Hi experts! I am building an iPhone app that pulls db data from my server using an API I also created. I understand this is not allowed by apple? If this is the case, how do application like Foursquare or others pull data into the app?

Thanks!

Thank you very much. That article talks about using SQLLite. However I can not use it because the DB is huge, so I am building an API so that the app requests only the info it needs. I need to know if I can do this, or if my app will be rejected by apple?

Thanks!

It's true apple didn't allow use or API's other than their own. However this has been lifted now just last week, and it's now possible to use private API's in apps. Of course your app needs to meet Apple other guide lines to get approved.

Here's an link to the guidelines:
