Jason Snell reporting on PCalc’s rejection for having the audacity of making a very nice Notification Center widget, in the fully supported way, that includes a little calculator:

This is an app that was accepted into the App Store, and is even being featured in the App Store as I write this. And now, a few weeks in, someone at Apple has decided that the app is too… what? Too useful?

Like the after-the-fact rejection of Launcher last month, this feels like the worst era of app review returning with a vengeance.

By limiting the usefulness of Notification Center widgets, what is Apple protecting itself or its customers from?
