C64 Emulator App For iPhone Pulled From The AppStore by Apple…

Wow, we couldn’t believe it , Apple approved C64 emulator app in the appstore and everybody went crazy.But,all miracles only last 3 days, because Apple pulled the app from the appstore ( who would’ve thought?!?! ) after instructions were posted online on how to enable its hidden BASIC interpreter functionality.

Apparently Apple asked the developers to remove the BASIC interpreter before they would approve the application. The developers, however, included the ability to remotely enable the interpreter in hopes that Apple would change their mind. And Apple did change their mind…

Unfortunately Apple this night pulled the C64 App from the App Store. We had agreed with Apple to remove basic from the application, but as we believed it would be possible to convince Apple to let it in later on, we left it in the app to be activated remotely by us when we had “go” from Apple.

Due to the extreme publicity the app has received over the weekend and the fact that several users found a way to enable the basic back, Apple decided to remove the app from App Store until we have solved the issue.

This is very frustrating as we had no intention of tricking basic into the app and the fix was done in a few minutes the moment we found out – a new version has been submitted to Apple, and we can only hope Apple will appreciate our efforts to apply the changes they need in order to put it back on.
