    Default AppStore Rejection Letters are Not Public Info
    With the recent string of AppStore rejections devs of apps like Podcaster have been posting the typically flimsy rejection reasons given by Apple. It appears Apple doesn't like the bad press they have received because of this and now have made it clear the contents of Apple rejection letters may not be shared with a new line in the letters:

    "THE INFORMATION CONTAINED IN THIS MESSAGE IS UNDER NON-DISCLOSURE"

    While it is not totally clear whether or not the original NDA that developers are required to sign covers these rejection letters there is no doubt now that if your app is rejected from the AppStore Apple expects you to keep quite and not share the details. You don't want to feel the wrath of Apple do you?

    Could someone please point me to a copy of the original non-disclosure agreement? Or is that under wraps too?

    Doesn't them rejecting the app make the NDA not exist? or does apple just own you no matter what?

    I'm thinking the only time the nda is lifted would be if you got completely kicked out of the developers program.

    Today @ PC World Apple App Store Ban: Android, Here's Your Chance


    The guys at Google have got to be smiling. A double shot of iPhone App Store banning has mobile developers fuming -- and could provide just the ammo Android needs for its upcoming launch.

    Apple has officially kicked two popular apps out of its App Store over the past days. Podcaster, a program that lets you circumvent iTunes to directly download podcasts, found out it was getting the "REJECTED" stamp just before the weekend. Now, the makers of the popular tethering tool NetShare are sharing a similar plight. NetShare disappeared without notice in August. Its creators now say they've finally been told they too are banned for good.

    Developers such as Fraser Speirs, who crafted the Flickr browsing app Exposure, are taking strong stands in light of the news. "I will never write another iPhone application for the App Store as currently constituted," Speirs states in a recent blog. "Apple's current practice of rejecting certain applications at the final hurdle -- submission to the App Store -- is disastrous for investor confidence," he says.

    Now enter Android. The open source mobile system is set to hit the market any moment, with the much-anticipated T-Mobile device expected to be revealed within weeks. While Google's operating system has suffered its own share of blips along the way, the anger over Apple may be just what it needs to attract positive attention. Android's app "market," as it's being called, will not be moderated or controlled. Instead, any developer will be able to register, directly upload his product and enter a description, and presto -- it's live. Users, not administrators, will vote on apps and determine their placement within the site.

    If the first Android phone hits stores soon, the timing could not be better. At a moment when a dictatorship-style approach is causing such grief, the notion of a democratic alternative may have more appeal than ever expected.

    Apple really are killing the iPhone slowly, but jailbreaking revives it again.

    Just distribute all the apps that get rejected through Installer.

    Soz Cydia, but your not good enough yet, gives me ALOD 95% off the time.

    This may be just the kind of thing that will drive app developers to the android platform.

    they rejected my app because they said they wanted to steal my idea!

    jj at least the developers are not in the dark anymore so they could possible fix it up and re submit it.

    It could happen. I think its just a matter of drivers and thing of that nature.........the whole thing is open source and every part of android should be available for anyone who wants it by the end of the year.

    Its Linux you can put that on anything LOL!
