    Hmmm interesting caveat, what about companies such as Storm8 which add extra challenges and bonuses within their games if you install another of the developments? Racing Live and Vampires Live are games I play and constantly get asked to install another from the range for some in-game credits?

    So Passbook will get killed?

    I kid… kinda. Still don’t understand the purpose of the app. Why in the heck doesn’t it allow you to create your own Passbook cards? You know, scan your *insert store* bonus card and it will generate the card for you. Is tracking all out info that damn important that this simple functionality has to be crippled. And don’t give me this “Oh, you can go to this website and create one and send to Passbook.” That’s just lame and who the hell knows who those states are owned by and what they’ll do with your data.

    Been a while since we’ve over-analyzed the developer guidelines.

    I hope that doesn’t mean that TouchArcade will be gone now. ?

    This sounds great, however some free apps support themselves this way. Also some apps, such as Magic Piano, allow you to purchase currency by downloading and launching apps (which you then delete after collecting of course), would it affect this?

    Many stores stopped allowing for App stored card scans. 2 years ago ShopRite stopped accepting my scanned bonus card (manager said anyone could create a card UPC and use it to steal other member’s free holiday turkey/ham, or their Baby Bucks-$10 off when $100 spent on baby products). Of course that gave me many ideas…
