Fully Licensed Commodore 64 Emulator Rejected By Apple App Store

Commodore 64 εξομοιωτής στο AppStore? Όχι αν η Apple είναι στο τιμόνι… η εφαρμογή απορρίφθηκε διότι όπως λέει η Apple εγκαθιστά ή ανοίγει άλλες εφαρμογές!


Quick update on the Apple App Store approval process: Shaken babies are OK, but inevitable moneymakers like a licensed, legal Commodore 64 emulator are rejected.

Why the rejection, you ask? Here’s Apple’s take, form letter style:

Thank you for submitting C64 1.0 to the App Store. We’ve reviewed C64 1.0 and determined that we cannot post this version of your iPhone application to the App Store because it violates the iPhone SDK Agreement; “3.3.2 An Application may not itself install or launch other executable code by any means, including without limitation through the use of a plug-in architecture, calling other frameworks, other APIs or otherwise. No interpreted code may be downloaded and used in an Application except for code that is interpreted and run by Apple’s Published APIs and built-in interpreter(s).”
