App Store Rejection: App Icon and follow user icon are similar to Apple Maps folow icon #1
Apple Rejected the App. The reason:
8.3 - Apps that appear confusingly similar to an existing Apple product, interface, or advertising theme will be rejected
Your app contains features that mimic the Apple Maps icon at the bottom right corner of the Maps iOS interface or behavior.
