Apple "Continued issues with the App Store approval process are prompting developers to shun the platform entirely. Though there are tens of thousands of other developers pumping out over 100000 iPhone apps, will continued migration away from iPhone development result in less quality software for the platform? Worse yet, will users even care?"

So whats so private about the API? Why have an API you can't use? He has been using it for some time so it obviously isn't changing. Does it do something not able to be done by another means?

I don't buy that Apple is trying to control the user experience. If that were the case, they would only accept the best of apps or maybe the top X%, The rest would be rejected. But thats not the case. How many flashlight apps are there on the app store? How many do you really need? Plus, how do you justify asking a company to spend money on development when they have no guarantee that their app will even make it into the store?
