GNU, GPL, Open Source Some people swore to me that just because the free-software General Public License (GPL) clashes with the Apple App Store's Terms of Service (ToS), didn't mean that Apple would actually pull down GPLed apps. Well, Apple just did. Remi Denis-Courmont, a Linux developer of the popular VLC media player, has just announced that Apple had pulled the popular GPLed VLC media player from its App Store.

OT - a question on the iOS developer licence

According to http://developer.apple.com/programs/ios/distribute.html
under "Compare iOS Developer Programs" you can get "Registered as an Apple Developer" for free. If you do that you can download the IDE and start coding. I have been told, you may also test your own application in an emulator which is part of the IDE. But you are not allowed to "Test on iPad, iPhone, and iPod touch".

If my intention is to devolop an application to run on a Mac, why should I develop it to run on an iOS emulator?

So, my question simply is, what that licence good for?
