Sad day today :(

On our happy quest to continuously bring you the best poker tracker with the new version 4.7, we’ve seen our release held several days by the App Store submission review team, to finally see it rejected for our Health Kit usage.

Today we’re using the iOS Health Kit framework to bring you reports that uses data from the Health app: sleep, calories and workouts.

After providing more information on the way we use the reports, we’ve finally seen our appeal on the decision also rejected.

From Apple’s 2.5.1 guidelines:

Apps should use APIs and frameworks for their intended purposes. […] HealthKit should be used for health and fitness purposes and integrate with the Health app

So apparently we’re not using the framework for its purposes, we’re not encouraging you to have a healthy & fitness-y lifestyle.

But hey, no worries Apple! We will only comply with your decision if we want our app on the store.

What does this means for you? If you’re using our Health reports in Poker Analytics, please understand that unfortunately those reports are going to be removed from the app with the release of 4.7 that will come soon. That means that you should check them out while you still can.

The good news is that we’re more motivated than ever, that 4.7 comes with great features, and that we’ve already started working on 5.0! We can’t wait to show you what’s next!
