iLoader is now dead bc fB made changes to their API

by Larry Chiang on May 15, 2015

Larry Chiang wrote a sequel to a book he read. He wrote, “What They Don’t Teach You At Stanford Business School“. He read his mentor’s, Mark McCormack’s book, What They Don’t Teach You At Harvard Business School. What They Don’t Teach You At Stanford Business School quotes Mark McCormack’s book in every chapter and even launched at Mark McCormack’s, IMG’s event: “New York Fashion Week” aka #NYFW. Initially, Chiang used his mentor’s book, What They Don’t Teach You At Harvard Business School, to start a company as an engineering major where he was encouraged to try doing sales as a CS major via ‘Pop Up Internships’. Duck9 was founded at Illini Tower and it helps students get a FICO credit card credit score over 750. Prior to the NY Fashion week book launch party, Chiang did a Harvard Law School keynote summarized by Harvard Business School to be: “What They Don’t Teach You at Stanford Business School“. Confused that Harvard would make fun of Stanford?? Well, his latest Harbus post was done #shirtless “Lets win SXSW, this SXSW” but the below article will help avoid and duck startup bankruptcy while not losing your shirt as a founder building on someone else’s API.

“Fashion Week runs September 10 – 17. It is no longer sponsored by American Express or Mercedes, but I will use both all week.”

Dear iLoader Users,

First of all, we would like to say thank you for your continued support of iLoader in the last few years. Without users like you, iLoader wouldn’t have had the success it had.

iLoader was the first app that we developed, therefore we are very sad to announce that we had to pull iLoader from the App Store and Google Play and discontinue support for the app. The reason behind this decision was that Facebook had made changes to their API which requires all apps to submit requests for approval in order to post on a user’s behalf. In order to submit the request we would have to have access to the iLoader Application ID. Unfortunately Facebook had removed our access from this. We’ve contacted Facebook many times but did not receive any response from them.

iLoader wasn’t developed overnight. It went through many phases of bug fixes and releases thanks to feedbacks from users like yourself. We could submit a request for a new Application ID from Facebook and rewrite the application from scratch. Unfortunately we do not have the resources to put towards this anymore due to funding. We’re also facing the fact that Facebook now see 3rd party apps such as iLoader as their competitor (even though it’s those 3rd party apps that helped build up their brand), so our chance of getting approved for another Application ID is even lower.

Again, we sincerely apologize for the abrupt end of life on iLoader. We sincerely appreciate all your supports over the last few years. We will keep you posted with any update we receive here on our Fan Page. If you have any other questions please direct them to our support team at

Thank you
Tektrify Team
