  4. @mike_ftw He said in his post: "you need a Facebook account (or, as in my case, to be a friend of the people behind it)"

  5. @cabel @mike_ftw Which proves that the Facebook account isn't really necessary. Makes me wonder why they ask for it…

  7. @KuraFire It's also a way to be sure I won't bother with it though. Which, I'm sorry about. /cc @chockenberry @cabel @mike_ftw

  8. @restiffbard @chockenberry @cabel @mike_ftw I personally plan to offer Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn as account creation methods. Choice.

  9. @chockenberry @cabel @mike_ftw I think @alanQuatermain nailed it when he said in-app sign up is no longer allowed. So apps bootstrap via fb.

    Either

    1. Maintaining your own login system at scale and long term is a development nightmare

  11. @auibrian @chockenberry @cabel @mike_ftw that's exactly why. Apple won't let you offer a 'create an account' feature, nor a link to one.

  12. @alanQuatermain @auibrian @chockenberry @mike_ftw Wha? When did this happen? What about Instagram? And why would Facebook somehow be ok?

  15. @cabel @alanQuatermain @chockenberry @mike_ftw no sign up link in FB I believe. You can leverage existing accts just not create them in app.

  17. @auibrian @cabel @chockenberry @mike_ftw Oh, there is a 'sign up' link in the FB dialog. That one's apparently exempt.

    @cabel @auibrian @chockenberry @mike_ftw Yes— because we had to rip out all purchasing possibility and inference.

    @cabel @auibrian @chockenberry @mike_ftw We were told it was in 11.13 or whatever section forced IAP. It's not there though.

    @badeen @auibrian @chockenberry @cabel @mike_ftw Not according to the people running App Review, who told us that it applies to "all apps".
