    Default Warning: iPhone App Scam
    This website is selling many free applications for $25, its a scam and don't buy from them, lets work on bringing them down, message them or whatever you want to do and tell them it isn't right to sell developers hard work that is free, well most of them.

    This guy is a complete a$$ hole! He also runs - iphoneunlocking.org.uk and charges 22.99 for ziphone 2.5 or whatever... the release in feb2008, and also links to blogs etc... ALL THIS INFO IS FREE if one searches the web..

    And furthermore, he is so dumb that he hasn't even got his own security on authorizing individual generated url's that are encrypted to the buyers e-mail address.. i.e. hidden link that can be viewed once only.

    So here is the BUY NOW PRICE > IPhone Unlocking - Unlock Your Iphone Today!

    What a complete fraudster!!!

    Update:
    I just bought the pack and it actually has some added bonus features that definitely make it worth it:

    1) [Mock] copy/paste - adds a notes page at the bottom of Safari that creates an editable snapshot of the text on the screen.
    2) EZ Sync - allows you to easily transfer music from the iPhone back to somebody else's computer. It won't work for your own computer for some reason, but will work on your friends' computers... (according to the developer, there is a bug/safeguard in iTunes that causes the imported library to overwrite the existing iTunes library if they came from the same source -- I don't really know what that means)
    3) "Toast" mode - causes the exterior surface of the iPhone unit to be heated (warning: this may take up to 15 minutes) to 300 degrees, which easily allows you to use it to make toast, bake pies or even start fires in the remotest parts of the California dry forests (Tip: use the nifty "location aware" featureto remember exactly where you made toast, baked pies, or set fires)

    man you got ripped off!
    1) this has been out for a while. you can copy and paste stuff from websites to your email and its free
    2) there are so many free apps on the web that can do that. downloads.com has plenty.
    3) my ifone does that out of the box. my face got burned because of this feature. its kinda cool but painful u know?

    but it was all free! if i were u, i would as for a refund! my 2 cents

    These guys are good! Just give a look at their reviews, they average 5 stars. I couldn't do that even if I wrote all of them myself ; )
