    Just curious if Apple will reject apps that use their gestures? i.e. two finger rotate, zooming in/out, three finger swipes, etc.

    Just be sure not to violate any of Apple's trademarks and copyright as you do so.
    [app]CraigsHarvest[/app] was once rejected because our help screen showed an image of the icon for the Settings app. The App Review Team complained that we weren't allowed to use that. I guess we have permission to use things like standard buttons (info, compose, action, etc.) but we don't have permission to use icons to reference other built-in apps.

    So is implementing the same finger gestures designed by Apple considered a violation then?

    Does Apple actually own copyrights/trademarks to their gesture scheme? i.e. the exact finger motions.
