not rejected... some questions

Hi i would like to ask some questions based in your experience. i havent submit an app in apple market. My application has lot of screens (520) with image menu,buttons menu etc all these menu open a html pro screens with contents from embeded html files.. they will reject it because they will think that is a web based app? in one menu i have 4-5 buttons that open some urls with safary.. is that ok?

Hi @Caslor, It's possible that they might, but the fact that the files are embedded in the project probably works in your favor. I think they object more to the apps that link to external URLs, because they figure a person should just use a browser for that! But if your content is engaging, and keeps people coming back to your app, it shouldn't matter if it's HTML based content. You can improve your chances by adding some things that use native iOS functionality, like maps or quizzes, or some of the other cool plugins that people have built. Anything that makes your app valuable to the end user is likely to impress the reviewers. Good luck! Mark

I have a theory that Apple are not as picky as they used to be about using webviews (i.e. html formatted pages). My reasoning is that the overlap between what you can do in the native programming language (IOS or Android) and what you can do in html with JavaScript is growing and it is less easy to tell the difference from a users perspective. I think Apple place more emphasis on whether users would 'love it', so good navigation, usability, pretty interface counts for a lot. Good luck @Caslor and let us know how it goes. Cheers, Alan
