My First iPhone App rejection!

The horror!! Well this is a pain, I did have a feeling that this App may have trouble getting approved by Apple.

The problem is that it is basically an eBook albeit with narration done by yours truly.

Luckily I was using some standard free eBook code so I only wasted a couple of weeks tweaking this and formatting the story in HTML. Still...

The answer is to submit the story directly to the iBookStore. I will probably do this at some stage but you have to setup a separate iTunes account, financials, tax info, etc. which is time consuming.

If you want to have a look at what might have been and hear a sample page you can check it out at the Reefwing Software web site.

This is what rejection looks like:

Hello David,

Thank you for submitting Blood Bath to the App Store.

We've completed the review of your app, but cannot post this version to the App Store because it did not comply with the App Store Review Guidelines, as detailed below:

  • 2.21: Apps that are simply a song or movie should be submitted to the iTunes store. Apps that are simply a book should be submitted to the iBookstore
