Apple Petty Apple is petty. Amazon, Kobo, and others have changed their applications to conform to Apple's App Store rules, and if there's one word that describes the situation these booksellers are in, it's petty. Still, it's leading to good things: Kobo has announced it's going to bypass the App Store by writing an HTML5 e-reader for iOS (and thus, for other HTML5-capable mobile devices).

If I was a developer of mobile applications, I would never choose Apple.
You have to pay a overpriced charge to actually get your damn app on the store before Apple complains to you about it not being suitable.
I can remember when I made an RSS Reader for iOS, spent all that time to find out I had to pay some money. WTF Apple?
These companies spend all this money developing apps for Apple for Apple to turn them down, I don't understand how these companies havne't quit.
