Manga Rock 1.3 got rejected

If you have been wondering where the latest version (1.3) of Manga Rock have been this past two weeks, the answer for that is, it’s currently marked “Rejected” by Apple. In the email Apple sent us today, they said that the update could not be approved due to the fact that “it appears to contain features, namely, content, that bear a resemblance to a well-known third-party mark.”

This coincides with the fact that Viz Media contacted us and Apple a few days ago requesting us to remove their titles from Manga Rock (again), which we did. It’s puzzling to us that Apple still decided to reject our update based on the reason above. Right now, we are doing some minor changes to Manga Rock 1.3 and will resubmit it to Apple for approval in a few hours. Let’s hope nothing goes wrong this time around. We will keep you updated.

Thank you for your patience, support and we apologize sincerely for any inconvenience caused.

  1. Really appreciate the hard work you guys have put into this great app.
    It is currently my fav app. On my iTouch everyday just to read manga using your app. ;)

    I was wondering: would the manga series continue to be updated in the near future? For instance, following our update of MangaRock to version 1.3?

    Oh and is it possible for you to add another tab to your catalogue listing only manga series which are completed?
    It is kinda hard to sieve them out from your list of 1000+ manga titles…

    Thanks again and keep up the good work guys!
    Looking forward to version 1.3~~~ ;D

  2. It saddened me to hear that the app was rejected :(
    well in the worst case scenario, if apple persist on rejecting the app can u use cydia as an alternative way to makd the app since it’s legal to jailbreak your iphone :D

    And damn u all who like the news in facebook read the whole thing before u hit that ‘like’ button

    One last thing i’ll always support u all :D
