Never Do This

Let’s suppose you’re developing an iPhone app — say, a game. It’s completely playable but you’ve got a cool new feature that you’re thinking about putting into a future version. You could just leave it out altogether, or you could add a little button for that feature which brings up a nice little alert like, “This feature coming soon in version 2.0!”.

Never do this.

This makes your app look incomplete in the eyes of the iTunes Store review team, which makes them reject your app, which make Mach cry. Oh wait, sorry, I was projecting there…

The good news is that I already resubmitted on Sunday so with any luck, Boom Dice will be approved soon.

    Sorry to hear that a good lesson had to come at the expense of your app pal. To be honest, I didn’t like the taunt of the 2.0 features. But I didn’t feel it was my place to comment. Either way, I am glad you got it fixed and back into the store for approval. A good lesson for the rest of us. Thanks as always for sharing.

    Yikes…. I was thinking the exact same thing when I saw the video. I was like “oh drat… It’s not finished yet” but was like “wait… did he mention it was selling??”

    But yeah… this post clears everything up. Indeed… will keep THAT in mind when I do my how-to-draw anime website… XD

    Hey, btw… if you need any anime artists…

    Glad it all makes sense now. I’m having fun doing all the art myself (it’s one of the advantages of doing this sort of thing as a hobby), but if I ever need an anime artist, I’ll keep that in mind. =)
