Our Apple app was REJECTED! Now what?
Don't worry! When an app is rejected (This usually only happens with Apple), you will receive a notice of the exact reason(s). If you (the client) did not cause the rejection by making changes in the app., then DonPaul Enterprises (DPE) will work with the reviewers to fix any issues and the app will be resubmitted at no cost to you (the client) When an app is rejected it goes back to the beginning of the “wait” cycle. That is why we (DPE) makes ever attempt to get the app to pass the publication process the first time.
