  1. The App Store is starting to get watered down already. I can only imagine how many different companies will have a Mahjong, Solitaire, Texas Hold ’em, Black Jack, etc. I wish they would quit w/ the repetative games already.

    • Let the Market work. As people don’t buy their apps, they will either improve it until it is good, or they will eventually disappear. The free market always brings us what we want.

    • Yeah, I have a feeling some will be sweet and others will be so-so…that is why we will be doing reviews of them. So, you know which ones are worth spending your money on.

    • I appreciate the reviews you guys do. I have passed on alot of software thanks to you guys. IMO, I’d rather have Brooke restore her iPhone as opposed to me restoring mine. LOL.

      And Sudoku. Don’t forget Sudoku:)

      You’re right, but the PC and (to a lesser degree) the DS market is the same. But you still get top quality stuff.

      There may be crap in the store, but there’s still gonna be gold like “Super Monkey Ball”, “Spore” etc…

      Those apps look very crappy. The fact is right now most folk developing for the iPhone/iPod are in money gouge mode. When the store launches, folk are going to make money even if they write total garbage, simply because there’s idiots out there who will buy stuff immediately just because they can. Then the market will settle down. I’ll happily try ANYTHING on the Appstore that’s free. But $5 to draw circles around rocks?

      Nah, I’ll pass and stick with “Super Monkey Ball” thanks.

  2. WOW dont those apps just look


  3. Jeez, just makes a mockery of it all when Apple let stuff like this through.

  4. THIS is why there was originally not app store.

    • No…this is why Apple is being careful about who it lets into the App Store.

      I think I’ll start waiting for AIS to review the app before downloading and buying it.

      You guys do a GREAT JOB!!!!


  5. I hate double posting so soon but

    We have been given free apps by some remarkable people who’s only payment is a thank you

    And there accomplishments make these poxy little apps look infantile

    Saying that any normal child would turn there nose up at these laughable excuse of an application

  6. I find it funny how people over at howardforums claim that the iPhones target audience isn’t casual users that need MMS, Voice Recording, etc but Apple lets crap like this in that obviously appeals to non-power and casual users.

  7. that looks like crap, how did they get accepted?

    • UncleBoogie says

      The Mahjong game looks quite good if you like that sort of thing. (I do, but not enough to pay that for it.) But the rest… Yeah, garbage.

      And saying about Apple letting crap like this in… Look at game consoles where the console maker has to say “okay” to anything that’s released. Look at the unmitigated that gets released on them.

      It’s all about the Benjamins…
