Phil Schiller has taken the time to smooth the ruffled feathers of some rejected App Store developers recently (not Google’s that’s a different story). Is it just me, or does Apple appear to be protecting an eBook reader/dictionary application of its own? One that might look good on a tablet as well as an iPhone? One that would download books from the iTunes Store instead of Amazon?
Schiller also denied a rumor that Apple is rejecting every ebook reader submitted to the App Store. Frank went on to describe Schiller’s e-mail as polite and courteous, and said he was grateful that the Apple executive took the time to contact him.
Last week, Schiller made an unprecedented move in responding to Jon Gruber of Daring Fireball about the handling of an iPhone dictionary application’s approval.
