Report: Apple Rejected a Steve Jobs Quote App

Steve JobsA new app has surfaced that features Steve Jobs quotes. But it turns out Apple wasn’t impressed, according to a new report. Quoth Steve has cropped up on the Web as a mobile app that users can run in the browser. The app provides daily Steve Jobs quotes that can be saved, shared via social networks, or synched to different devices. The app was initially planned for Apple’s App Store, but according to co-creator John Gill, who coincidentally works as a developer at Amazon, Apple denied its entry into its marketplace. Speaking to Recode in an interview published Monday, Gill claims that he attempted to have his app approved by Apple, only to be told by the company that it won’t accept any apps focused solely on its co-founder. Apple asked that he add quotes from other popular figures in addition to Jobs, but Gill told Recode that he didn’t feel it was in the spirit of the app.
