ha download it with a visa or mastercard that has no money, (and on prepay) then when apple goes to charge it, it will not be able to take the funds lol.

Wonder if anyone would buy it, also I wonder if apple will pull it off

I wonder if the chick from naked news has brought one?




When you live your life on Twitter and Facebook, and are only friends with like minded people on Twitter and Facebook, you are not living in the real world. You are living in a narcissistic echo chamber.

The application was removed but here are the reviews.

This actually shows something about how closed the whole iPhone environment is. There are lots of cases of developers complaining about their applications being in the approval waiting list, while this stupidity is allowed to go live in the store.

And it has now become apparent that Apple have the Abililty to remotely disable apps too

I guess the question is what else did people sign on for when they downloaded things from the App store??

I pondered why Apple let this bad-gem sneak in (given they have a thorough process that took ages for other useful apps to appear) at first place. Totally unimpressed !
