App reject - Any idea why?

Sat May 13, 2017 9:29 am

Hello,

I just got another reject for one of my apps, here's the message:

About app:
- Dosn't access youtube
- Doesn't download videos
- It's just a guide containing text and an image

You cannot also guide users how to download videos or music from not authorized access to some APIs ;)

I see... but there are many apps (new & old) active on google play using the same thing, a guide
and also what does that have to do with the message I got? they say I use API or something but I don't. I mean how can they know if that's a guide to download?
Thanks

yes there's definitely no justice there :D but we can all try our luck xD

I already published one app in the account, I will try to add some more before trying this same guide again

True. The same app can be suspended on one GP account, and pass through on the second GP account. The app might go to the human moderator, or not. It depends on many factors, like:
- is it new account
- how old is the account
- were there previous suspends?
- does it have *red flag* words in the title, like: Minecraft, MP3, Downloader, etc.

When I appealed an app rejection, I sent some examples of other apps doing the same as I, the response from the Google moderator was this:

"Please keep in mind that any perceived compliance or non-compliance of other developer's apps has no bearing on the compliance of your owns apps. "
