Please do not post the same thing multiple times. The board software automatically flags certain posts as needing moderator attention. This happens the most often for new users. I'm pretty sure this is made clear at the time you attempt to post. Posting the same thing over and over again just makes that many more posts the moderators have to weed through later. This makes us sad. Don't make us sad. If your post/thread doesn't appear, just wait a while. Don't post it again. If it hasn't shown up by the next day, then you can try again. I normally go through posts in the mornings, and try to check a few times throughout the day, but I'm not here 24/7. There will typically be a significant delay before posts are approved. Just be patient.
App Store Rejected: Apple asking to go into iBookStore
I am a new iOS developer + experienced programmer + this is my first time submission.
I created a story app and submitted it last week, after being In Review for more than a day, Apple have finally replied with the following email:
--- We've completed the review of your app, however, we cannot post this version to the App Store because the primary purpose of your app is to display content that is a book. Such content is more appropriate for iBookstore.
Therefore, we encourage you to submit your content to iBookstore. There are two options for developing iBookstore content: working with Apple and working with Apple-approved iBookstore Aggregators.
To work with Apple on iBookstore distribution, first verify that your content meets the following requirements:
- ISBNs for all titles you intend to distribute - Is in EPUB format, passing EpubCheck 1.0.5
For more information, including additional requirements and how to apply for iBookstore, please visit .
For details on working with iBookstore Aggregators, visit .
Please feel free to reply to this email if you have any questions about this information or would like to discuss it further. ---
Since my app can not be a book, is not published anywhere, there is no ISBN and simply contains stories, publishing it as a book into the iBookStore is simply not appropriate.
Also, this doesn't make sense to me as I can see there is a Books category in the iTunes, where there are thousands of books already present, even those which are in public domain as well or replicas of those already there in iBookStore.
How should I pursue this with Apple now, i have yet to reply their email? Any help would be highly appreciated.
