App Store reviewers greenlight revised Dropbox-ready apps
The beta version of iCloud.com is now displaying Reminders and Notes apps, users observe. At the moment, the regular iCloud.com site is limited to Mail, Contacts, Calendar, Find My iPhone, and iWork. 9to5Mac notes that the beta code contains hidden strings asking a person to "first sign in to iCloud with the iOS 6 Beta," which may hint that iOS 6 and an updated iCloud.com will premiere simultaneously, possibly at WWDC in June.
Apple meanwhile appears to accepting apps built with a revised Dropbox SDK. Recently several developers complained of having apps rejected after taking advantage of Dropbox integration that let users sign up for accounts and buy extra storage space. Dropbox attempted to solved the problem with a new SDK, but rejections kept happening, even as it said it was "working with Apple" on the matter.
Revisions to the SDK kept coming, and while Apple has not made a statement on the situation, App Store reviewers are said to be giving the go-ahead after the latest SDK update. Apps are now being accepted, although some significant changes have been made to Dropbox integration. If a person doesn't have the official Dropbox app installed, a third-party app will now open a native login view, rather than jumping to Safari. There is also no longer ability to create an account without signing up separately.
