    It was just a matter of time. It’s a brilliant app. Luckily I grabbed it a few weeks back.

    I like Apple but absolutely hate them when they do crap like this. So what if it duplicates functionality in a product you haven’t even released yet? This reminds me of when they kicked Camera+ out of the App Store temporarily because of the hidden “volume up shutter button” functionality because it was “confusing” and then lo-and-behold the exact same feature ends up in the official Camera app in iOS 5.

    You’re misrepresenting things a bit here.  They banned the app for the reason stated, but there was a long pause between that action and them adding the same functionality themselves.  Also, they re-instated the app and the functionality afterwards. 

    In that case at least, there is no reason to believe that anything apple said or did was false or self-serving.

    If this is what we have in store for us in the OS X App Store, then I want NOTHING to do with it!

    y’know what? Functionality SHOULD be able to be duplicated! I’m getting very sick of Apple’s approach these days – it seems like the large the slice of a pie a company has, the more they want.

    Keep it up, Apple – I’ve been using your product faithfully since 1990. Ubuntu looks better and better all the time.

    So where the update admitting that your tipster was totally wrong and in fact it was pulled because of unauthorized use of a private API in violation of the developer rules
