Is there a link or somewhere to report App Store rule violations? Specifically, when an app is using push notifications to send you advertisements/promotions, despite this being explicitly against Apple's rules.
The closest thing I've found is a form to report intellectual property violations, and I can't find anything else that's close.
5.6 Apps cannot use Push Notifications to send advertising, promotions, or direct marketing of any kind.
Recently, AppGratis was removed from the store for this (and other) violations.
I'm stick and tired of one app in particular, Real Racing 3, sending me ads to 'buy' in-game cars. You need notifications turned on in the app because of other game-related mechanics, such as when a friend challenges you to a race or your car is repaired. There is no option I can find to opt-out of the advertising messages.
Contacting the developer (EA, FireMonkey) will do no good because they don't care, so I'm hoping if this gets the attention of Apple then they will enforce their own rule.
Of course I just could remove the app and no longer use it, but it bugs me that small developers can't get away with it and big ones get a free pass.
