Bootlegger (1.3) and CandyWars (3.1) updates have been submitted to Apple that fix the issue with the keyboard overlapping the buttons on the high score alert where you enter your name.

After sitting in the “in review” process for a few months. I got a call from Apple letting me know what the hold up was…in the about box I said “This app was initially rejected by Apple…”. I’ve removed this historical fact from the about box and have resubmitted.
All in all, it was a very good phone conversation. I was extremely calm through the whole call (which is very hard to do when dealing with the AppStore review process). Last week I had Bootlegger Lite rejected because Apple claimed I was up selling within the application, but I’m doing the exact same thing I am doing in CandyWars Lite which was approved. I do a similar up sell in CheckPlease Lite where there is a giant banner at the top of the app saying upgrade to CheckPlease if you don’t want ads, and CheckPlease Lite has been available for months also. I have no idea how the App Review Team is going to deal with all of the In App Purchase Up Sells…since most apps will be up selling new levels or gear within games. Obviously, either App Review Team needs to get some documentation out there about this, or they will have modify their internal process for rejecting apps based on up selling.

CandyWars and Bootlegger both crash if a player gets a high score and don’t have an active internet connection. Version 2.0.1 of CandyWars and version 1.1.1 of Bootlegger will fix this crash.
I submitted the updates today so give it 5 days for Apple’s review process.
