    ok, for me this is taking it too far! iScarlet!!! from what i can tell you
    get one picture of one model, you get to jumble it up and then put it
    back together in the right order!......

    for anyone who doesn't believe this injustice....

    and worst of all, their charging five dollars for this crap!

    i know this happens with everything, and its the way the world works,
    but as the app store advances and we get better apps, we also get so
    many crap apps! and pretty soon the pile of crap is gonna be big enough
    to stink up the app store!

    literally! iFart is in the top ten apps!!
    and has been for quite a while....

    i dunno about anyone else but the amount of devs with no imagination,
    no ideas, no experience, probably no money and no intentions of
    making a decent app really annoy me! i hate anyone who is in it purely
    to make a quick dollar and the amount of these apps is spoiling the app
    store for me.

    Can this dev be sued for using her photo without permission? I'm assuming that's what he did.

    If you're going to make an app such as this, at LEAST put in more photos! :p

    Concept/Idea?

    Maybe Apple should do this.

    Currently, Apple gets 30% profit of all apps in the app store.

    Apple should get more than 30% of profit for crap apps.

    To me this might discourage stupid developers from making more stupid apps because they arn't getting as much money as they usually would.


    I Don't know, this thought just came up. d=

    Well, then apple would get in a war with developers if they themselves choose which apps were more than 30% so they'd start to charge ALL indy devs more than 30% which would, in my opinion, seriously kill the app store. I mean I think that 30% is a lot but when I think about all I'm getting as part of that 30% (on itunes, covers credit card transaction fees, ect) it makes sense to me. Going even to 35% would work for me. Any more and I'm out, and I'm guessing I'm not the only one who thinks that way too.

    I don't think any developer is stupid. Not everyone is a professional developer. If you can get an app to the app store and sell at least one copy/have one copy downloaded, Kudos.

    Yeah, that's terrible, and the worst part is that I'm so in love with Scarlett Johansson that I was still tempted :p

    I have a feeling if this dev charge less, much less than $4.99. This kind of things can shoot to top10 in no time :)

    4.99? That sounds like a deal!
     
  19. Yes I was going to mention that more are out there- all exactly the same except for the person, and you can bet that none of these people have actually given permission for their photo's to be used.

    You know what, this guy's starting to piss me off a bit.

    He has 4 pages of these apps in the store. Here is one called "iAstrology". Uh dude, its ASTRONOMY...a feed of NASA's picture of the day! At least get the name right!

    http://itunes.apple.com/WebObjects/MZStore.woa/wa/viewSoftware?id=300803817&mt=8

    In his description: "Help support the USA and NASA by buying this application today."

    Ya right, help support your wallet! He seems to imply that some money is going to NASA. I'd like to see proof, but the links to his website...well he seems to have no website at all.

    Now, maybe he has permission to use all of these model's images, but I doubt it. Or maybe they are public domain...doubt that too. I'd like to hear what Khalid Shaikh has to say. Show me proof you're "supporting NASA" and I'll eat my words.

    But I doubt that as well. Come on dude what gives?

    P.S. If I wanted pics of these chicks, I could go to Google Images and download hundreds of them. Okay, maybe I'm taking this too seriously, but I develop and play by the rules. On the flip side, there are barely any reviews on his appstore pages, so maybe nobody is buying this stuff anyways.
