Apple The saga surrounding Apple's policies concerning the App Store hasn't reached its climax just yet. After several seemingly arbitrary application rejections, high profile developers quitting iPhone development, and Apple adding a non-disclosure clause to its App Store rejection emails, we now have another high-profile Mac developer contemplating giving up iPhone development. Craig Hockenberry, of The Iconfactory, has written a public letter to Steve Jobs, detailing his worries that Apple's restrictive App Store policies are detrimental to the young platform.

I don't think it's unreasonable to point out that if Apple specifically states that it won't support certain kinds of apps, then it's foolish to get outraged when they won't support your app.

Where there's a problem is when Apple isn't explicit about it, and gives you a surprise.

And of course, there's nothing wrong with having a general feeling of outrage about this whole business. I spend a few minutes every day being outraged and disappointed about Apple's iPhone strategy.
