Steve Jobs has his say approving streaming video app

A persuasive e-mail from an iPhone developer to Steve Jobs helped Pointy Heads Software get its Knocking Live Video—the first official iPhone app capable of streaming live video over 3G and WiFi connections—approved for sale in the App Store. The app relies on a private API—well-known among iPhone developers—to enable its video streaming feature, so its approval is a good sign for other companies developing video-based apps. It's also a good sign that Apple is taking developer complaints with the App Store approval process seriously.
