    There is a God!!! I think the implications of this game coming to the app store are huge. This is nothing short of revolutionary. Who cares if it is a fart machine. This means the snobs in Cupertino are losening up a bit and this may signify more changes.

    Or that this time it slipped through …

    Or that it truly is more of an hit'n'miss affair than most think …

    Or, tying in to the above, that it's a roll of the dice - literally …

    Or, that the left hand have no clue what the right hand does …

    Well, I guess we'll see. If you're right, we should be seeing it pulled from the app store in the next day or so. But, by the language they use for the app's description, it looks like they begged and pleaded and finally Apple gave into their wishes (and actively allowed it to go through).

    Heck, we should see if these guys will develop and push for an MMS app. :D

    Doesn't look like it as there is a flood of 'fart' based apps.

    Ok, so maybe 3 isn't a flood but it seems clear that they have changed their rules.

    I'll pay a buck for a fart app (my nephew will love it) but 3 bucks stinks. :p

    Duh, you forgot one:

    http://appshopper.com/entertainment/ipooted

    How could you have missed "iPooted"?

    I expect at least 5 more fart apps by sunrise. Now my iPhone is complete. I have now totally forgot about cut and paste and MMS.

    Seriously, I don't know if I should be furious that goddarn fart apps made it to the iPhone before c/p and MMS or if I should just laugh (or even cry).

    Yeah, I guess you're right.

    Haha, yeah, that would be ironic. I mean, if an app like that were to become the first mms-app. :eek:


    Yes, that is a big part of why I never bought into the iPhone-scene.

    The fact that you guys are even supporting such a usless app is beyond me. Pull my finger has absolute no App Value and in fact it is listed is in the top 10 worst advertised app.

    Just see the bunch of mis information the dev's have put up for a quick buck.

    Devs. If you'd make something useful, you'd get a lot of support. but this is plain wrong. I bet most of the posts in this forum supporting your app are from you. Good marketing though! I'd hire you to market my useless app one day.

    -- excerpt below
    he one, the only, the original Pull My Finger.

    Featured in the LA Times, Miami Herald, MacLife's Top 10 Apple Influencers of 2008, Wired Magazine, The Guardian UK, CNET.com, and many others. (Thanks MacRumors, Ars Technica, and all the great Mac sites and fans who believed in our grand cause!)

    Hundreds of thousands of people viewed the demo. Thousands cried out for its availability in the app store. Petitions were formed. Candles were lit. And now, in Apple's Infinite Graciousness, they have allowed it to be available to you!

    You obviously don't appreciate the cultural value and revolutionary thinking that is being currently nourished within the app store. For example, just as every wise man has ever done, don't you ever wonder how much money you are earning while you sit on the toilet at work? ;)

    Best 99 cents I've ever spent :D

    The sounds are realistic enough that my mom thought I actually farted when I was playing around with the app :D
