    Hi Everybody,

    Wasn't too sure where to post this, - What happens to an app on someones device, when it's removed/deleted from the App Store?
    If a user downloads it, will it always be on the device? Or will it dissapear from the iPhone/iPod without notice?

    Handylight was on the app store for a few hours before it was pulled. I grabbed it, but don't really use it. I hear Apple has a killswitch to delete apps for the iPhone remotely, but hasn't used it, where android has. If you sync it to your itunes, you can always put it back on your phone from there.

    But like MiTube, if the source changes the app becomes worthless without an update.
