Apple seems to be having serious Bi-Polar issues. The decisions to accept or reject Apps for their store are becoming more and more irrational, lacking any rhyme or reason. Let alone any clear explanation. Cast Catcher, a streaming Internet Radio App resting in the exact same genre as Pandora and AOL Radio, both of which are available on the App Store since its opening is the latest victim to Apples hormonal inconsistencies.
Cast Catcher 1.3 was rejected because:
CastCatcher Internet Radio cannot be posted to the App Store because it is transferring excessive volumes of data over the cellular network, which as outlined in the iPhone SDK Agreement section 3.3.15, is prohibited.
What is so bizarre regarding this behavior (aside the afore mentioned similar apps above) is that CastCatcher 1.2 Is STILL available in iTunes. Thorazine anyone? This makes us wonder if maybe AT&T might be pressuring Apple somehow, with them realizing that their network which is already stressed might now be pressured to the point of breaking due to the high volume/traffic the iPhones data stream needs entail. Could it be that Apple is simply hitting those golden years and their mind is going? Only time will tell.
