Yes, why is Löve not on the Apple Store? Can this happen?

It is on Google Play...

It's either free or not much to get it onto google play.
To get it onto the Mac store is $100 USD a year, and can be painful with updates.
Learning to Löve.

Yeah I wouldn't want to pay that money either. But maybe there's somebody here in the forum who already has a dev account anyways and could do Love a favor and upload it to the store using his or her account?

I have a developer account. If the app complies with Apple's policy, I would happily upload LÖVE on the App Store.

After reading a little bit of Apple's App Store submission review guidelines I am very disillusioned .

https://developer.apple.com/app-store/review/

After reading that I can't help but think: Could Apple be any more condescending/anal/authoritative/paranoid/fascist about their store?

I see no hope but maybe it is possible to submit Löve and get a "nice" reviewer that might accept it anyways and allow it in the App Store. The reviewers are human after all and might see the awesomeness of Löve.

Yeah well you see this is how they keep garbage out of their marketplace, which many would appreciate, seeing what kind of cesspits free and open admission produces. Apple is also very concerned with malware and spyware, and you know people are going great lengths to put spy bugs in Apple hardware and software and Apple goes great lengths to stop it.
