    I see no reason for shock. Apple asked Cisco if they would release the rights to the word iPhone and Cisco said no so Apple decided they would simply name it iPhone anyway and take the lawsuit. That's against a company MUCH bigger than Apple....... and you're surprised they did it to a nobody dev? I think not.

    does not matter regardless. He is in the UK, Apple is in the US.

    I wonder what jailbreak features Apple will be inspired to include with next major iOS update?
    I don't know if anyone else has mentioned this, but the PhotoAlbums+ app was also duplicated on iOS5. you can now create and edit photoalbums all on the iPhone. Looks amazingly close to PhotoAlbums+

    I'm guessing Apple really does want future jailbreaking! Create an app: get rejected: put it on cydia: make some coin: Apple notices: Then comes out with their own app.

    This is a thin line Apple stole his idea I bought it for $10.00 and another app from Cydia that let's you use your idevice while it's syncing with iTunes. I don't know apple didnt want 3rd party apps at the time when the guy made and relased WiFi Sync logo in all, he also made a small chunk of change apple seen this then said they would relase it for free (thanks Apple for not charging us a second time for the same app) this sounds very wrong, maybe they should get a pat on the ideas like apple dose and there would be no issue of stealing on a Corp level. And I feel for the guy cause he will never receive the proper credit for creating releasing now bing jacked by Apple good luck on this one guy hope you win.

    Wow, that's amazing. They definitely could have used another icon at least.

    Screw him.

    DO NOT BUY THIS APP!
    I'm glad someone else understands this (although I'm not glad that you were also intentionally duped out of $10.) The guy whines about Apple using the most generic of ideas, something that is a guaranteed natural progression of technology, yet he doesn't appreciate the fact that he was able to make a ton of money off paying jailbreakers for something that ke KNEW didn't work. People like him are the reason other people pirate apps. Don't feel sorry for the jackass.

    If he patented his application before Apple has, he should sue. But I'm sure most jailbreak developers don't patent anything which is their own fault.

    If I was a developer, you bet your *** I'd be patenting anything I made for iOS if it wasn't something yet provided by Apple.

    I say that because the wifi symbol is a standard symbol already and the arrow circle that Apple has in the image above is their standard for syncing. You see this same circle while syncing mobileme or timemachine, and several other items of thier's. So pretty natural for Apple to just combine the two.
    did you forget what apple did with 'app store', everybody uses 'store' and everybody uses 'app' so why can't others make an 'app store'? Because apple thinks they can do everything and the others may not do anything.

    this is the same, they may steal from others but don't dare to steal from them.

    Did anyone else notice Apple also basically implemented LockInfo in iOS5? It even has the InfoShade feature.

    I'm sure it worked once a long time ago. The point is it hasn't worked for a long time and DEFINITELY ISN'T COMPATIBLE WITH CURRENT ITUNES VERSIONS. And the scumbag doesn't tell people that or return their money when they complain that they paid ten dollars for crap. He knows exactly what's going on and sits back collecting more money. The really sad thing is he's probably going to rake in a bunch more money because of all this publicity. I wish saurik would just pull the app.

    Fraud.
