[ In InfoWorld's Test Center, Peter Wayner discusses PhoneGap and other iPhone development tools and details his rejection at the hands of the iPhone App Store. ]
The vagaries and caprices of the iPhone App Store approval process are not addressed in this book that I can see. For that you might want to read about Peter Wayner's hair-raising "iPhone App Store roulette: A tale of rejection." Wayner's rejection experience came about because he was using PhoneGap, "a thin wrapper around the UIWebView object." Whether QuickConnect, which uses delegates to UIApplication, UIWebView, and UIAccelerometer, will lead to the same issues at the App Store remains an open question.
If an iPhone developer with experience submitting QuickConnect applications to the App Store would e-mail me or leave a comment here, I'd be grateful.

Apple's random rules for iPhone app approval are a recipe for trivial apps and alienated developers
