Apple iPhone app SDK rules broken by Google

Seems Google has been naughty because when creating their Google Mobile app for the Apple iPhone they have now admitted they broke Apple’s iPhone software developer kit official rules, but also deny a more serious charge.

Google has confirmed they used undocumented APIs to use the Apple iPhone’s proximity sensor to prompt a verbal search, but iPhone developers are only supposed to use APIs published in the SDK.

A more serious charge of it was linking to private or dynamic frameworks in the Google Mobile app has been denied by Google, as that accusation is considered to be a huge no-no within the mobile phone development community.

It is possible that Google could be force by Apple to rewrite the code for Google Mobile app if Apple decides to enforce the terms of the SDK
