Apple, Developers Think You Are Just One Inconsistent Loop

We asked a group of independent developers the question, what frustrates you most about developing on iOS?

Their answers were thought provoking and encouraged us to write about them in detail.

Inconsistent app rejections, flagging developer accounts, long app review times and not being able to update your metadata without a new app update were all discussed.
