Details of the application submission process for Apple’s upcoming iPhone and iPod touch App Store have been published online. AppleInsider reports that applications have been restricted to a file size limit of 2GB, and apps that are not distributed for free will be priced using a tiered system which scales from $0.99 to $999.99. Screenshots from a web-based application submission portal show a screen to help developers rate their games, and a screen that allows selection of which countries the application will be sold in, and the appropriate pricing in each region based on that application’s pricing tier. Apple is expected to launch the App Store in early July, possibly on the 11th, coinciding with the launch of the iPhone 3G.

So what, developers can’t even decide to offer their wares for free? That’s disappointing.

iLounge is obviously wrong about excluding the free tier.  More than half of the WWDC demos were being made available on the AppStore for free.

“and apps that are not distributed for free will be priced using a tiered system which scales from $0.99 to $999.99.”

Read it again.

Adam & Mark,

Actually, the bit about free apps was originally omitted - I updated the story following Mark’s comment.
