View Full Version : iPad apps that aren't really apps...

31st May 2010, 12:07 PM
Beware of apps that are little more than links to website pages... I have downloaded three paid apps in the past week that are little more than links to web pages. One of them was Total Immersion, a swimmer's app, the other two were Jaws and FrenchWorld. The last two were from Sam Mathew/Paniker Media and consist of a series of links to Wikipaedia. Each cost $A1.19. I reckon they're a complete ripoff. Beware. Surely the Apply people should vet these things to ensure there is some value added before they post them?

I've reviewed on iTunes, but everyone should know this...

???? Have you seen screenshots ???? Have you read description? 98% apps on the appstore are useless....

98%? That's a very scientific and exact statement.

I do not mean games

Even still.

Ok, it is my opinion.

If you report the issue to the iTunes team, there's a very good chance you'll get a refund and help Apple stop this kind of thing in the future.
