This goes to show you that open letters to important people do work. Just yesterday we reported that Jonathan Zdziarski's AMBER Alert application had been stuck in the App Store's review process for nearly an entire month. Zdziarski decided to write an open letter to Steve Jobs pleading to get the application through the system as quickly as possible. Turns out, someone was listening.
AMBER Alert is now available at the App Store for free, and gives users real-time information regarding missing children. Zdziarkski worked closely with the National Center of Missing and Exploited Children to make this the official AMBER Alert tool for the iPhone
This is definitely a win for Jonathan Zdziarski and the AMBER Alert program, but it doesn't help the fact that Apple still has a broken review process. Are we to assume the only way for developers to quickly get their applications through the review process is to write an open letter to Steve Jobs? Maybe we will have to resort to that method to get BargainBin approved as well.
