Apple approved torrent apps by mistake
« on: September 30, 2012, 12:49:39 pm »
Just a few days ago we published an article suggesting that Apple had lifted the ban on BitTorrent apps.

This spring the company gave its blessing to a remote control app for the Transmission BitTorrent client, and this surprise approval was followed by another for a similar uTorrent app last week.

This was a fairly remarkable move since Apple previously told developers that their apps were not allowed because “this category of applications is often used for the purpose of infringing third-party rights.”

However, as it turns out the excitement was only temporary.

Craig Donnelly, developer of the Conttrol app for uTorrent, informs TorrentFreak that he received a phone call from Apple’s headquarters yesterday.

“Got a call there a little earlier from California,” Craig says. “It seems Apple are not ok with apps that have anything to do with BitTorrent.”

“The nice girl on the other end of phone said that Conttrol had been approved by mistake and Apple were sorry for the inconvenience but apps of this nature are not allowed in the store,” he adds.

So that’s it. BitTorrent apps are still banned by Apple, indefinitely.
