Apple rejects any app that just seems suspicious, a year ago i read about a app that was called "Hacking the phone" Which was a strategy game they rejected it because it sounded like the app was gonna hack their iphone. They later accepted it. They don't actually look at each app and see if it works, has bugs, viruses etc. That would take about 8 years for a app to get approved because Apple gets many app applications, They just have a computer that checks the files of the apps checks of there are viruses, any traces of malware etc. If not approved, if there is rejected. How do you think the tethering app got in? It was hidden, if they tested each and every app separately, it would take about 80 thousand employees just to test apps.
I do have both Droid and iPhone 4, I use my droid alot because it has more features, and obviously has gone further than an iPhone where apple is just beginning such as the background wallpapers... Where other smartphone's have had those from beginning.
Apple can be protective, every company is, but Apple goes beyond that.

Lastly, the recent rule on JB is a good thing.

Oh, unhappy day for those that have downloaded that app.

Also the only reason I purchased an iPot, IPhone 3G and an iPhone 3GS is because of JB'ing, so when Apple stop all JB's, where you going to go then.
Also all thoughts widgets for toggling settings are built into android os, no need to modify the system, just so you can do basic tasks.

It was just a warning out loud for anyone thinking about it or doing it.
And I agreed with the language barrier that is created with many, many members.

You're naive if you think this isn't happening right now with iPhone apps. There's already been lawsuits, there's already been exposure of apps doing it. Even Steve Jobs complained about Flurry (I think it was) getting data that Apple was not aware of and using it to expose the coming launch of the iPad. These are examples that we know about, what about all the apps that haven't been discovered yet?We're all just toymakers in the game of life.

I have a simple fix for this since everyone is for pointing out problems not solutions, especially since this affects android and iphone (mainly jailbroken). This looks to be usable for both android and iphone
Android Antivirus & Security - Lookout
Whoops...nevermind. the iphone version isn't available yet.

Jailbreaking has always been illegal, It was modifying a Apple device which they prohibited against, which is now legal, but it still voids our warranty. I don't "hate" Apple, infact i have every single one of their products They do make great products, i just say in my personal opinion that they are being too commanding and should open up a little and stop being over protective. I like Apple products, and I love my Android, is there a reason i can't like both?

Android Antivirus & Security - Lookout - You know what's funny is that now that I've been on both sides of the fence (Android/Apple), I can honestly say you will never know what you are talking about when you are bashing one or the other unless you have owned BOTH. Apple's closed system has it's draw backs and benefits, and Adroid's open source has the same. When you go off on moronic rants like yours, Jonnyboy (whether it's for Apple or Android), you just sound like an ignorant Fanboy....except Apple fanboys usually know that Safari can't sue Apple lol. You should spend less time spewing out ignorant theories and read a little.
