The word is out, Apple has updated its App Store Guidelines. We counted and the word “rejected” appears 88 times, whew!
Actually, its not as bad as it seems, most of the information seems pretty straightforward, however one item did catch my eye: “Apps that duplicate Apps already in the App Store may be rejected, particularly if there are many of them, such as fart, burp, flashlight, and Kama Sutra Apps” Fart, burp and Kama Sutra … now that’s an odd combination.
On the “kids” front, the FTC’s implementation of new COPPA regulations on July 1 has been shaking up developers who own apps targeting children 13 and under, with its strict guidelines on what is and is not permissible and the understanding that the FTC will hammer violators. Interestingly, the app markets themselves seem to be somewhat immune to the regulation; however it is obvious that Apple has decided to formally let developers know they better play by the rules.
You can check it out yourself by going to the Apple Developer Portal.
