Hello Apple Developers,
Some of you have been through 4. 2 Design: Minimum Functionality Rejection, how did you overcome this issue? Do you use react native componants or IOS native componants?
We are already approved by the Play Store and by Facebook Review, Apple Store doesn't consider us appropriate yet, we need more native iOS functionalities.
What kind of native iOS functionality do you have in your app that was accepted by Apple Store?
We have been working on this App for over a year with 3 developpers.
We are respecting the minimum functionality guideline,
Our App promotes Emotional Intelligence among Couples. We bring couple psychology theories to our digital reality using gamification.
We have 5 menus.
1 Play the Love Tank Game, Send appreciation to your partner and fill up each other's Love Tank. (they can add handwriting notes + chat)
2 Play the Question Tank Game, Who knows who better? Discover your partner's preferences. Answer the questions and let your partner rate your answers.
3 Discover your Emotional Profil, fill in the questionnaires to learn which love languages you use in priorities and more.
4 Develop Social Support Chat with your Couple Friends using the app.
5 Search for therapists, Couple Experts around you.
What can we do to be approved? Thanks for your suggestions.

4. 2 Design: Minimum Functionality
Guideline 4.2 - Design - Minimum Functionality
Your app provides a limited user experience as it is not sufficiently different from a mobile browsing experience. As such, the experience it provides is similar to the general experience of using Safari. Including iOS features such as push notifications, Core Location, and sharing do not provide a robust enough experience to be appropriate for the App Store.
To resolve this issue, please revise your app to provide a more robust user experience by including additional native iOS functionality.
If you cannot - or choose not to - revise your app to be in compliance with the App Store Review Guidelines, you may wish to build an HTML5 web app instead. You can distribute web apps directly on your web site; the App Store does not accept or distribute web apps.
For more information about creating web apps, refer to the Configuring Web Applications section of the Safari Web Content Guide.
