Now Apple Blocks Dropbox Apps in new Dropbox SDK

Late last week, Apple started blocking apps that use the new Dropbox Software Development Kit (SDK) on the grounds that they are sending users to an additional purchase.The DropBox is a Digital locker Services and its widely used by iOS developer to sharing a file to other user.

Applications based on the new development kit allow users that don't have the Dropbox app installed on their iOS device to use the browser instead to access the website for authorisation. The problem is the tiny link in the corner of the Log In screen that says “Desktop Version”.

I understand Apple's need to protect their ecosystem but crap like this just crosses the line,” wrote one of the users on the Dropbox forum.Dropbox has approached Apple to try and solve the issue. “We're working with Apple to come up with a solution that still provides an elegant user experience,” read a statement given to Apple Insider.
