Apple The situation regarding Apple's App Store for the iPhone is getting weirder by the day. Several applications have been rejected from the App Store based on seemingly dubious claims such as duplication of functionality (even though they didn't duplicate anything), or alikeness to default applications. Two such cases made headline news over the past few days; Podcaster and MailWrangler. The developers of these applications openly protested against these rejections, and apparently, Apple doesn't really like that. Apple now reiterates that rejections fall under the NDA, prohibiting developers from speaking up about rejections.

In the 10.2 days I was trying to build a font browser that worked like iTunes. Apple beat me to the punch with font book.app I could at that point have ranted and pitched a bitch or moved on to the next project. It was just something that I was doing for fun. SO that is what a GROWN MAN does. Besides most of my good ideas came from the Aaron Hillegas book.


And did Apple prevent from releasing your application? Or did the prevent end users from running it?

For a self-proclaimed "GROWN MAN," you're having a bit of trouble grasping the concept of analogy.
