Apple Rejects iOS Steam Link App

Valve announces the iOS edition of the Steam Link App has failed to meet with Apple's standards, and at this point will not be released for iPhones. Here's their explanation:
On Monday, May 7th, Apple approved the Steam Link app for release. On Weds, May 9th, Valve released news of the app. The following morning, Apple revoked its approval citing business conflicts with app guidelines that had allegedly not been realized by the original review team. Valve appealed, explaining the Steam Link app simply functions as a LAN-based remote desktop similar to numerous remote desktop applications already available on the App Store. Ultimately, that appeal was denied leaving the Steam Link app for iOS blocked from release. The team here spent many hours on this project and the approval process, so we're clearly disappointed. But we hope Apple will reconsider in the future.

There's been other incidents of Apple not allowing certain books/comics, apps on their store simply based on content. No thanks, I won't have some company regulating what I am allowed to read/view. Apple banned this app because it's basically a storefront where they won't get a 30% cut of the profit.

I never even considered Steam Link via IOS devices, that would have been brilliant. I enjoyed the Shadowrun games on my ipad. Wish there were more like that available.

The timing is interesting considering the recent Steam news on limiting adult content, and then reversing.

Storefront costs being brought up to defend Steam vs. Apple.. Truly hilarious.
