    Cool in some ways, sucky in others...

    To balance out the flood of crap that will come in they have posted their review guidelines. Which are private but I am sure they will leak. I hope you guys get to read them, they are humorous and ass kickingly honest at the same time.

     

    And there is now an appeal process if you believe you have been squashed in error.

     

    Hopefully this brings awesome developers like @rentzch back into the fold. And that should reignite things like the C4 conference.

    Google gives a thumbs up on the ads front:

    Surprisingly they haven't mentioned the slow roll on Google Voice. Imagine if that gets approved this week too!
