• Chinese Ad Company Takes Responsibility for App Store Policy Violations



    As MMi reported Monday, SourceDNA recently discovered third-party ad APIs from China inside of hundreds of iOS apps. Not surprisingly, the move prompted Apple to dump the offending apps and publicly pledge to ensure that all efforts will be taken to stop this trend in its tracks.

    All told, the proliferation of the APIs -- which aimed to gather data including email address and device info -- was blamed on mobile advertising company Youmi Mobile Technology Co. And on Tuesday, the company came forward to accept responsibility.

    In addition to offering "sincere apologies," Youmi said that more moves would be made. "For those products that have been temporarily taken down, we will provide reasonable compensation once this matter has been properly resolved," the company's statement reads.

    More than 250 apps were removed by Apple as a result of the SourceDNA discovery.

    Apple says that new apps submitted to the App Store (those using Youmi's SDK) would be rejected.
