Last month, we introduced Airfoil Speakers Touch 3, which added
the ability to receive audio directly from other iOS devices, as
well as iTunes. Users and reviewers alike have loved Airfoil
Speakers Touch, particularly the new version. For our part, we’ve

Today, we’ve been informed that Apple has removed Airfoil Speakers
Touch from the iOS App Store. We first heard from Apple about
this decision two days ago, and we’ve been discussing the pending
removal with them since then. However, we still do not yet have a
clear answer on why Apple has chosen to remove Airfoil Speakers
Touch. Needless to say, we’re quite disappointed with their
decision, and we’re working hard to once again make the
application available for you, our users.
As far as we can tell, Airfoil Speakers Touch is in full
compliance with Apple’s posted rules and developer agreements.
However cruddy it is to have an app rejected during the review process, it’s worse to have it yanked from the store after it had been approved. Rogue Amoeba’s been promoting this new version to users for a month now.
I can’t imagine what Apple would object to with this app, or why they wouldn’t provide Rogue Amoeba with a precise explanation before removing the app.
