Rejected! 10 iPhone Apps That Didn't Make Apple's App Store
Posted 22 February 2009 - 09:43 PM
I started using Macs in 1983, at one point in time I have six Macs on my desk. Today, I am clean and free from Macs... There's something wrong with the Apple Culture, Apple is till living with their heads stuck between their legs. Originality and Creativity is good, but it's not as important as productivity, iPhone therefore is not important for real world applications.

All of this excluding the Podcaster application; it is very well executed. Apple is smart to lock applications like that down when it comes to business sense.

Honestly, most of the things on this list are already in the app store, so rather than setting themselves as gods, the app store screening people seem to have adapted to people's demands.

You simply should have read the agreement *YOU* signed, when you became a developer.
You didn't see the part about:
Duplicating built-in apps?
Violating design standards?
If you didn't like what you signed... don't sign it.

The GOVERNMENT can't stop you (but even they do).
Private companies *CAN* stop you from seeing obscene pictures on their products.
You need to re-read The Constitution a few more times.

So you *DO* want to buy more and more apps that are just farting, vomiting, and useless, right?

There *IS a way. Just ask me. (Or anyone that can read the simple agreement that *YOU* signed when you became a developer.)
Can I use the home button to play sounds? No.
Can I use off button to make run apps? No.
Can I use the volume button to change screens? No.
Can I use the speaker to reboot the phone? No.
Can I use the camera to record sound? No.
Can I use the headphone jack to end my app? No.
The real question is: Why would you *WANT* to????

I intensely dislike Apple. Don't like their product. Don't like their users. Don't like their smug stores, the culture, or the company. I don't like any of it. As the most valuable company on Earth, Apple is now "The Man," and those of us chugging away on Microsoft & other competitors are the "Avant Garde" ones. ...Pretty weird, when you think about it.

...because it's useful. I have an Evo, and when I yank the headphones, Pandora shuts off instead of immediately blaring out the phone speaker. Considering I'm usually unplugging the headphones because I'm done listening, or need to concentrate or hear something, it's actually an extremely nice feature...and one you poor Iphone zombies will never have, thanks to Apple.

- it provides a map with the pharmacies closest to your locations.... for anywhere in Europe
- yeah, you can pan-zoom etc.. if you want to find out the pharmacies in a remote Helsinki suburb
The database is absolutely unique and it took over a year to build, the app is very simple: you run it and it shows the closest pharmacies ... what else as a user would you want? Maybe I am getting confused but simplicity was once an Apple mantra? or not?
The great thing is that in their App Store Review Guidelines they say they would fail applications that are too complex (this is in the first paragraph . in bold !).... go figure !
Now if this is considered by Apple as not worthy of their store maybe it is time to look at alternatives, Microsoft and Android are a lot more interested in apps these days

It is typical Apple, do as you are told, use what we tell you to use and think how we tell you to think. You are lucky that we have allowed you to borrow our products! They are a dictatorship, that re-invent existing technology, and try to cage human diversity. Thank God for Google's Android!
