    Sometimes apps don't show up for awhile.. if those apps are on the store, google their main websites and get the direct links ;)

    None of those look worth digging too hard for.

    The skateboard one looks like a cheap copy of Touchgrind and the exam one is made by AAAplications.

    The impossible exam seems like some sort of scam to me....
    You get an iTunes card if you're the 21st person to get it right.
    However, developer says you can't get it right, but then you can pay an additional $.99 for the answer key?
    Something in here just doesn't add up and smells fishy to me...

    There's a game like that on jailbroken phones. It just asks some actual trivia questions and other random questions that make no sense, and the right answer makes no sense. But it was free on the jailbroken phones. It seems like this developer wants tons of people to buy the app and the answer key for $4 in order to win $10. I assume that the developer won't announce a winner for a while in order to get more purchases. This developer also copied a game from the papi developer and removed it later. It may not be a scam as long as the developer pays the $10 as promised, but the game itself is likely a bunch of baloney. I'm sure that if this developer makes money with this app, he/she will be producing apps like this for all categories (Sports, Movies, Geography, History, etc.). It will be like the DS Effects developer with his/her crappy apps.

    I don't know, for some reason, impossible exam looks fun. I know, I hate AAAplications, but this looks fun for some reason. I might get it, to see what it's like

    Oh, it's this developer....that about says it all!!
    And while it's not a "scam" to actually pay up the $10 as promised, it is a scam when the developer will for sure hold off on announcing it as long as possible. In essence, what this will do is have consumers purchasing this app hoping to be the 21st person only to find out (though they'll never find out) that they were in fact the 100th person to answer correctly (or whatever number you want to use)...

    At least wait for the price to drop to $0.99. Otherwise, this developer will think that this app is worth $3! I like the fact that there is a "Tell A Friend" option so that it will make it easier for more people to purchase this garbage. At least it was free on jailbroken phones. It's not even this developer's concept to have a quiz with nonsense on the iPhone (see here from May of 2008: http://iphonefreakz.com/2008/05/14/iquiz-10-impossible-quiz-clone-for-your-iphone-or-ipod-touch/ AND http://justanotheriphoneblog.com/wordpress/2008/05/22/new-iphone-game-the-impossible-quiz/ ). Maybe I will write to the developers of the other game so that they will port it to the AppStore. At least the presentation of the app on the jailbroken phones looks more polished. The quality of the version on the AppStore looks crappy.

    This app can be fun in a dumb kind of way because it contains trivia that makes no sense, but this developer seems to put out some crap apps and should not be encouraged. That's my opinion on this one!

    I used to hate these guys for the papi incident, but they gained my respect back with the impossible exam. This app isn't crap and I think it will make it to the top 25 it's great

    No im not the developer, I actually beat it. I sent in my submission to win but I was told the contest already ended. I'll paste the email from the developer:
    So I responded asking why it doesn't say it on the description and I recieved a fast response saying:

    I don't really see anything suspicious here.

    There are 50 questions. From 1-10 I would rate it a 7 on how fun it is. I like these kind of games not specifically for the iphone like in addicting games I'm a huge fan of the impossible quiz. It was worth the price but I just wish it could be 100 questions wrong. In total,I'm not a loser playing it forever constantly, but it took me about an hour in all to beat. It is pretty addicting because once you get one wrong u have to start from the beginning. Overall it was worth it and like I said, I just wish there were more questions.

    So if you beat it, it's not really that impossible, is it? And it has absolutely no replay value! Sounds like crap to me. And since the developer received 40 submissions already (within one day!), it's far from an impossible exam! And $3 for an app with 50 questions? It sounds like a scam to me. Nothing against you, but the developer is showing once again that he/she is a crooked developer. The quality of the app itself looks unpolished as well. I don't know how people pay $3 for this garbage, and they won't pay it for a quality app like Bugdom that has exceptional graphics and takes more than 1/2 hour to complete.
