Got a laugh out of an article on Apple Insider. Evidently only Apple’s own apps are allowed to use multi touch. It isn’t like AI is a detractor, they are the ultimate Apple fan boys. Still they report on an app being rejected from the only source of apps for Apple’s phone OS devices. The developers of Web Albums evidently dared to implement a pinch to zoom feature in their app and it was summarily rejected until that feature was removed. I guess when you are Apple Electronics you have to maintain any edge that you can manage, even at the expense of those developing for your own platform. Like the title says, you can’t make shit like this up, my Nexus One has better multi touch support than Apple’s own products. I guess HTC shouldn’t feel too bad about attracting Apple’s wrath…they even eat their own children.
