    Some seem to miss the true point here. When an app is submitted to Apple the Developer (Not Apple) Declares that They (The Developer) Hold ALL copyrights to All materials for their App.

    This Joker clearly did not hold copyrights to the material he was re-branding as his. The real owners complained, and the apps removed.

    Apple can not possibly track down every copyright holder and confirm that the content in every app is registered/licensed by the app developer, that's the Developers' job.

    Now this seems to make sense......

    Oh really guys? If you had half the chance, you'd do the same. Apart from the copyright stuff, why should his apps have been pulled? If they abide by the rules, I don't see the problem. So what if they're a piece of crap, people CHOOSE to buy them, if they get a low rating, you don't buy it. Oh and to those who say people should get warning for low rated apps etc. That's very unfair, people who make GOOD apps which lack a feature etc, people rate down. Especially free ones. Is that really fair? I'll admit, I do find it difficult to browse sometimes, but perhaps Apple could add a rating filter? There solved.

    Wonderful news. Well done Apple. Although it should'nt have approved them in the first place. It is suckers like us who have been the victim. If only they let us free trials all the software first, thieves like this might not have the chance to rip us off, at least not in the scale at present.

    Too much gargage that should be cleaned up in the Applestore, making browsing and buying stuff so difficult these days.

    Time of iFart should be over. Time for quality software now.

    I'll bet owners of these 943 $4.99/ea junk-ware apps have a fair chance of winning a class-action lawsuit against Apple. Sure, the primary defendant is the developer, but there is no doubt Apple has responsibilities --- regardless of what their Terms and Conditions says. I'll take a lot of time and money, for sure. Something large corporations are betting we don't have

    Macrumors posted a story about how the developer was/is trying to sell the company.

    Previous auction listings show an interesting trail of information for the business, with the first auction in January indicating that the business had 5 employees and earned $1800 per month in revenue, all the way to the current listing that states the business has 60 employees located in Pakistan with revenue between $10,000 and $50,000 per month. Shaikh also reveals in this listing that headcount is expected to increase to "120 to 240" by the end of this year and that they plan to have over 10,000 apps within this same time frame.
    Glad they stopped him before he hit the 10k apps mark this year that he was saying.

    i guess apple just liked to get the numbers of apps created as high as possible.
    we all know how they like to show numbers on those keynodes.

    but crap or not i think its wrong to first aprove all those apps and pull the plug at the end just like that.
    that will scare some new upcomming developers in maybe not wanting to waste their time into something that can be taken away like that.

    Thats always the thing that bugged me with virtual software. No way you can test drive it unless there was a demo option, no preview. Only way you could is if someone already did and put a video. I was not even worried about GV at first cause I figured i'd never use it. On paper sounded odd. I saw videos of it and now I'm in line to try it. There is no return policy when you buy a crappy app from the app store so I guess its a big reason why I dont get many paid apps until i get to see it in action. I also agree that while this is an effort to show the app police is in full force its like letting a robber hit house after house and you have seen how he does it, watch as he moves about, picks up what he leaves behind THEN nab him and say your doing your job all in the long run.

    Speaking of apps I found one that keeps track of all the sales and free limited download periods. Called AppMiner. I've found a few games that were offered free. Some I still play and most i've already deleted cause they were bad but didn't cost me 99cents.

    Appsniper is also a good one to track sales. I use it daily and have got great deals.

    You can put something you got an eye on in the list and when it sees a cut in the price it notifies you.

    Not being an app dev, I haven't seen anything in writing about the actual AppStore approval process and who's responsible. There must be someone at the top of chain that says go / no go.
