Apple cracks down on apps that fight iPhone addiction
  • Analysis by The New York Times and Sensor Tower (app-data firm) shows that Apple has been killing the businesses of screen-use tracking app developers.
  • Shortly after announcing its own tools for limiting screen-use, Apple started removing apps with similar functionalities from the App Store.
  • They gave only a short explanation and virtually no support, destroying the viability of businesses like Mobicip that’ve supported the App Store for years.
  • As a result, some app makers with thousands of paying customers had to shut down, and others are worried about their future.
