    Please elaborate. Are you saying you want to allow the end user of your app the option to download the mp3 file?

    You want in-app purchase of your music basically ? You want to make the ASApps store ?

    Read the StoreKit framework documentation :

    http://developer.apple.com/library/...roduction.html#//apple_ref/doc/uid/TP40008267

    However, make sure to review the agreement to make sure purchasing music is something that is allowed. Also, will you want to add this to the iPod app or will your own app be the method of playback ?

    Note that this only processes payment, you will have to setup distribution yourself, through your own server (be it HTTP, FTP, etc..) and you will have to write the network code necessary for the transfer.

    Pretty dangerous. Apple has been known to reject apps that are too close in functionality to their own, because they feel they can confuse the customer. I believe this is covered in section 8.3 of the App Store Review Guidelines.

    I'm pretty sure such functionality is not possible with the public APIs. Third-party apps are sandboxed and, to put it simply, you'll be hard-pressed to move files out of that sandbox and into iTunes. You may have some options for a desktop app or web-app that runs on the desktop (a la Amazon Downloader) but that's probably not what you're looking for.

    To me, seems a somewhat strange question, based on the experience you say you have. What ideas have you already come up with? Why won't they work? Etc.
