Affected include, The affected apps included a Polish magazine, a gif-sharing service and a platform for sending clips of Xbox games to friends.Below is the message which has been sent out to developers affected by recent changes.“Apple was removing gambling-related apps made by individuals in an effort to ‘reduce fraudulent activity… and comply with government requests to address illegal online gambling activity’.”Apple went on to say,“these apps contain gambling but they don’t reveal how they have detected this,” said Simon Stovring, a Copenhagen-based developer behind a gif-sharing app called Gifferent.“It seems like an unfortunate but honest mistake,” he told the BBC.Mr Stovring said about 10 fellow-developers had contacted him to say that they too had been hit by the ban. Wojtek Pietrusiewicz, co-owner of the Polish app iMagazine, said it had also been “caught in the crossfire”.
