Application Store Only: Section 7.2 causes it to be obvious that any programs developed using android developer SDK may be openly distributed with the Application Store, which Apple can reject an application unconditionally, even when it meets all of the formal needs revealed by Apple. If you make use of the SDK as well as your application is declined by Apple, you are prohibited from disbursing it through competing application stores like Cydia or Rock Your Phone.
Ban on Reverse Engineering: Section 2.6 prohibits any reverse engineering (including the sorts of reverse engineering for interoperability that courts have acknowledged as a good use under copyright law), in addition to something that would “enable others” to reverse engineer, the SDK or iPhone OS.
No Trying out Any Apple Items: Section 3.2(e) may be the “ban on jailbreaking” provision that received some attention if this was introduced this past year. Remarkably, however, it seems to stop designers from trying out any Apple software or technology, not only the iPhone, or “enabling others to do this.Inch For instance, this would mean that iPhone application designers are forbidden from making iPods interoperate with open source, for instance.
You won’t, by way of the Apple Software, services or else create any android developer or any other program that will disable, hack, or else hinder the safety Solution, or any security, digital signing, digital legal rights management, verification or authentication systems implemented in or through the iPhone operating-system software, ipod device Touch operating-system software, this Apple Software, any services or any other Apple software or technology, or enable others to do this
Kill Your Application Whenever: Section 8 causes it to be obvious that Apple can “revoke digital certificate of all of your Programs anytime.Inch Jobs has confirmed that Apple can remotely disable apps, despite they’ve been installed by customers. This contract provision would seem to permit that.
We Never Owe You Greater than Fifty Dollars: Section 14 claims that, regardless of what, Apple should never be prone to any developer in excess of $50 in damages. That’s pretty outstanding, thinking about that Apple holds a developer’s reputational and commercial value in the hands-it is not as although the developer can achieve its existing clients elsewhere. Therefore if Apple botches an update, accidentally kills your application, or leaks your whole customer list to some competitor, the Agreement attempts to cap you at the expense of the nice dinner for just one in Cupertino.
