    Default AppRejections.com Launched by Frustrated iPhone Developer



    Perhaps JR Raphael at PC World put it best: "iPhone App Rejected? There's a site for that"

    In what amounts to yet another visible expression of the frustration many possess in response to the substantial number of iPhone and iPod applications rejected by Apple for reasons that continue to escape anyone's understanding - including, at times, even some who work at Apple - a new website has been launched to serve as a repository for the would-be applications that never made it through the App Store's approval process.

    Enter AppRejections.com, a new Web site designed to track and catalog all the "unusual" and "unfair" rejections from Apple's App Store. Launched just days ago by UK-based iPhone developer Adam Martin, App Rejections takes a strong stance against Apple's methods.
    The new site essentially serves as a database for rejected applications and running commentary about Apple's reasoning for the rejection. And Martin doesn't pull any punches when referring to Apple and some of their "unskilled staff." Indeed, he lets lose and tells us exactly what he perceives to be Apple's "problem" on an app by app basis. His site is also set up for public feedback, something bound to attract other frustrated developers and iPhone users.

    On the whole, Martin's website may by new, but his argument isn't. He is simply the latest scorned developer looking for an outlet to vent. And instead of taking to a blog or penning a nasty email, he has set up a website that has already gained considerable traction and received a fairly large amount of media attention.

    There are now more than 100,000 iPhone applications available on the App Store. However, Apple has a secret, undocumented, unquestionable, random process for deciding which applications to allow onto the deck.
    Ultimately, will the existence of AppRejections.com actually achieve anything? Can it prompt Apple to revise or at least make more transparent the inner workings of its app approval process? Like most others, I'm not holding my breath for that moment to come. It is safe to say, however, that Martin is bound to get the attention of Apple - assuming he hasn't already. At present, Martin is embarking on the unenviable task of sifting through backlogs of all Apple rejections in hopes of offering coverage on his website for each documented app rejection.

    Since Apple point-blank refuses to document the criteria, or even to discuss the matter on anything except a case-by-case basis. I decided to collate all the known examples of rejected apps -- and so this site was born.

    Maybe he could start a cydia repo of all rejected apps, that would be cool.

    Where I agree that it is odd for a website like this to exist it could be used by Apple to review their rejections and maybe reverse some of their decisions.

    LMFAO. It happens. At least it was one wrong letter as opposed to his three errors. Also note that I wasn't referring to anything or anyone as being dumb. He did, and failed.

    I think this site is good for the devs, a place to express their frustrations. And also we get to know why Apple rejected the app instead of hear say.

    Yeah that would be best...


    Also, to everyone correcting grammar mistakes, get a life. This is a simple forum, not 12th grade English class.

    whos cares what is spelled how, and i agree just the plain website is a junk idea but it would be sweet if it was the rejected apps and like said before a repo to download them, how MMI has cydia products on the site to search and download. that would be nice

    Cydia and Rock don't get the same exposure as Apple's AppStore.
