Washington - Apple has announced a clean-up of its App Store eight years after launching the service. "To make it easier for customers to find great apps that fit their needs, we want to ensure that apps available on the App Store are functional and up-
"We are implementing an ongoing process of evaluating apps, removing apps that no longer function as intended, don't follow current review guidelines, or are outdated."
Apps that crash on launch are to be removed immediately, Apple said.

The apps can return to the web store after the 30-day deadline once an update has been submitted and approved.
