Hi all,

New to the forum, so hi!

I have developed a sports application with links to bookies via a 'free bets' section. I see this in a number of other apps (Acca Tracker etc.) but my app was rejected for:

  • 22.1: Apps must comply with all legal requirements in any location where they are made available to users. It is the developer's obligation to understand and conform to all local laws

Then comment of:

  • We found that your app provides access to a gambling website through a web view within the app. This does not comply with the Appstore Guidelines. Please revise your app to either remove this functionality or to launch Safari when linking out to a gambling website.

Question: has anyone had similar experiences? If so what remedy did you include? Geo-block 'banned' countries (US, Turkey etc)? It's easy to remove the web within the app, but strange when others are doing this.

Any help / input would be gratefully received as I try to navigate the 'lengthy' approval process!

Thanks guys and gals!
