Apple Yanks Privacy App From The App Store

Dubbed “Clueful ” by Bucharest, Romania-based Bitdefender, the App tells owners of iOS devices which applications may be accessing more information than they need, and identifies potentially “misbehaving” apps, giving users an inside look at all the information app developers can gather about a user. In simple terms, Clueful identifies potentially intrusive applications and shows users what they do behind their back.
Seems legit, right? Apple doesn’t think so. Or at least they have an issue with something behind the App that sparked them to pull it from the App Store this week.
After initially reviewing and approving the App that was released on May 22, and has been available in the App store for months, Apple has had a change of heart and has removed the App from the AppStore.
“Apple informed Bitdefender’s product development team of the removal — for reasons the company is studying — after initial approval and sale in the App Store,” the company said in a statement Wednesday.
