Apparently, the FCC is asking Apple, AT&T and Google some questions as part of an investigation into the recent rejection by Apple of the Google Voice app. The FCC wants to know if AT&T had a hand in that rejection, and why Apple rejected it. See the full story at the Washington Post below:
The google voice app was rejected by Apple’s app store. It quickly went underground as a result driving more people like me to jailbreak their iPhones. <rant> I don’t understand this childish paranoia on the part of Apple and AT&T. I am pretty much disillusioned with the whole Appstore approval process. The Skype app for example was castrated to work only on Wifi. After I gave so much of my hard earned money to ATT and Apple, I need them both to take a humility pill and stop playing these games with app developers. </rant>
I just got an email about the iPhone SDK 2.2.1. From what is says, it is : ” required for development with devices updated to iPhone OS 2.2.1″. That is weird, what in the new update (which just came out recently) required a new SDK update?
I am downloading it now, I am curious!
Haha, no, it’s not what you think. It’s a medical dictionary of medical drugs on the iPhone. I installed this when I first got my iPhone 3G. I have actually used it myself to check my blood pressure med against my alergy meds. Not bad at all. 🙂
Full disclosure: I have friends who work for Epocrates.
