Gaming Apps Need China Media Regulator's Approval Before Listing in Apple's App Store

(Yicai Global) July 4 -- As of July 1, mobile gaming apps in China need to obtain the approval of the State Administration of Press, Publication, Radio, Film and Television before they can list on Apple Inc.'s App Store.

Apple yesterday notified all Chinese developers and vendors of mobile gaming apps that if they fail to secure approval from the media regulator for products already listed in the store by Oct. 1, the games will be removed. It takes about one month for SARFT to approve a mobile game for listing.
