User Generated Content

I’m getting my app into the app stores. Since I have user generated content (a feed where they can post pictures) Apple is needing me to incorporate these aspects:

  • A method for filtering objectionable content
  • A mechanism for users to flag objectionable content
  • A mechanism for users to block abusive users

Does anyone know if this is possible? Or should I simply remove the “feed” portion of the app? (It’s not completely necessary for the apps function but it would be nice to have)

If you use a non-details layout then there should be an in-app filter option.

You can add a form button for users to flag a post, then as an admin you read all reports and decide what to do next with the post (letting the creator know about it, delete the post, etc.).

You can theoretically add a table to store all blocked users, then use a relation to check if the signed-in email is among those blocked users. If the relation is not empty, don’t show them any tabs.


Thank you for all the information! For the filter option I think it’s asking me to make filtering an option for the user. (Like the user can filter the feed) Is that what you are referring to?

I’ll have a look at the other recommendations tomorrow. Thanks again.

Yes, it should be an option for the user.

Perfect thank you so much.
