    I've heard that Apple sometimes allows undocumented UIKit stuff to pass; would UICoverFlowLayer be passable? I saw Erica's code, and I think it's pretty sweet, but I don't want to work on something with cover flow, only to be rejected.

    Undocumented API is fine. You can not use private API.

    I believe CoverFlow is a private API though. Some developer made his own CoverFlow implementation in order to get around it, Apple thought he was using their private API and didn't allow the application in. However, once he explained what he did to a certain extent, they let him go through. True story.

    Coverflow is not private API. According the the rules, we can use undocumented API, but it is not recommended, as Apple can change it with a firmware update, breaking your application.
