    Has anyone else noticed that iDemocrat now costs $.99 again? It appears to have been put out today by a different developer, but it's the same name and does basically the same thing (which is basically nothing except put a picture on your iPhone).

    Kinda strange that it just happens to cost money again on the night Barack Obama accepts the Democratic nomination. Sure, Mr. Developer... it's all just a coincidence, right?

    If there's a free one and a 99 cent one, wouldn't people just get the free one?

    Yadav made the original one, which is free now, and still lame.

    That other guy is lame for:

    1. Duping an app that sucks.
    2. Charging for it.

    lol I'm going to go out on a limb and say "yes".

    But, that's not the point. The point is to call attention to a developer that is obviously ripping off someone else's app to make a quick buck. I find it interesting that Apple would allow a duplicate app like this. I mean, same name and everything?? Veddy interesting...

    What fascinates me even more is why anybody would even buy it.

    I can't understand why anyone would even download the free one.

    Maybe the same reason why people would spend $999.99 (forgot the price so I could be off on that) to display a gem on their iPhone ;)
