    It’s important to note that Apple did remove the “Cydia” app that surfaced recently after receiving a complaint.So Ryan does stand a chance. If not Apple will probably remove it based on it’s functionality.

    Ya know this could have been avoided if he had just released his on the app store.

    This does not appear to be a ‘shameless ripoff’ of Ryan Petrich’s Display Recorder application from Cydia. The application offers different functionalities as well as user interface differences that Ryan Petrich’s application does not have, just as it is so vice versa. The application shares the same name – a common name that explains what the application does.

    There are countless flashlight applications in the App Store, of which are called ‘flashlight’ and do the same thing. They’re not ripoffs; they are just applications out there to compete with ideas that each developer thinks makes the application better than the competition.

    What an A-Hole…why file a complaint? It’s not like he’s losing money over it being in the App Store (I’m not currently jailbroken so would never had purchase his Cydia app).

    i bought this app. It is a complete mess. Not working on new iPad 3. Getting a refund now thru Apple billing department.

    It is the application totally copy from Voice Recorder HD UI, which is top downloaded recording application in AppStore. This is not right to down other product goodwill.

    I wouldn’t call taking someone else’s app and modifying it to be released in the App Store a “rip-off”. Hats off to the guy that follows the system’s regulations.

    Well then, anyone double checked the source code of both apps? Otherwise it’s speculation only to claim it is a rip-off or copy cat or something like this. iPhoneInCanada also proposes it was “stolen”… I could not judge it is just by the look at its gui.

    A lot of these comments sound like Samsung fans…Its not the same phone. There’s only so many ways to make a smart phone. ;)

    Whoever is right, there is still no Legal display recording app for the ipad. Why not? What is so bad about disply recorder or cydia that Apple rejects it?
