Geek & Dad’s first iPhone app has been submitted to the iPhone App Store!
The stories about getting approved range from “no big deal” to “nightmare!” so who knows what we will experience. It’s a really simple application and Dad spent hours reading on all the requirements for using Apple®’s trademarks, how to refer to the App Store, getting approved for the on the iPhone App Store logo artwork, making sure to use it within all the guidelines (no smaller than 40 pixels tall, specified amount of padding around it, watch out for background, no alternating of color or content…etc etc). Testing on G&D’s iPod touch® running the 3.0 beta of the iPhone OS and then testing on Dad’s iPhone running the latest public release of the iPhone OS, version 2.2.1. Etc. and So On. Hours as I said.
So, hopefully all that hard work will pay off and find us approved in a reasonably quick fashion.
The app itself is a very small but Geek and fun making it and has hopes that it’ll actually sell a few copies…
Anyway, once it’s live on the App Store, we’ll post to announce the product formally.
