Unity Engine Causes App Store Headaches

November 16th, 2009 by Arjan Olsder Posted in Platforms: iOS | No Comments »

Unity3d Just before the weekend, a number of developers saw their mobile games being booted off the App Store by Apple. The problem? They used Unity Platform and Unity was breaching its contract with Apple by supporting undocumented API’s.

Through these undocumented API’s, Unity developers could access and transmit user data without prior approval of the consumer. Over the past weeks, a number of developers (under which Storm8) received credits for this behavior.

Meanwhile, Unity has been working on a Fix which they are now distributing to all their developers. With the fix in place, Unity powered games will once again comply with Apple’s rules. For those developers that were not allowed to go live with their apps, this means they will have to re-enter the submission queue.
