I am almost finished with my Universal iApp. It downloads a bunch of .mp3 and .mp4 files for playing and these files are stored on my remote Server. Will this be allowed with the new Sandbox rules effective this March?

There is a development forum for this, and this has nothing to do with iOS.

That said, the answer is yes, it will work. The sandbox rules are this:

- You must use a sandbox on your Mac app.
- You must store anything your app needs in the sandbox, or use the given Open/Save APIs to let the user open/save files outside of your sandbox.

This will do nothing to prevent you from downloading files from your Mac app to play, and saving them inside your sandbox for caching/etc.
