Excellent hypocrisy there Apple

For those wondering what I'm talking about, original Tram Tracker icon was asked by Apple to remove an iPhone drawing from his hand

No, and you didn't answer my question :p

I'm curious as to how you found this app, since it's useless here in Aus.

In answer to your original post, perhaps it's different enough to get through,
or they've relaxed a bit :confused1:

Found it via Pandorabox (http://appshopper.com/productivity/pandorabox), a great app to discover each days apps that have just turned free / just arrived on the app store free

Actually there is a difference. You're not allowed to use depictions/drawings/renderings of an Apple product. You can however use a photo/screenshot.

The above appears to be a screenshot of the simulator, the tramTRACKER icon was a drawing of the iPhone.

Actually theres no mystery there. If you want to depict an Apple product you need to show the real thing, not an artistic impression.

Lol at some of the Korean Apps. Their UI design has a way to go :D

Perhaps, but you got to remember they've had the iPhone for less than a year.
While their UI does have much room for improvement, they do have some cool stuff though, such as the above program.

I was in Seoul as the iphone was released last year, and they've come a long way since then (trying to get my app out before the phone arrived)... But even now they still love their obscenely complex, feature complete apps that often leave the UI polish out all together.

Some of the apps that came out in Korea within weeks of the iPhone blew my mind though.

I sometimes think that kinda sums up Korea/Korean's.
Just don't tell my wife I said that :P


We need a 대리운전 service here in Aus I think.
