Apple has removed Match.com's dating app

Apple has removed Match.com's iOS application from its App Store after the dating website failed to adhere to the storefront's subscription billing policies.

TechCrunch reports Apple deleted the Match.com app because it enabled users to pay for Match subscriptions with a credit card using an external link, bypassing the App Store's billing mechanisms and denying Apple its 30 percent cut of subscriptions and content sold via iOS applications. The report adds that Apple and Match.com are currently in talks on how to revamp the app to meet the App Store's guidelines.
