    Umm, that's one of the demo apps (I guess not the exact same graphics, but still the same app) and identical (again, except for the particular graphics) to Apache Lander. What's so special about it again?

    I just looked at that one earlier and decided it was too close to Apache Lander which I have and I don't much like. (controls too sensitive)

    Yep your right...looks like Apache Lander was based off this demo. Controls on this seem a little smoother. Now I have to decide which one to delete :rolleyes:

    Wow, this thing *is* the demo Apple gives to all developers for free when they download the SDK. All the "developer" did was compile it and put it up on the App Store, no changes whatsoever, graphical or otherwise. In fact, if you read the description, he says openly that's what he did; I'm surprised Apple allowed it. Here, check for yourself, MacRumors posted screenshots before OS 2.0's release!

    Of course, the Apache game just took the code and added their own graphics, and *didn't* mention it...

    All DRM not created equal...

    I have a bunch of DRM surprisingly appearing and working from the iPhone.
    I believe it may be the higher bit rate songs, ones above 128K the 256K ones.

    I'm going to have to look at it closer. :p

    I really wanted to have this ability via the iPhone. That it's come so fast is pretty darn great. :cool:

    oops wrong thread; hey it's late.

    Except as a free app it could create a lot more attention to his other apps, especially pay ones.

    Lol it's a brave idea... I'm not sure it'll be around for that long though. Somehow I don't see apple letting another person compile and submit their code.. if it happened at all I'm pretty sure apple would want to include it themselves

    It's the latest incarnation of the old arcade game Lunar Lander, which you can play on the web here. Use arrows to tilt, space bar to fire your jets.

    Oh boy, I won! :)

    Exactly.

    That's what makes it ok. If he DIDN'T admit it, that woudl be a problem.

    But he's not claiming it's his. He's saying "here, try out Apple's demo app."

    What in the world is wrong with that?
