There have been a number of press reports in the last twenty four hours which carried statements from Apple representatives implying that there had been dialogue between AppGratis and Apple in the run-up to and period since AppGratis was removed from Apple’s App Store.
Simon Dawlat, CEO of AppGratis made the following comment in response to this assertion:
“It is important to me and my team that we clarify what happened. It is absolutely untrue that there were discussions between AppGratis and Apple in advance of our App being removed from Apple’s platform. The first communication from Apple we received was an email sent to us after our App had been removed.
Since our App was removed, we have had one telephone conversation with an Apple employee who repeated the content of Apple’s email to us, and refused to discuss the matter further. Since then Apple has not returned any of our calls. It goes without saying that I am still very keen to speak to them.”
