Jobs Takes Issue with App Store Approval Characterizations

Standing on the stage in front of thousands of developers at the 2010 Worldwide Developers Conference, Apple CEO Steve Jobs seem to take issue with the medias often negative characterization of the App Store process. Apple has repeatedly been criticized for using what seems to be an uneven standard when selecting which apps make it through to the store.

Jobs was having none of that. He claims that Apple approves 95% of the apps it receives for inclusion, most in less than a week. Some 15,000 apps are sent per day, he added. So what happens to the other five percent that don’t make it? Jobs says these are either buggy and do not do what they say they do.

Doesn’t seem to address the actual problem in my opinion, but I guess you can give Steve Jobs credit for attempting to get out in front of the issue?
