Facebook has released a new game application for iPhones. However, there is not a single game in it
An apple society suffers from its closed ecosystem, and it is a well-known fact that only a handful of individually approved applications slip through the sieve. However, the problem with this otherwise admirable approach has only emerged now that gaming streaming services are on the rise and other manufacturers are vying to provide players with a better offer. Similar services already violate the principles of the App Store in principle, as they offer access to cloud games that would otherwise have to be approved. The official game application from Facebook, which was released on iOS, but without any available games, also has problems.

According to Facebook, Apple simply rejected the application until the developers removed all the games. Although users on Android can enjoy not only a variety of successful titles, but also watching streams, in the case of iOS, fans are unlucky. The apple company began to flaunt itself again by trying to make the App Store a secure platform where users do not have to worry about potential danger, which led it to block any games in the case of Facebook Gaming. Although such a decision probably has nothing to do with the competitive environment, Apple's European Union is once again on its heels, according to which it should be possible to appeal.

"Unfortunately, we had to remove all the games in order to be able to get our app on the App Store at all. Users on iOS will have a worse experience than those on Android, which does not mean that we do not try to ensure the best possible environment for all 380 million players who actively enjoy our titles on Facebook Gaming, "said Operations Director Sheryl Sandberg. After all, this is nothing new, even instant pranks do not work on iOS, which can be found, for example, in chat and on Messenger. We can only hope that Apple will reconsider its positions and offer some adequate alternative, or allow this option again or grant an exemption.
