Apple, maker of the popular iPhone device, has removed a controversial application from its online software store.
The so called “I am rich” application was being sold at a cost of $999.99 (the maximum possible in Apple’s store), and serves no practical purpose except to remind users that they can afford to waste cash.
“The red icon on your iPhone always reminds you (and others when you show it to them) that you were able to afford this,” according to the application’s designer, Armin Heinrich. “It’s a work of art with no hidden function at all.”
Eight iPhone users apparently purchased “I am rich” before it was pulled, at least one of them by mistake. The chief danger of allowing such applications in Apple’s store, and probably the reason why this one was removed, is the potential for accidental purchases by unsuspecting users.
Mr. Heinrich apparently fails to understand this, however, claiming to have “no idea why they (removed) it.”
“I am sure a lot more people would like to buy it, but can’t do so,” he said.
Most third-party iPhone applications available at the Apple store sell for $10 or less.
