‘Business Conflicts’ ➝

John Voorhees, writing for MacStories:

A couple of weeks ago we reported that Valve was preparing to release an app called Steam Link that would allow gamers to stream Steam games to an Apple TV or iOS device over a fast WiFi or Ethernet network. The app was set to debut this week, but it was rejected by Apple’s App Review team. According to a press release from Valve, Steam Link was approved by App Review on May 7th and then rejected on May 10th, one day after Valve announced the app was coming to iOS and tvOS.

I can only assume that the Steam Link app surfaces the game store in a way that Apple wasn’t fond of. If that’s the case, this will hopefully be an easy fix and the app will be available soon. Unless Valve decides to pull an Amazon and refuses to make the necessary changes.

But if this is just another boneheaded decision by Apple to block an app that’s fully within the guidelines of the App Store, then this whole situation is bullshit and Apple needs to fix it.
