I am looking to develop a mobile application that allows users to sell and purchase a digital asset using a micropayment credit system. We also may require using internal functionality of the mobile device such as photo library. After reading it looks like we have to create a native application for iOS because of the functionality requirements.
The questiona are:
1. Likely your app will be rejected:
11.1 Apps that unlock or enable additional features or functionality
- Purchasing and currencies
with mechanisms other than the App
Store, except as approved in section
11.13, will be rejected
11.2 Apps utilizing a system other than the In App Purchase API (IAP) to
purchase content, functionality, or
services in an app will be rejected
11.3 Apps using IAP to purchase physical goods or goods and services
used outside of the application will
2. It may make sense:
The market is big but the heat is in the App Store.
For example just make the users send the photos from an email.
Or make an app to just upload and view pictures in your market. Rights then could be bought there.
