New Apple rules may let BASIC back into C64 app
Loading Ready Run
Manomio’s C64 emulator for iPhone was originally rejected by Apple for including interpreted code within the app. The built-in BASIC emulator, like Flash and Silverlight, was denied for featuring ‘executable code’.
The BASIC interpreter was then removed on Apple’s request so the app could make its way to the App Store.
But following Apple’s new rule reversal last week, which now considers interpreted code kosher, BASIC will be chucked back in the app and resubmitted in version 2 of the download.
“We're cautiously optimistic after very positive correspondence with Apple”, the developer wrote on Twitter.
Alongside the BASIC emulator, the new version will feature a handful of bug fixes, an upgrade to OpenFeint 2.6.1 and full iOS 4.1 support.
