WTF Apple...reject the smallest bugs but let a HUGE one go through?

    So some apps have been rejected because of UI designs and stupid bugs that would never be found but last night they put my app on the store that crashes for every single person. Did they even test it?! I woke up this morning to a flurry of emails saying the app crashes now every time it's opened but Apple allowed this on the store? :eek: I'm guessing because I built it with 3.0 SDK(for 2.1) that somehow it's crashing on older phones but works on mine since it has 3.0. Very upsetting and annoying.

    You're building for 3.0. They test on 3.0 now. It worked fine for them. But everyone else in the world still has 2.2.1.

    You are probably using some new API in 3.0.

    edit: You should use the 2.2.1 SDK to submit apps.

    I'm actually building for 2.1, nothing new is in the app since it hasn't been touched since November besides small bugs that are basic objective-c. Maybe I will try with 2.2.1 and see but you would think they would test on all devices.

    You would think. But they're certainly not perfect. And even though Apple asks for 3.0-compatibility, they still suggest rebuilding and submitting using Xcode 3.1.2, which is part of the iPhone SDK 2.2.1.
