Are you kidding me, Apple?

© September 2015 Anthony Lawrence

So Apple has a stringent app review process? Really?

Then how do they explain corrupted apps getting through just because they were created by a bogus version of Xcode? Where's the "stringent review" in that process? There isn't any, and Apple wan't even the one to catch the apps - that was third parties who noticed the bad apps and reported them. Apple had no clue.

So all along this "stringent review" process was nothing more than "Ayup, looks like it was compiled with Xcode, good enough". That's utterly ridiculous. That's beyond utterly ridiculous!

I certainly hope Apple learns something from this.
