    Just a question, can you distrubute apps onto the App Store with the free version, or do you have to pay for the $99 one?

    Ask Apple directly, because I don't think anyone here would know unless they've been in the exact situation.
    I don't know why they wouldn't, but better safe then sorry.

    The $99 is to distribute apps into the App Store, meaning you most likely have to pay the fee even if it's just a free app.

    THIS IS THE ANSWER

    To DISTRIBUTE apps in the AppStore you must pay $99 no matter if it is a free app or paid you MUST pay it!

    If you wanna make apps for use on jailbroken apps, you don't need to pay.

    I hate this. I always thought that Apple said that you don't need to pay to distribute a free application. When i learned that you had to pay, though, I'm not really surprised, they need to pay for their servers.
