ALMS Countdown Approved in Record Time

Much to my surprise my 2 new iPhone apps were approved today. This must be a new record for the App Revew process -- according to the history the American Le Mans Series (ALMS) Countdown app started review at 11:26 AM and was approved at 15:08 (3h42m), the NASCAR Countdown version took slightly longer, from 9:23 to 16:42 (7h19m). I suppose the fact that these are dead-simple apps with only 2 views may have had something to do with the fast turn around.

SharePics Rejected by Apple!

SharePics Rejected by Apple!

So I got my first rejection from the App Store today. According to their email it was rejected because - we cannot post your application because it appears to include features that resemble Polariod photographs. Polaroid has previously objected to other applications that include features that resemble Polaroid photographs, and believes that such features infringe its rights. Say what? Now, I'm the first to admit that my icon is a bit simple.

iPhone Tech Talk Seattle

Today is the Seattle iPhone developer talk event. I'm headed for the ferry in a few minutes and figured I would give the Wordpress iPhone app a try. I'll update this post as I have time today. Well, it was a long day! I used twitter a bit, but didn't have a chance for any longer updates here. Here are my impressions and short notes from the sessions I attended. I attended 4 presentations: UI Design Essentials, Adding In App Purchase, Core Data, Testing and debugging and Networking.
