App Store Requirements Question


  • I noticed some revisions in the app submission requirements.

    1. May I refuse to add touch support as long as I state it on my application? This includes whether it is easy to add or not. Can I simply not add it?

    2. I can't seem to get a clarification on the snapped re-sized versions of applications. Do I have to make the app designed to work in the snap mode? Or can I let it be broken if the user makes it that small size. It is a pain to develop for and I rather the user not enter that mode.

  • For #1, cert requirement 6.13.4 states that you must clearly warn customers in your app description if you don't fully support touch. For #2, the requirement was removed in v5 of the certification requirements

    It's important to remember that customers are still entitled to give your app bad reviews if they don't feel that the app is useful for them. You should try to think through your customers' scenarios and make sure the app fulfills their needs as well as it can..
