The Uber-Lame (yet Genius) Developer

September 7, 2010 Leave a comment

My last post mentioned Apple’s AurioTouch spectral analysis app, which I was fairly impressed with considering it’s just a free example. Turns out it’s being sold in the App Store by some random “developer” for $0.99! The feature list exactly matches the sample’s. Absolutely no value-added.

Seems pretty lame to me, but what is there to criticize? If Apple allows it, you might as well make a couple bucks. Maybe I should be scouring Apple’s examples for Apps that I think could make a dime as-is. It’s a simple business model, that’s for sure.

I couldn’t help but laugh when reading the app’s reviews, which of course were thick with enhancement requests. I think the reviewers might be disappointed by a lack of updates!

(2 out of 5 stars) If you write an FFT program then why not annotate the frequency axis in Hz??? I’ll expect this in the next upgrade

Don’t hold your breath…

Here’s the App
