Apple rejected FOUR of our apps that use Game Circle today

Four of our apps were rejected out of hand by Apple, all for the same reason. It's getting more and more difficult to get apps past Apple which use Game Circle, shame because we like Game Circle a lot. Here's the reason, any help / feedback much appreciated. Thanks Reasons 10.6: Apple and our customers place a high value on simple, refined, creative, well thought through interfaces. They take more work but are worth it. Apple sets a high bar. If your user interface is complex or less than very good it may be rejected 10.6 We found the following issues with the user interface of your app: The app opens a web page in mobile Safari for logging in, then returns the user to the app. The user should be able log in without opening Safari first. Specifically, we noticed the app brings users outside to Safari in order to login to "Amazon GameCircle."

What's the latest? Apple still aren't budging. I've asked Apple to confirm that they will now reject ALL apps that use the Amazon Game Circle SDK. If they can't agree to this then they have no right to reject my apps. They have said they will schedule a phone call with me. I'd rather Amazon dealt with this.

Okay - no response from Amazon and no dice with Apple. This leaves me no choice but to remove Game Circle from my Apple apps - not what I wanted to do.

Okay, can't wait any longer. Have had a phone conversation with Apple. These apps won't be approved until Amazon change the way the login process works for Game Circle. Specifically they suggest that Amazon implement the login at a web view rather than taking the into Safari. I have now removed Game Circle from these apps and re-submitted. I am now also in the process of removing Game Circle from my other Apple apps.
