App rejected because of undocumented API: UIProgressHUD

When we first released Loqly (http://loqly.me) in Dec 2010, we had used UIProgressHUD to show please wait type hourglass messages to the user when the app was doing something in the background. UIProgressHUD is the same API which Apple internally uses in their apps to show the nice translucent hourglass.

Unfortunately, Appstore took 5 minutes to slap us with a rejection. Worst part is, I had been coding all night and submitted the app at 5AM in the morning in the hopes of getting at least 3-4 hour nap. But 5:10 AM, my iPhone gave me the new mail sound. And there it was…the dreaded rejection email !! I was so tired by that time that I let my team know about the rejection and just passed out.

Next day after doing some research, I came across MBProgressHUD by Jonathan George. It is an excellent replacement for UIProgressHUD and in fact has much more functionality. We just added Jonathan’s code and we were approved in no time!!
