The Rewound music player app, which went live on the App Store last week, has gone off the shelves, according to an article published by Media. It is reported that the app allows users to have an iPhone-like music playback interface. Apple dropped the app because it was accused of copying the iPod’s design and charging for Apple Music features, which could lead users to mistake the app for Apple’s official software product, the post said.
But Rewound points out that the app has a base interface that doesn’t look like an Apple app at all, and the iPod classic skin isn’t pre-installed, and users have to download the installed software before they can download it.
Although Apple went off Rewound, developer Louis Anslow said he would try to bring the app back in some way. He said on the Rewound continued development page on the GoFundMe page that he would try to get Rewound back on the shelves with some tweaks on the App Store. But the circumstances are not clear.
