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.

Gruber seems to think this clause is a bad idea.

I’m not sure I see any problem that Apple is solving here with this ban.... The App Store mostly presents you with what’s popular; an app/service like TouchArcade tries to present you with what’s good.
