More Apple NDA Problems for Developers

September 28th, 2008 by Arjan Olsder Posted in Platforms: iOS | No Comments »

Though we reported before about the strict rules in the NDA for iPhone
and iPod Touch mobile game developers, complaints are now more focussed
at at rejected software.

As soon as mobile games are rejected from Apple’s App Store, Apple starts sending out warnings to developers to notify them that rejected mobile games also fall under the Non Disclosure Agreement (NDA). This means that there is no news on which games are rejected. Apple’s quality guidelines are vague which means that developers limit themselves to releasing games that have the highest chance of being approved. This results in less creativity.

Previously, developers still had the possibility to sell rejected mobile games outside the App Shop. They did this by using the possibility to distribute beta code. This way developers still earned a bit from their work. Now, Apple has closed down that option for all rejected titles.
