Apple's recent efforts to clean up the App Store have recently found a new target: templated apps. Web site "wrapper" apps have been against the guidelines for quite some time now but after WWDC this year the review guidelines were updated to also disallow templated apps.

I don't particularly agree with this decision, especially when it's being applied with such a broad stroke. Templating isn't particularly the problem here, spam is and templated apps are not necessarily all spam.

I'd much rather have seen Apple tackle the apps which dishonestly charge subscriptions for fake services. That seems like a much better use of resources.
