OK, So here's an update of my first experiences of submitting an app to the Apple App Store. 

After a week of being in the status "Waiting Review", it then went to "In Review" for approximately 7 hours before being Rejected. 

The reason being: "2.13: Apps that are primarily marketing materials or advertisements will be rejected". OK, so I know there isn't a huge amount of functionality but the app does act as a valuable tool for all of the students attending the school to provide them with up to date information regarding the training schedule and news about the school. 

It does make me wonder whether part of the issue is down to the fact the app was free. I can understand why Apple would be keen to keep the App Store clutter free, and perhaps they don't want to pick up the bill for hosting lots of app's which wont be making them all money. However it does cause issues for businesses looking to provide some added value to their customers who are getting app's rejected for these reasons. 

So back to the drawing board for this app. Hopefully I will be able to find a way to make the app more appealing to Apple.
