Apple placed App store guidelines but care to relaxed restrictions

Apple on Thursday relaxed restrictions on the development tools developers can use to create iOS apps, and published its “App Store Review Guidelines,” which outlines how the company reviews apps.

Apple said on Thursday that the new, published guidelines are intended to make its process more transparent and the guidelines include rules and examples across a range of iOS development topics, including user interface design, functionality, content, and the use of specific technologies.

This guidelines are made as lots of kids are downloading lots of apps and parental controls don’t work unless the parents set them up and many don’t, for that reason to keep an eye out for the kids.

Few months back, Apple had released an updated version of its iPhone developer program license which banned private APIs and required apps to be written in Objective-C, C, C++, or JavaScript as executed by the iPhone OS WebKit engine.

On thursday Apple said that they will made some adjustment in particular about relaxing all restrictions on the development tools needed to create iOS apps, as long as the resulting apps do not download any code. Well this can give developers the flexibility they want, while preserving the security they need.
