Local Search API on Iphone

Hi,
I am developing an iphone application that will utilize Yahoo Local Search API.
I have several questions for my application.

According to http://developer.yahoo.com/search/local/V3/localSearch.html, The Local Search service is limited to 5,000 queries per IP address per day and to noncommercial use."
Does it apply the same way for iphone application?

As for the attribution issue, according to http://developer.yahoo.com/attribution/#attribBadge,
I have to embed an html code in my application.
I am confused on how to put the Yahoo web service lbadge since my iPhone application is not html-based.
I know I can use a webview to do it. However, when users click it, it is going to be really messy.
Is there any better way to put the attribution?

Also, for getting the app id, i need to type in the application url. If the application does not have an url since it is an iphone aplication, what should I type in?

Finally, is there is any different terms of use for iphone application from the normal terms of use (http://info.yahoo.com/legal/us/yahoo/api/api-2140.html)?

Thanks in advance,
Fransiskus Xaverius

  • May I add an extra question to this:

    Can I charge for my iphone app that uses this web service? How about making it free and putting ads on it?
