in app dlc?

Are there any regulations and guidelines for in app dlc? Most are seemingly tied to your account so you can repurchase again on another device with same apple ID. But how about those premium in game items (stat resets, special weapons, etc)?

The reason I'm mentioning this is because many people seems to be pretty angry with Com2us these days after they picked up their new iphones/ ipod touches and realize there is no way to get old data back because Com2us uses some weird save system that's tied to UDID.

In-app purchases, whether they need DLC or not, are tied to your account, so you can redownload them from your other devices. This is all controlled by Apple.

A data save system is totally dependent on the developer to create. Apple is not involved.

Based on your comments, it sounds like Com2Us did a poor job of it.
