[fpc-pascal] has anyone successfully written an app for iOS using Free Pascal and got it approved by Apple Appstore?

Frankly, I don't like Apple. They have become arrogant and stubborn like 
Microsoft and old Sony and (the old IBM).
Remember Sony used to have this special type of SD card (Called Memory 
stick ) which are so different from other SD, MMC and they forced you to 
buy them (at much higher priced than SD,MMC) if you buy their 
electronics equipment (which only supports MemorySticks). They wanted to 
use their market power to force you to buy inferior stuff from them at 
premium price. It is exactly what Apple is doing now with its special 
lightning wire, iTunes (no SD allowed), awkward Objective C, X-Code, No 
flash etc.  I sincerely hope they will suffer what Sony had with this 
same strategy.

In HK where I live, Iphone market share is disappearing rapidly. It's 
considered as old/boring by many and new smartphone users tend to choose 
Android (mostly Samsung, some Sony) instead of iphone as their first
