Apple approved an update to the Hey subscription email app over the weekend after rejecting one last week, developer Basecamp said on Monday. He came while Apple was preparing itsevent Monday.
Basecamp tweeted that the updates had been rejected several times, as TechCrunch noted, apparently because it did not offer in-app purchases for the full service at $ 99 per year. The app also lacked functionality when downloading – you must visit the company website to register.
A more recent update, submitted by Basecamp on Monday, added a “new free option” to the iOS app to meet Apple’s requirements.
David Heinemeier Hansson, co-founder of Basecamp, tweeted about Monday’s update.
“So now, we are waiting. Can this impasse end in truth?” he wrote.
Apple’s decision also followed the European Competition Commissionin Apple Pay and the App Store, as well as calls from Microsoft President Brad Smith for on App Store policies.
Apple did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
