iPhone applications are complex, and it’s important to keep your eye on both the style and the function of your product. When you inspect your application, check these aspects:

  • No broken links in application, internal or external

  • Removed the word "beta" from anywhere in application or documentation

  • Any accessories to be used with the application are authorized by Apple

  • Application interface follows Apple Human Interface Guidelines

  • No long load times

  • Loads are covered by a graphical loading image or animation

  • Resource utilization is well within bounds and doesn’t make platform laggy

  • Application is sufficiently different from pre-existing applications

  • Application doesn’t duplicate functionality of Apple applications

  • Application doesn’t use trademarks of other companies (or similar names)

  • Application doesn’t interfere with iPhone function (such as draining battery life)
