Yes, I understand for all developpers who want to distribute inside the AppStore.
It is not my case... I said that few weeks ago. I create tools for me, and I want create tools on iPad witch is, I think, a fabulous thing... I understand also that RunRev don't invest only for people like me, we are not numerous enough...
This is my problem... or not...
Bon souvenir de Paris
