>> I just downloaded the Orbitz app the other day and saw it had a special message about how it used your coordinates when allowing Location Services. Didn't know how they changed that message from the default, but thought it was cool.
>> Fast forward to today when Apple rejected my latest app update because my app DIDN'T do this. I just had a build approved within the last week, and didn't change anything with this but still got rejected today (different app reviewers have let interface guideline issues slip in the past that I had to fix in subsequent builds). Is this something that could be added via LiveCode? I compiled using LC 8.1.1 and Xcode 8.
>> Begin Rejection Letter From Apple:
>> Legal - 5.1.5
>> Your app uses background location services but does not clarify the purpose of its use in the location modal alert as required in the iOS Human Interface Guidelines.
>> We've attached screenshot(s) for your reference.
>> Next Steps
>> Please revise the NSLocationAlwaysUsageDescription value in the Info.plist to specify the intended purpose of using the user's location while the app is in the background.
> I think you need to update the ? Settings.plist ? file that is inside the Livecode app (/contents/Tools/Runtime/iOS) for each ? devices ?

Thank you, I just found the setting Apple was talking about in plist and made the change. That was easy enough with your suggestion, but not quite what I needed. 

The problem is that setting is for when Location Authorization Type is set to Always, but my app uses When In Use (not Always). 

I wonder if this was just an error on Apples behalf. I will submit a new build after the iTunes Connect holiday is over next week.
