Apple to publish guidelines for app approval
Apple says it will publish the guidelines its uses to determine which programs can be sold in its App Store.
Thursday's announcement follows two years of complaints from software developers about Apple Inc. using secret and seemingly capricious rules to block some applications.
The store has more than 250,000 applications for iPhones, iPads and iPod touches.
Apple also said it will lift restrictions imposed earlier this year on using third-party development tools.
