Iphone devs: how to avoid rejection by Apple

Here are some very handy guidelines for avoiding rejection in the Appstore:

  • Must have more than “minimal user functionality”
  • Cannot transfer excessive data volumes over cellular network
  • Cannot simulate failures or errors
  • Cannot use PhoneGap
  • Cannot duplicate the functionality of a built-in app
  • Cannot collect personal data without permission
  • Must notify the user on internet connection failures
  • Cannot facilitate a checkout, transaction, or purchase
  • Unfiltered internet access must be rated 17+
  • Avoid public figures, celebrities, and Apple
  • Free/Lite version can’t up-sell (tricky)
  • Cannot go anywhere near Apple’s trademarks
  • Cannot mention prices in Description or app
  • No contests, giveaways, or charity donations
