    biggest scam should be any games that has it a normal released price but a few hours after it, it goes free....example DoneDrinking it was 4 bucks, a few hours later it was free....

    NOW thats a real scam

    I agree with you.

    However, some applications don't show "officially" in App Store unless you search for them or you get a link from e.g. AppShopper to reach them.

    Some games enter iTunes directory with a price but when they are displayed in App Store they have that introductory price.

    I think we are a bit ahead of App Store official releases and I'm not sure every developer is aware of that.

    A patient man never gets scammed, which is why I wait a day or two before purchasing anything.

    For me crash, urban tycoon, blue skies, and galcon are the biggest. I was hopping they would come out with wifi play but im not holding my breath. Once i say sims city i new that i just burned 2 dollars on urban tycoon. In blue skies its to easy to beat and should have multiplayer. Galcon just isnt fun for me.

    6th vote toward urban tycoon, the app (you really cant call it a game) blows.

    Oh yeah and I Am Rich, what a rip off.

    The concept is great,and is well implemented but the content is just like a demo,one park,no achievements,only 4 tricks,and requires 10 minutes to unlock all the skateboards.

    I have to say Urban Tycoon is one. I didn't buy it, almost did based on the promises of 2.0 that sounded like it was done, even promised on the product page. And now I hear that's been removed. So glad I waited.

    Though, SimCity is currently a scam to me. Even after restoring my 3G 2.2 iPhone, restarts and reinstalls, it will not get past the logo screen, just drops back to the home screen. And I worry with EA being such a large company, it could take months to see a possible update fix compared to an independent developer.

    Oh my God...
    900 dollars <_<
    and its saying view video feeds simultaneously.
    Ok now seriously. Who will use a phone or an ipod as a Full blown Security.

    You know what would be horrible...
    What if you bought that and it wasnt compatible with the stuff you are using ;)

    My biggest scam has been this game called Antimatter... its horrible.
    I would rather have a gumball than that horrible game.
