Is DPS content being blocked in China?

Is DPS content being blocked in China?

 

Our app was made available in App Store recently. It was a multi-issue mag app created using DPS Pro.

 

It works fine except when colleagues in mainland China alerted us that they can install the app but CANNOT DOWNLOAD the magazine issue. A salesperson there who initally could not open the magazine with the local 3G connection but managed when he used VPN.

 

Is there something amiss? Is DPS content restricted in China? Or maybe even the app itself that is being blocked?

    I don’t think large downloads are allowed through 3G anywhere. Could be wrong on that.

    My understanding is that while China allows users to download any app from Apple, the government restricts users from downloading eternal content such as folios at this time.

    oh wow Bob, that is a revelation! I was planning a series of education App's for China, so I'll avoid Multi-issue!

    Thats saved me some heartache.

    Cheers

    Allistair, please check that before making any decisions on it.

     

     

     

    I can’t say for sure that’s the case in China.

    We have users report download errors in China. So I know there is some blocking, but not sure if it's everything and via both 3g + wifi.
