I'm potentially a new iPad developer (been developing Windows apps for about 25 years) and have a question on getting an app approved.
If the app (it will be a business productivity app) will be communicating with a server app (probably a Web Service) running on a Windows Server and running Microsoft SQL, IIS, etc., is it likely that the app will be rejected by Apple?
I need the app to be able to upload and download data from my web and db servers. I've been reading up on iPad development and I'm very interested but before I take the plunge (need to purchase a Macbook and an iPad) I wanted to make sure that in the end I wouldn't encounter resistance when getting the app approved.
I know nothing is certain but I was mainly curious about Apple's policy toward device communication with non Apple servers and software. The intended iPad app will also be designed to run totally stand-alone without access to external servers, but I also need it to communicate with my current web application.
Any thoughts on this subject are greatly appreciated!
