Apple on Thursday published a set of rules about the types of content that aren't allowed in the iOS App Store, answering questions that have been bugging software developers and customers for years while introducing some new ambiguities.

Still, it's an important step. By publishing the guidelines, Apple mobile customers will be able to know what they can and can’t get on an iOS device versus, say, an Android phone.

However, some developers think parts of the guidelines could be more clear.
