TextExpander touch SDK under fire from Apple →

Greg Scown:

Yesterday, after a period of engagement with the App Review Team from Apple, they informed us that TextExpander’s use of Reminders for shared snippet data storage is not an intended use of Reminders and will no longer be accepted. TextExpander touch will not clear review until this is resolved. Apps which implement the current TextExpander touch SDK may not clear review until their TextExpander touch SDK is updated.

We have less than two weeks to develop an alternative data exchange mechanism, and this is complicated by the impending Thanksgiving holiday.

On one hand, I don’t blame Apple for stopping this use of Reminders, as a TextExpander (and Smile) fan, this bums me out. I hope they can get this figured out quickly.
