Apple's Guidelines

Apple released updated guidelines following its Worldwide Developers Conference. The set of guidelines include the ban on the apps created by a commercialized template or app generation service. The move seems to be a part of Apple’s larger App Store cleanup in order to wipe out low-quality applications from the market. The move seems to be an attempt from the technology giant to remove clone and span apps.

Apple follows a strict guideline as its app reviewing team has been given strict guidelines prior to submitting an application into the app store.

These apps may not come under the most-rated app but the hold significance of their own. For example, a local pizza shop app will always assist affordable to the users if compared with the top-ranked app in the similar category. While the giant has already rolled out the Apple guidelines (app), it may hamper the growth of truly amazing small applications.
