It’s now officially official, the VLC application for iPhone and iPad has been pulled from the App Store after several months of contention. Some of the contributors to the open-source VLC application believe that Apple’s App Store isn’t compatible with the GPL (GNU Public License) components of the app. Here’s what the most vocal, Rémi Denis-Courmont, had to say:
VLC made it’s way onto the iPad first in September and then hit for the iPhone and iPod Touch in October. It was a good short run for the app and if you are one of the ones who was able to download the app within the past three months enjoy it as no one further will have the ability to get their VLC-on on their iOS devices.
