    I have an idea for an app, which would basically involve the users of the app to meet up and fight. Obviously I'd make them accept a ToS saying I'm not responsible for any outcomes etc. But would Apple allow it on the app store?

    I believe someone had a similar idea to yours a good time ago. I think they made a movie.

    I think you would need to contact each app store and ask.

    You can probably get away with something like that on android though(atleast for a while) since they are not as diligent as apple when it comes to initial submission reviews and the best part is that if the app gets banned it will still be active on the devices that have installed it. If my memory doesnt fault me there was a story from a few months ago where a racist app went viral got like 80,000 installs and got banned ofc but whoever made it is probaly still banking from it.
