That's not exactly true: we did not even try to submit the iPad version to Apple. One reason is indeed that Apple might object to the built-in project sharing, but the more severe reason is that the current Etoys UI does not work well on a touch-only device. Nobody has seriously tried to do anything about that, yet.

(It is true that Apple rejected the "Scratch Viewer", see http://mobilewikiserver.com/Scratch.html )
