I have admitted knowing that a product exists in the Apple App Store
that I did not put there that happens to be in part GPL'ed code. The
transgression is on the part of the person who puts the product in
there. I haven't violated the GPL, nor am I bound by the App Store
license since I don't produce software on that platform. My only concern
from the GPL side of things is that the author made the product source
code available upon request, which they gladly did.

How did I know about PocketBG being GNUBG? Because I read it on BGO

At worst Apple can remove the offending product. It is not my job to
police the Apple App store. That is Apple's job.
