David Quattrone, chief technology officer Cvent, on the Apple App Store issues for event apps
Although we understand and acknowledge why Apple is doing this, that does not mean we necessarily liked it initially.
CrowdCompass by Cvent has spoken to Apple several times to fully understand this new policy and to help both sides understand the impact of this change for our industry.
Due to the large presence of CrowdCompass event apps on the App Store, we were one of the first companies to be approached by Apple, giving us time to understand this change and react in what we believe is the best possible way.
We think our solution under the new app rules is actually more robust than before, because going forward there will be several options available for publishing your event app; including in our new ‘container app’ called AttendeeHub, which is shared with other customer events, or it can be downloaded as a unique, stand- alone app for your company which you can publish yourself.
