WSJ, Kobo falling in line in Apple’s App Store, Google Books is out | 9to5Mac | Apple Intelligence

Check the post link below for speculation about Google Books being pulled for violating the Apple App Store policy

The WSJ is reporting that Apple is laying down the law on apps that try to link externally to other payment systems in the App Store.  The WSJ’s own app and Kobo, another eBookseller were both forced to remove external links to payment stems from within their apps.

In a pair of moves that suggest Apple Inc. is enforcing rules for selling content on its devices, Kobo Inc., the Canadian e-book retailer, and The Wall Street Journal said Sunday they will no longer sell content directly to customers through their apps for Apple devices.
