Apple "Apple has changed its iOS developer guidelines, adding a clause (on September 12, a source tells me) that reads: 'Apps that display Apps other than your own for purchase or promotion in a manner similar to or confusing with the App Store will be rejected.' That's a change that could have wide-reaching effects, especially on promotion models that offer developers a paid top slot on app recommendation offerings like FreeAppADay, Daily App Dream and more." Weird clause. Doesn't really seem to address any issue I can think of.

I think this obviously aimed at preventing Google from using their Maps app (which come Christmas will be quickly installed on a huge percentage of iDevices) as a foothold onto the platform and method of promoting/pushing people onto Google services and away from Apple ones.
