Sensational Apple Headlines

AHHHHHH!Mobile Orchard: “Apple prevents developers from changing iOS App Screenshots in App Store”

That’s the headline for what I see as a good change to an Apple App Store policy, but Mobile Orchard makes it sound horrible.

A small number of slimy app developers would submit their apps with the correct screenshots only to replace them with a set that had nothing to do with the app. This would result in increased sales and unhappy, duped, customers.

Panic has a great weblog post outing one such slime bag developer.

Some developers have complained about the change, but I don’t understand why? This change will help protect the integrity of the App Store and help weed out crappy scam apps.
