Clarification on the App Store’s Confederate Flag Policy ➝

Carter Dotson, writing for TouchArcade:

Andrew Mulholland of HexWar says “basically we need to remove prominent flags from the screenshots” and “don’t have them in the app icon.” The Confederate flag is okay within games, but it appears that it just needs to not be prominent at all in the forward-facing parts of the App Store.

This seems like a much more reasonable rule to follow than what I thought Apple may have been enforcing yesterday. But, I still see the Confederate flag in screenshots for Hunted Cow Studios’ Civil War: 1863. If this is the rule, it shouldn’t be enforced inconsistently. Developers need to know what to expect before they create a game so that they don’t get the rug pulled out from underneath them.
