New Site Logs iPhone App Store Rejections

There was a discussion on PCMag, last week regarding the iPhone of Apple’s testing process, in which there was a column stating that except Apple, anyone does not know about the number of apps that got rejected exactly, for any reason. The initiator of the this App rejection site in an interview said that the site cannot answer the question of how many apps are rejected but can answer many other queries asked by the developers and says that the site has long way to go.

App rejection site collects all those applications that are thrown out by the notoriously firm grip of Apple on the App store matter. This App rejection site brings out the name, the justification of Apple for rejecting the App and sometimes the content of rejected applications along with the editor’s comment. This site appears to be designed to caution the developers of App store regarding the harmful or junk applications. This site also gives an interesting outlook on those random rules by which the processes of Apple are governed.
