App Store 审核指南中英文对照版

修订于:2015.10.19

虽然我一直说App Store Review Guidelines是iOS开发者必看的《葵花宝典》,但其实这些年来我也都没对着英文原版认真读一遍……事实上,你想对着中文版认真读一遍也是件不太容易的事情,因为现在网上能找到的各种自行翻译的中文版不是过期太久,就是颇多瑕疵。

这次重写《运营基础课》,总算是静下心来把 App Store Review Guidelines 的英文原版完整过了一遍,顺便整理了一个中英文对照版本。这个版本之后将会持续保持更新,尽量与官方的文本保持实时一致。

由于本人学疏才浅(不是自谦),加上iOS 开发的很多领域也未曾涉及,因此可以想象这个版本中也会存在不少谬误。还请各位如若发现,不吝赐教,共同维护一个更新及时释义准确的版本。

App Store Review Guidelines 审核指南

Introduction

介绍

We’re

pleased that you want to invest your talents and time to develop

applications for iOS. It has been a rewarding experience - both

professionally and financially - for hundreds of thousands of developers

and we want to help you join this successful group. We have published

our App Store Review Guidelines in the hope that they will help you

steer clear of issues as you develop your App and speed you through the

approval process when you submit it.

感谢你贡献才华与时间来开发iOS应用。从职业与回报两方面来看,这对成千上万的开发人员来说都是一项值得投身的事业,我们也希望能帮助你加入这个成功的群体。我们希望这份《App

Store 审核指南》能帮你避开开发过程中可能遇到的某些问题,并在你提交应用时帮你加快审核流程。

We view Apps

different than books or songs, which we do not curate. If you want to

criticize a religion, write a book. If you want to describe sex, write a

book or a song, or create a medical App. It can get complicated, but we

have decided to not allow certain kinds of content in the App Store. It

may help to keep some of our broader themes in mind:

我们将应用(Apps)视为与书籍或歌曲不同的产品(我们并不收录它们)。如果你意欲批评宗教,那就去写本书。如果你想要描述性爱,那就写本书或写首歌,或者可以创建一个医疗类应用。这么做可能会显得有些复杂,但我们已经决定不允许某些内容出现在应用商店(App

Store)。这个决定能帮助我们秉持一些更为深远的愿景:

We have lots of kids downloading lots of Apps. Parental controls work great to protect kids, but you have to do your part too. So know that we’re keeping an eye out for the kids.

有很多儿童用户从 App Store 下载应用。虽然家长监护功能可以很好地保护他们,但是你也需要做应该做的那一部分。你要知道我们时刻在留心孩子们。

We have over a million Apps in the App Store. If your App doesn’t do something useful, unique or provide some form of lasting entertainment, or if your app is plain creepy, it may not be accepted.

App Store 中有超过一百万的应用。如果你的应用没有什么有益的用途,不够独特或者不能提供持续性的娱乐功能,又或者只是一味的恐怖吓人,那它可能不会被接受。

If your App looks like it was cobbled together in a few days, or you’re trying to get your first practice App into the store to impress your friends, please brace yourself for rejection. We have lots of serious developers who don’t want their quality Apps to be surrounded by amateur hour.

如果你的应用看上去像是那种只花了几天功夫简单拼凑出来的东西,或者只是出于证明给朋友们看看的目的上传了练手的应用,请提前做好被拒的准备。我们用有很多态度严谨的开发者,不希望他们的高品质应用周围充斥着玩票性质的作品。

We will reject Apps for any content or behavior that we believe is over the line. What line, you ask? Well, as a Supreme Court Justice once said, “I’ll know it when I see it”. And we think that you will also know it when you cross it.

我们将拒绝任何包含越界内容或行为的应用。你可能会问,具体的界限是什么?这么说吧,最高法院的法官曾有言:“当它出现时,我自然心中有数。”当你越过这一界限时,我们认为你也会有自知之明。

If your App is rejected, we have a Review Board that you can appeal to. If you run to the press and trash us, it never helps.

如果你的应用被拒,你可以向审查委员会申诉。如果你去媒体抨击我们,肯定对你于事无补。

If you attempt to cheat the system (for example, by trying to trick the review process, steal data from users, copy another developer’s work, or manipulate the ratings) your Apps will be removed from the store and you will be expelled from the developer program.

如果你试图欺骗(比如在审核流程中作假,窃取用户数据,抄袭其他开发者作品,或者操纵应用评分),我们将会移除你的应用,并将你从开发者计划中除名。

This is a living document, and new Apps presenting new questions may result in new rules at any time. Perhaps your App will trigger this.

这是一个动态文档,新提交的应用会导致新的问题产生,并可能随时产生新的规则。或许你的应用就会触发这个机制。

Lastly, we love this stuff too, and honor what you do. We’re really trying our best to create the best platform in the world for you to express your talents and make a living too. If it sounds like we’re control freaks, well, maybe it’s because we’re so committed to our users and making sure they have a quality experience with our products. Just like almost all of you are, too.

总而言之,我们非常珍爱这个平台,同时也尊重你的付出。我们一直在尽力创建全球最佳平台,以便让你展示才华,并获得相应的回报。如果这看上去让你感觉我们的控制欲过强,那是因为我们曾向用户承诺保证,我们的产品将让他们获得高品质的体验,就像你能体验的一样。

Living document 动态文档

This document represents our best efforts to share how we review Apps submitted to the App Store, and we hope it is a helpful guide as you develop and submit your Apps. It is a living document that will evolve as we are presented with new Apps and situations, and we’ll update it periodically to reflect these changes.

这份文档展现了我们在竭尽所能向你分享我们对提交到App Store的应用的审查方式,我们希望你在开发和提交应用时,这份指南能对你有所帮助。这是一份动态文档,随着新应用和新情况的发生会有所变化。我们会定期更新,以反映这些变化。

Thank

you for developing for iOS. Even though this document is a formidable

list of what not to do, please also keep in mind the much shorter list

of what you must do. Above all else, join us in trying to surprise and

delight users. Show them their world in innovative ways, and let them

interact with it like never before. In our experience, users really

respond to polish, both in functionality and user interface. Go the

extra mile. Give them more than they expect. And take them places where

they have never been before. We are ready to help.

感谢你参与到iOS的开发。虽然此文档是一份“禁止事宜”的列表,但也请将那份短得多的“必做事宜”列表牢记于心。最重要的是,用我们共同的努力让用户感到惊奇和欣喜,用创新方式向他们展示世界,让他们用前所未有的方式与之互动。根据我们的经验,无论是应用功能还是用户界面,用户确实会对精良的应用有所回应。让我们更进一步,给他们超越预期的东西,带他们去从未去过的地方。我们时刻准备着提供帮助。
