Apple Policy Breaks Panic’s Transmit iOS App

Transmit iOSThe latest version of Transmit for iOS has lost all share sheet-based uploads because of an Apple policy regarding iCloud Drive, says developer Panic. Until now the FTP app has exploited iOS 8’s Extensibility functions to let people upload files to several storage services, such as iCloud Drive or Dropbox. Panic explains that it was informed that an app can’t upload content to iCloud Drive unless a file was created within the app itself; the developer insists that there is nothing about iCloud Drive in Apple’s iOS Data Storage Guidelines.

Panic notes that it had to remove all “Send To” share sheet options because iCloud is automatically listed on the sheet and can’t be removed. It’s hoping that a blog post on the issue will get Apple’s attention, and allow Transmit to either resume full functionality or drop iCloud from the share sheet.

Apple is typically strict about developer policies, but will sometimes reverse course. In October, it decided to allow calculator widgets in the Notification Center after a brief ban.
