Commodore 64 app back in the App Store

Commodore 64 app back in the App Store In June, we reported that Apple had blocked a fully-licensed Commodore 64 emulator from the App Store, claiming it violated the iPhone SKD Agreement.
Today, developer Manomio has said the app is now available via the App Store, after it has been changed to meet the SDK terms.

At the time, Apple had said:

"We've reviewed C64 1.0 and determined that we cannot post this version of your iPhone application to the App Store because it violates the iPhone SDK Agreement 3.3.2. [An application] may not itself install or launch other executable code by any means, including without limitation through the use of a plug-in architecture, calling other frameworks, other APIs or otherwise. No interpreted code may be downloaded and used in an Application except for code that is interpreted and run by Apple's Published APIs and built-in interpreter(s)."


The app costs $5 and currently has 8 games available.

"We've reviewed C64 1.0 and determined that we cannot post this version of your iPhone application to the App Store because it allows for users to write and execute code for programs far superior to our own."

Fixed that for you.

LOL

...The real reason it was not approved is because the approvals are based on the results of a random number generator, and clearly have nothing to do with the rules they have posted.
