Apple rejects app because it lacks a report function

#1

Hi,

we’ve submitted an app built with Fabric to the App Store. Basically the app enables users to post an image to Twitter and view the images of other users in a view with TWTRSearchTimelineDatasource.

Now the app has been rejected because it doesn’t provide an option for users to report and block other tweets/users. However it looks like Fabric doesn’t support these features.

How would we solve this problem?

Thanks in advance.

are you using a TWTRTimelineViewController to display the Tweets from a TWTRSearchTimelineDataSource? Or are you rendering your own results based on the API wrapper?


#3

Yes, we’re using TWTRTimelineViewController.

I would suggest resubmitting the app to Apple. I have not seen any other apps showing Tweets ever be rejected for lacking a “Report Tweet” button. Even TweetBot, a very popular Twitter client lacks the Report Tweet functionality.

Hey guys, thanks for the feedback. So we re-submitted and got a call afterwards from the app reviewer afterwards.

14.3 - Apps that display user generated content must include a method for filtering objectionable material, a mechanism for users to flag offensive content, and the ability to block abusive users from the service

So we are kinda confused.


#6

Can you please send screenshots of your app experience to support@fabric.io so we may better understand your application and how it might vary from a typical Twitter Kit implementation submitted to the app store?

You may also filter Tweets marked as potentially sensitive by including filter:safe in your search query.
