Steve Jobs Gives a Seattle iPad Developer a Call
Seattle developer Ram Arumugam received a call from Apple CEO Steve Jobs, after he had sent an e-mail stating his dismay on the company’s rejection of his iPad application.
According to Arumugam, he sent an e-mail to Steve Jobs in the end of October to show his frustration, as the company had rejected his app. He said he never expected that Apple CEO would call him himself.
According to Apple, the iPad app was rejected due to the non-public code, also known as a private application programming interface (API) that was included in the app. Apple does not currently allow API in approved apps.
Arumugam reasoned out that API was included in his app to fix iPad problem with the on-screen keyboard that wouldn’t disappear on the screen even after the user is done with typing.
Steve Jobs and Ram Arumugam had talked and the non-public code in the app had been removed.
Apple accepted the app and it has become the No. 1 selling paid app in the iPad store’s finance category.
