and more developers to Google and Microsoft once their platforms mature.
