2.25: Apps that display Apps other than your own for purchase or promotion in a manner similar to or confusing with the App Store will be rejected, unless designed for a specific approved need (e.g. health management, aviation, accessibility, etc.) or to provide significant added value for a targeted group of customers.

Your app displays apps, other than your own, for purchase or promotion, in a manner similar to the App Store, but it is not designed for a specific, approved need. This is not in compliance with the App Store Review Guidelines.

Please review your app to evaluate what features you can add to significantly differentiate your app from the App Store, both functionally and visually. Apps that also include filtering, bookmarking, searching, or sharing recommendations are not considered to be significantly different from the App Store.

Also, be sure to restrict your app content to a specific need, such as health management, aviation, accessibility, etc. or provides significant added value for a specific group of users. Additionally, your app should feature robust editorial content, for example, from industry experts, bloggers, or publishers.

    It's most likely your chartboost ads. Some people have had app rejected as their "ad" looks like a list of games in a store. Which, apple consider to be confusing. Which doesn't really make sence because, iOS can only download from apple store anyhow.

    @guilleface are you using playhaven or the playhaven more games?

  • guillefaceguilleface Member Posts: 997

    umm they sound the same to me, but on my game project service tab i have playhaven checked,
    on my scene i have a actor with the "show more games"- this action will display a list of games from playhaven ad network, and like i said on the publish site i have only playhaven checked for Interstitial Ads and More Games Ads,

    • But i found this a silly thing "Apps that display Apps other than your own for purchase or promotion in a manner similar to or confusing with the App Store will be rejected", dont all the free apps with ads show this type of display apps?
