Apple to remove unused apps from its store

 Apple has decided to remove an app that no longer works or is outdated from its App Store, the company wrote in a developer blog.

 
"We love helping customers discover innovative, useful and exciting apps on the App Store. With more than two million apps available and around 100,000 new and updated apps submitted each week, there's something for everyone," the company wrote to the developers.
 
"To make it easier for customers to find great apps that fit their needs, we are implementing two suggestions from the developer community starting September 7," it added.
 
"We are implementing an ongoing process of evaluating apps for these issues, notifying their developers and removing problematic and abandoned apps from the App Store," the company also said.
