    i hate java

    I've got a lot to read, but overall, it is a solid platform :bowdown:

    I won't get it because motorolla doesn't know how to make a battery for the life of them.

    eh

    documentation has a lot to gain IMO. There is literally nothing on In-App Purchase lol

    Yeah, none of the phone companies make their own batteries.

    i will be beyond pissed if my app is rejected for something that is NOT documented, which i have a feeling will happen.

    they require you to upload a screen shot of your "in app purchase" - but no where is it listed WHAT to take a screen shot of :ugh:

    no error codes anywhere lol

    ugh

    the approval process is gayer than aids...

    took them a month and a week to look at an app i submitted, they rejected it because i didn't "notify the user when they weren't connected to a cell network", so i fixed it and resubmitted... going on 2 weeks later, still nothing

    our first rejection was that we used the "Contact Add" button for adding prescriptions to a reminder - apparently you can only use it for contacts

    oh, but the iPod App built into the phone uses it in building On-The-Go play lists :greddy:

    I understand their reasoning for doing things, but fuck the process is annoying. We resubmitted last Monday - I got two emails saying it was tested yesterday (Dials home to register the APNS Token, sends me an email when they do). So, lets see if it finally goes through

    But, it was nice. I was able to resubmit as a free app + in-app purchase to unlock it. so i didn't have to waste time putting a second lite version up there.

    i am sure they will reject it for some queer reason with in-app purchase that isn't documented :greddy:

    there have also been stories about how in app purchases haven't been ready in time for the app to go live :rofl: so you have apps that don't work due to apples fuckup

    :rofl: you'd THINK that would be the case

    but all it is is a little round button with a "+" inside of it

    you know, something to "add" a data entry to another data entry

    but noooooooo
