    Earlier this year, I was among the MMi staff writers who began covering Apple's slow but gradually escalating attention on those who prey on domain names looking to financially capitalize on their possession in the future - domain name squatters, if you will.

    It's been a year and a half since Rock Your Phone first made live their Rock.app store for 3rd party iPhone apps. Over the past few months, the folks who own both stores (Jay Freeman and Mario Ciabarra) have been working through a huge deal, which has come to public fruition tonight - Cydia is acquiring Rock. Well, technically, SaurikIT, LLC is acquiring Rock Your Phone, Inc (let's use correct business names here).

    It looks like a Google Voice app banned from the App Store may be coming back under the new relaxed guidelines. Sean Kovacs, developer of the GV Mobile app, emailed Apple after the rules for app approval were posted yesterday, since none of the updated provisions applied to his app. Seems like he got a positive response: he tweeted that the app "will most likely get back in," and if all goes ...

Apple, in the past, has been very inconsistent in its approval process, almost mysterious at times. Many developers have complained, asking Apple for some clarity. With the release of this document, Apple has finally set some guidelines in stone (almost). The ...
