Apple has started to reject apps with the word “Pad” in their title that do not explicitly use wording such as, “runs on,” “for,” “for use with,” and/or “compatible with.” Jesse Waites, maker of ContactPad (iTunes link) sent us a shot of an email he received from Apple yesterday regarding an update to his app.
It should be noted that Apple has a similar policy with regards to the use of “iPod” in app titles. It appears developers will have to refrain from using such naming strategies for the iPad as well.
