Attachments do not work with TA App anymore

I was never able to post multiple attachments using the TA app. But since iOS 9 it doesn't work for a single attachment anymore. After "choose files" the screen looks like that:

Damn. Just saw there is a similar thread. WTF? No app updates anymore?

For making a system to where apps that can alter someone's opinion on purchasing an app usually get rejected or generally disregarded.

I'm not sure if Apple exactly blocked further updates, but from replies to some posts, it's highly likely that TA could lose this app, and that wouldn't be good.

Thank you for your reply. I don't understand the reason because why should apple block the app of a TA that brings a lot of gamers to their store?
Would submitting an update as a new app raise the same problem like an regular update of the app?

It's more of the fact that it changes a user's possible purchase. I'm pretty sure if Apple advertises garbage, they don't want an app labeling that garbage as garbage, for example.

The TA app violates 2.25 and 2.26, without a substantial rework (which we don't have the budget for) kind of like AppShopper Social, it's not going to get updated. Sorry.
