• Valve says Apple is blocking Steam Link from App Store due to ‘business conflicts'

    6 monthes ago - By MobileSyrup

    Apple rejected Valve's Steam Link app due to “business conflicts” according to a statement from Valve. A tweet by the official Steam Database Twitter account alleged that Apple revoked approval for the app. The tech giant cited “business conflicts” as the reason. It's not clear yet what these “business conflicts” are. It could have something to do with Apple's 30 percent App Store fee for all purchases, or that the app allows iOS users to access another app store-Steam-directly on the phone.

    Google's Duo and Cisco's Webex Teams among the VoIP apps pulled from the China App Store

    6 monthes ago - By TechCrunch

    Earlier this week, it came to light that Apple had removed a number of VoIP-based calling apps from the App Store, at the request of the Chinese government. The apps had been using CallKit, Apple's new developer toolset that provides the calling interface for VoIP apps, freeing up developers to handle the backend communications. China's government asked developers, by way of Apple, to remove CallKit from their apps sold on the China App Store, or they can remove their apps entirely.
    Notices Apple sent out to the developers were first spotted by 9to5Mac , who shared a snippet from of one of...

    Valve's in-home streaming tech is proving to be its most forward-thinking development.

    Steam Link won't come to iOS after all, as Apple cites ‘business conflicts'

    6 monthes ago - By TheBoyGeniusReport

    It looks like Valve's Steam Link app, which lets you stream games from your PC to your mobile device , will remain an Android exclusive, marking a strange win for the Google Play store.
    That's because Apple decided to ban Steam Link from the App Store, citing “business conflicts with app guidelines.” That means iPhone and iPad users won't be able to install Valve's game streaming app on their devices.

    Steam Link arrives on Android as expected but is barred from iOS by Apple

    6 monthes ago - By Pocket-lint

    Valve has received an unexpected set-back in its games streaming plans. Earlier this month we wrote that it was to release Steam Link for Android and iOS , which enables you to stream full PC games to your mobile device over a home network. You need a decent games PC to do so, but using Steam and the Steam Link app, you can play the games stored on your computer on a tablet or phone remotely - with some wireless controllers supported. So far, so good. However, while the beta version of Steam Link was released for Android this week, and is available on Google Play now , Apple has changed...
