        There was a problem concerning our user to sign in the App. Here is the message we got...

         

        ''We noticed that your app requires users to register or log in to access features that are not account-based.

         

        To resolve this issue, please revise your app to let users freely access your app’s non account-based features.

         

        Apps may not require users to enter personal information to function, except when directly relevant to the core functionality of the app or required by law.

         

        You should allow users to freely access your app’s non account-based features. For example, an e-commerce app should let users browse store offerings and other features that are not account-based before being asked to register, or a restaurant app should allow users to explore the menu before placing an order. Registration must then only be required for account-specific features, such as saving items for future reference or placing an order.''

         

        Our customers buy fishing spot with a lot of related informations. In order to  refer to these information, the customer has an account and keep all his purchase in a ''librairy''.  So the registration is needed.

         

        We do not know how to deal with this matter...Our App is already on Google Play and everything is fine...

         

        Can you please help?

          It's not Google Play. Apple has its own rules. If you want to have access to Apple's market, you have to play by Apple's rules.

            Based on what you've said, and the rejection you've recieved, my guess would be that Apple believes there is no reason why users couldn't browse the fishing spots that they could buy, before they buy anything; requiring users to sign up/log in to purchase a spot is acceptable, but forcing them to log in / sign up just to window shop generally is not.

             

            A good reference here might be something like the amazon app, where anyone can download the app and browse all of the products that amazon has for sale without needing to log in or sign up. Users only need to create or log into an account when they actually purchase an item.
