The $1000 iPhone application - first victim?

, posted: 8-Aug-2008 09:35

So, apparently someone actually bought the $1000 iPhone application (which does absolutely nothing!) I first wrote about yesterday. I was wondering is someone would buy it. Looks like someone did and is now trying to get his money back, since it was all just an accident, supposedly.

Good luck with that. Just get in the habit of not buying software in the first place, stick with free and open systems and you won't have that problem.

Someone has made an exact copy of the App via Cydia and jailbroken phones - for free. All the same features are there (read - None).
