So, Google’s chairman, Eric Schmidt, is at it again.
In a pretty long interview with ndtv.com he implied that Google Now not being in the iOS App Store wasn’t in Google’s hands by saying:
You’ll need to discuss that with Apple…Apple has a policy of approving or disapproving apps that are submitted into its store, and some of the apps we make they approve, and some of them they don’t.
Sounds like Apple doesn’t want Google Now on iOS, right?
Wrong. Here’s Apple’s statement to CNet (no link, because CNet):
…the Google Now application was never submitted for approval to our App Store…
Interestingly, Google itself have now confirmed this, also telling CNet:
Yes, I can confirm for you: We have not submitted Google Now to Apple’s App Store.
I’m sure Eric Schmidt will issue a statement shortly…right.
