Tamper, the developers behind visual organiser “Morning” – (which we featured just a few weeks ago) – have announced this afternoon that they have been asked by Apple to remove the ability to drag and rearrange the app’s panels, because this ‘violates’ Apple’s App Store developer guidelines.
According to the update’s description, the company was reportedly forced to remove the functionality after Apple deemed it an outright violation of Section 10.4 of the App Store Review Guidelines.
Section 10.4 of Apple’s Developer Review Guidelines reads:
“Apps that create alternate desktop/home screen environments or simulate multi-App widget experiences will be rejected.”
“We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause and hope you still enjoy using Morning,” the firm writes.
In addition to this, the latest update to Morning includes improvements to the app’s ‘Location Search’ feature, now resulting in the speed of the app finding your location being faster, especially in relation to the “Commute” panel.
You’ll also find a bunch of minor bug fixes in this release, including:
- Commute is now working for our Australian users, (you’ll need to re-enter your addresses for this to work)
- Fixes a bug with the default location search location if Location Services are turned off
- Fixes a crash related to no RSS/Atom feeds being found on a page
- Fixes a crash in stock search
- Fixes a crash in Reminders
- Fixes a reachability related crash
- Fixes a crash when a news source does not have a title
Morning is currently available at its “launch price” of $2.99.
