So you are telling me its simply a book? Rejected (2)

2.21 Your app is primarily a book and is therefore not appropriate for the App Store, as noted in the App Store Review Guidelines. Books should be submitted to the iBookstore. To work with Apple on iBookstore distribution, first verify that your content meets the following requirements: - ISBNs are required for all paid titles you intend to distribute - Is in either: - EPUB format, passing EpubCheck 1.0.5 - Multi-Touch format, created by US ISBN Agency. Then complete the iTunes Connect Online Application. Note: An ISBN is not required if you have a free book agreement and choose to offer your book free on the iBookstore. Visit iBookstore Aggregators for information on working with the iBookstore aggregators. Jun 13, 2013 11:48 AM ==== My Response ==== How am i supposed to make an ibook? - There is a searching feature - There is sound effects - Buttons with additional information - Advertisements - IAP - Push Notifications - Notes for the user - Paint image creator I honestly do not understand why you would reject this when this application has lots of functionality and content that cannot be thrown into an ibook. It feels a little mean that i work 3-4 months putting this together, and in 4 days you reject it for being simply a book. I really wish you would take the time to take this application seriously as i have for 3 months. Thanks again apple.

You sound hacked off @Auggnet! Don't blame you. Don't worry though, lots of great advice on here, try and be patient, it'll be accepted.

fair enough! I dunno though, i think i'd hold back. You obviously know a lot about the subject and your competition. Are they all missing anything that you could provide? If you can think of anything, you might have an edge to get submitted and get to the top? Just a thought.

Okay. So I have figured out why your getting rejected? This is for the Game MineCraft? Have you gotten written consent from the minecraft as this game is copyrighted and could in get you into a legal battle if it gets published? If you get the minecraft too approve for publish it your golden.
