    In case you missed - which is probably a good thing ;) ... the App Store now contains the ground breaking apps: iPee and Shy Bladder.

    Hooray! Hooray! Hooray! The madness continues!

    A new low for you, spamming this forum with links to your blog.

    Ahhh the madness, you should have just let us miss it.
    It seems to me day by day, the App store is losing its enthusiastic content dramatically.

    Apologies ... we've noticed previous forum posts where links were contained within the body of the message ... nothing regarding spam was mentioned by any users and/or posts are still "live" today.

    Anyways ... just to be on the safe side ... we've edited our original post to be less offensive.

    @Sky Blue ... Thanks for bringing this to our attention ... and again, our apologies.

    Are they serious with these? And are people seriously buying these?

    I have to admit at this point I am a bit disappointed in the app store.

    People can make and buy what apps the want, and these applications would not bother me nearly as much if there were more solid applications out there.. but the number of solid, fundamentally sound and useful apps have been few and far between.

    So they have this but no porn.:rolleyes:

    (not like I'm lobbying for it or anything but it seems hypocritical to set "strict" limitations and allow trash like this.....)

    I'm so disgusted, I don't even visit the App Store anymore. I'll check out Arn's site to see if there is anything I may want.

    When can we expect the official "J#%z in my Pants" app?

    If you think you're disgusted by this app, a brand new update for iFlatulator actually lets you record your own fart. No longer will you have to use a computer generated fart when you can use your own!


    Possibly my favorite line: "NOTE: We are not responsible for any miss-fires, accidents or other misfortunes that occur during the "Record a Fart" recording process. Record at your own risk!"

    It seems every post KRAPPS has posted in the last couple days, there has been a mention of the blog, and a link.

    Atleast Its not another Fart app or Flashlight. This could actually serve a real purpose (if it works..). At first I thought it would Just be A yellow stream...

    Anyone else think that 'KRAPPS' is quite clearly a one-man band who uses the royal 'we' to appear bigger than he is?

    It didn't seem to warrant a ban, especially without a warning. I don't (or at least didn't before the ban...see below) know the guy (girl? company?) other than from reading his (her?) posts here, but they were usually informative, and/or funny. For example, I didn't know about the apps above until his thread. However, SINCE the ban, and my question above asking what happened, I did get an email from KRAPPS saying there had been no warning. It just seems like a dramatic action.

    I don't know how many people are there. Could be one, could be two. But that's kind of standard language for a company.

    Except it's quite clearly a blog, not a company.

    I find it embarassing... "we here at KRAPPS", "we're down to a skeleton staff". It's alluding to a sense of size which, in my opinion, isn't there.

    Whatever, it doesn't matter. It's just some dude trying to build up his website. Heck, it could be him and his dog doing it. Let's stop trying to act like we being cheated here...

    Agreed. What's more frustrating is that many people ARE downloading these useless apps and putting them on the Top 25 spots so I have to press the "25 more apps" button endlessly to find anything remotely interesting. The whole "awesome because it's so useless" thing kind of passed already. It's time for more thoughtful apps to surface! Ah - if only I knew how to make apps...
