Apple Pulls First Subscription-Based Game Portal

In a surprising move to subscribers and the developer alike, Apple unceremoniously removed Big Fish Game’s subscription service from the App Store. After a lengthy approval process for the monthly fee service, Apple notified Big Fish Games, Inc. that the App had been pulled, offering no explanation for the removal after only five days in the App Store.

Thelen did concede that Apple was slow to convince that a monthly fee would work for games. "It took longer than usual to be approved."
