> 2. If an App Store doesn't allow Tor Browser, then people need an app that will download Tor Browser
> 3. Perhaps the App Store will allow an app that can download Tor Browser over the Tor network (this could be as simple as tor, torify, and wget executables, and a GUI frontend)

Well, your reasoning makes sense. I guess we'll have to figure out if we
can put something like that in an app store (and in an official
account). I'll have it in mind as an option, thanks.
