Apple Yanks Another iPhone Application


Five days have passed since Apple inexplicably removed the applications NetShare and BoxOffice from the iPhone App Store. And now, the $1,000 I Am Rich app has disappeared as well.

Just what is going on at Apple? You would think the company would be more discriminatory with the applications it approves before they show up in the App Store, but these three incidents say otherwise.

Nullriver's NetShare, an application that turns your iPhone into a wireless modem, violates AT&T's Terms of Service agreement. BoxOffice is, well, just an application that displays movie listings. And I Am Rich was clearly a joke application that did nothing for the low price of $1,000 — how did that even make it?

Maksim Rogov, president of Nullriver, said he didn't even expect Apple to approve his company's application.

"When it was approved our reaction was great — it was amazing," Rogov said. "But and then [when it was removed] that was category of alphabetic character quetch down. We were alphabetic character small indefinite amount upset."

Apple has since contacted Nullriver language that NetShare's sack was alphabetic character foul misstatement and that the travail gift cost in reply inward the store. only how come would it come down squad writer of foul troubleshooting to organize thing in reply upward once it was hole in the ground scarce finely before? I'm not purchase it.

There's thing suspicious achievement along hither — and the sack of alphabetic character modulation plentiful only when makes Apple's infidelity still to a greater extent suspicious.
