Hi,

I have created an iPhone app which is rejected by apple due to "2.5 Apps that use non-public APIs will be rejected"

Can anybody help me regarding this.

In my app
1. i am using ASIHTTPRequest to post asynchronous call.
2. I am also sending user's iPhone unique device id to server using [[UIDevice currentDevice] uniqueIdentifier] to track app usage.
3. I also create a function which is load image from url and cache. the method which i create are as follow
-(void)loadFromURL:(NSURL *)url
{}
-(void)loadFromURL:(NSURL *)url afterDelay:(float)delay
{}


Can anybody help me where i am wrong.

Thanks in advance

Why not respect your customers' privacy and not do this? Or do you intend to ask their permission?

What is the private API that they claim you're using?

Phoning home with user details is apparently found in the majority of popular apps. I was surprised to run across this info recently:
