I'm pretty sure that there's nothing against GPL on Cydia either, and you havn't got to worry about Apple's review period either, you cn push updates whenever you want.
What about putting enigma on cydia? I don't think there are any problems with 
the GPL on cydia.

Hey Alex, thanks for taking the time to write a great response to some

know what you think.
I know this is a (very) old thread, but it may be worth resurrecting; it
seems that it is impossible to put a GPLv2 application into the Apple
App Store after all. Not because of the reasons I brought up in the
thread earlier, but due to the Terms of Service for Apple's App Store.
(In other words, you aren't breaking the GPL or Apple's agreements by
putting a GPLv2 app in the App Store, as has been discussed already; but
Apple is if they actually distribute the app to people.) The FSF have an
analysis at
gpl-enforcement>, with further links and information. (The issue is that when
selling/providing apps to people via the App Store, Apple puts restrictions on 
ways in which you can use the app, which contradicts the last sentence of 
6 of the GPLv2.)

Therefore, Enigma on the iPhone probably wouldn't be possible after all,
at least not via Apple's App Store.
