⚡ Cold email triggers Apple to lift ban on No-Code apps 📨 ⚡
This is a story from 2017 when Apple released updated App Store guidelines that included a new rule allowing it to ban apps created by a “commercialized template or app generation service” aka No-code apps. 🚨
The understanding at the time was this was part of Apple’s larger App Store cleanup, and the focus was on helping rid the marketplace of low-quality clone and spam apps. 📲
But a cold email to Tim Cook from Andrew Gazdecki — CEO of MicroAcquire with a petition made Apple lift the ban. 📧
He quoted apps that were helping teens deal with mental health issues and questioned — Why ban useful mobile apps like this just because it was built with a "No code" app builder? — which made Apple executives rethink about their guidelines. 📋
