I’ve been fortunate to have every one of my app submissions pass through the first time, except for one, one of the Grand Tour-3D (Solar System simulator)  updates.

The concern was with a statement about the “cost” of my app in the description as it might cause confusion in
foreign markets. The rules are simply to never mention price in the copy, let the Appstore figure out the price for the various countries. Makes sense of course. Except for the line that did state a “price:”

This little gem had been there for the previous submissions with nary a mention:

• Costs about $149,999,995.01 less then the Voyager probes.

Yup, we wouldn’t want any one in Poland think that I meant Zlotys, it
might confuse the little darlin’s if they wanted to purchase a Voyager
interplanetary probe of their own.

Sigh. I lost several days with that, considering that the app was bounced and had to go to the back of the line for a fix that took about 10 seconds and did nothing with the code.

I had a chance to speak with the Appstore director about perhaps letting rejected apps jump to the front of the line if the changes took less then a day to implement.
