Wi-Fi Sync Rejected by Apple

Posted by Jeff Campbell in "Apple Software (iPhone/iPod Touch/iPad)" @ 08:00 AM

http://www.appleinsider.com/article..._app_store.html

"Apple this week rejected "Wi-Fi Sync," a third-party application that allows the iPhone and iPod touch to sync wirelessly with iTunes."

Perhaps Apple has plans to do this themselves, since that is the only thing that makes sense after the developer was told by an Apple rep he wasn't "specifically in violation" of the iPhone OS developer agreement. But if you have a jailbroken iPhone you are in luck, since the developer is heading over to Cydia to sell his program for $9.99 USD. You can find out more about the program at the Wi-Fi Sync website.

Opera For the iPhone?

"Opera Software has submitted the iPhone version of its Mini browser to Apple for App Store approval, Opera said on Tuesday. That browser version was first shown at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona in February, and Opera has since worked hard at getting the product as much attention as possible."

In the past, apps have been rejected for duplicating functionality (which this would do) as well as for those not using webkit. But Tor Odland, Head of Communications at Opera thinks that it will be approved because "of the improved speed it offers compared to Safari and the fact that is already has 50 million users." I think he is kidding himself, why would Apple care if you had 50 million users? It certainly won't mean they will all become iPhone owners if they approve it. Matthew Miller over at ZDNet has some thoughts as to why Apple won't approve it, what are your thoughts?

No iDroid App For You!

"According to Techcrunch, iDroid, an app by Swavv Apps just got rejected from the App Store. It was a pretty innocent app as all it did was display the glowing red Droid eye and some slides about the Droid's capabilities, but you must admit that the refusal is not very surprising. I just don't know why Apple really cares though."

I don't know why Apple cares either, seems silly for something like this to be rejected, but I guess an app advertising a competing product crosses the line. What are your thoughts?

Where's Peeps?

"Peeps is not currently available in iPhone App Store - the application was rejected because Apple believes we are using their private Cover Flow implementation. We actually wrote our own implementation of Cover Flow, so we're hoping the decision will be overturned."

Apple rejected Peeps because the developer claimed he was using Coverflow. Apparently his implementation was good enough (along with his claim of using it in his app) that it got his app rejected. I'm not a fan of Apple rejecting apps (see the previous post about Pull My Finger) but in reality, if you claim to use a private API and your app gets rejected, you shouldn't be surprised. Of course, if you're Google, you have the right to use whatever API you want and your app will be warmly received and featured, but that's Google and, as unfair as it is, we're not.
