    Hi
    Just passing on a thank you to APPLE for letting the apps store become a flea market. When I first got the iTouch I was amazed and got caught up in getting all the apps I could afford. Well now after a few months of getting the odd good program and a bunch of stuff that I don't use anymore ( my fault for not looking at the reviews closer ) I've changed my viewing to once a week and even then won't buy anything unless there's lite version to try first. I'm probably missing out on some great (NOT ) stuff but I'm saving a lot of $$ now.
    :mad:

    I'm not sure Apple read these forums....
    If you read these forums then all your future purchases will be good ones. I have only bought one crappy game out of many since I joined the forums!

    that is false

    sometimes these forums overhype apps, and just because these forums say its great, you still are let down,

    so, the rules are

    dont buy by impulse
    dont buy by hype (what reviews and others are saying)
    try the lite version if applicable
    you'll still get burned occasionally, but there are some good apps out there, maybe 100/15,000
    but its still better to have the appstore than to not have it

    Oh come on.

    If this was like the DS, then there would be no fieldrunners, 7cities, rolando, creeps, up there, pocket god, blue defense, blue attack. The list goes on on an on. The truth is if it wasn't a flea market the appstore would die, and the idevices would die as a gaming platform. Why you ask? Cause it would be no different then the DS or PSP. Less games coming out and ONLY from big developers. Look at the big devs now. Spore, guitar rock tour, motochaser, Cro mag rally. If there was no indie devs, sure it would be more organized but the gaming would suck.
    Ipotch needs indies to survive
    And the indies need ipotchs
    Apple needs indies if they want to take it seriously

    I think the OP is a rather elaborate troll all of his posts have been about hating apple and the app store. We don't like trolls here.
