[AI] iPhone Apps Store Caps Price, Size

People familiar with the matter say that apps uploaded to the Apple-run service via iTunes Connect have been given an absolute file size limit of 2GB that may prevent some developers from producing software with very large, integrated data sets. Apple doesn't say whether the limit is technical or for other reasons.

For most other functions, however, the iPhone maker is said by those aware of the submission interface to be offering a significant amount of control over how and where apps are delivered.

A web-based portal lets developers manage a large number of business and store presentation elements. It also lets these creators set the compatibility of the app with the iPod touch, the global regions where program should be distributed, and even game content ratings that roughly match American and European standards, warning parents of particularly sexual or violent content during play.

Apple will refuse to sell games which would merit an "adult" rating, those knowledgeable of the company's policies say.

Importantly, pricing is described as a tiered system rather than an arbitrary price point chosen by the producer. Those who want to charge for apps can ask users to pay as little as 99 cents at the US store up to a maximum of $999.99; each tier moves the price up by increments from between $1 to $100 depending on the relative price difference.

Apple has often promoted free or low-cost apps, and during its Worldwide Developer Conference showcased a number of apps which will be priced at $10 or less; the tiers now suggest that professional-level apps will also be a possibility.

This is pretty cool...

Anyone know how the new 2.x firmware will react to a iphone with the older 1.1.4 and been jailbroken??

kinda curious to know if the new firmware that supports the app download thing from apple, will not go through because of it being jailbroken...

Also, i have noticed that i can revert my phone back to default. Thus relocking the file system. If i were to upgrade my iphone's firmware to the new one, from factory settings, would i be able to jailbreak it again??
good enough

Updating jailbroken phones in the past sometimes led to "bricked" phone, rendering it useless on AT&T's network. You should always relock your phone before an update in order to prevent this risk. I'm sure someone will find away to jailbreak the 2.0 firmware eventually
