Re: [softwaredev-121] Question about new Apple agreement & iTunes ecommerce functionalit

From Steven's [really well put-together] presentation Tuesday, it sounded like
his interaction with Apple implied that particular wording still
holds. I agree that
you should contact him, but it seems to me that their notion of DLC as a new
AppStore app may not fit well with the model you've currently got in mind.
Re-releasing the original app with entirely new content to be re-approved by
Apple doesn't sit particularly well when that content is a wallpaper. That's
only my speculation based on his presentation, though.
