"It took persistence, but it took also some semantic trickery. Begley got the app approved because he removed the word "drone" from the name of the app and from its description. For the first three attempts, it was called Drones+, then Dronestream for the last two. This latest, successful time, it's called Metadata+, and Begley initially submitted it with no content or functionality, adding the archive of strikes later.

With those simple gimmicks, the app got the green light from Apple, which didn't raise any qualms about it.

That wasn't the case on the five previous attempts."
