Uh. What?

Yeah I disagree completely. Apple encourages innovation. There are loads of apps in the app store doing very interesting things with iOS that Apple likely did not expect. So then what happens? They get featured.

OP sounds upset because he was rejected from the App Store. Tough shit. It happens. Apple can do that, like it or not. Android comes with its own set of problems. Enjoy java.

Realistically, that's not how the featuring system works. Sure, if your app is truly amazing and is taking off Apple might feature it. There are only so many apps that Apple can feature, or even notice. And then there are all the established companies who constantly get featured in the cycle because they are great revenue drivers. And it's the same on Android -- the folks running the app stores have a goal with what they do and they do things to make both new and established developers happy.
