    Wait, isn't this pretty much copying what Amazon does with their appstore? I mean since it came out they have been offering pay apps for free everyday.

    I wouldn't even credit Amazon's app store for giving away a free paid app everyday. This sort of business strategy isn't exactly new. Btw, there is an app called "Free App a Day" for iOS and I believe Android as well where you get a free app sponsored by a company. It's pretty cool and I've gotten some sweet apps for free through this. Apple is merely behind by about 5 years as usual.

    And whats wrong with rectangles? Rectangles have been around since time began and will continue to be around for some time to come. I've never heard of anyone being averse or allergic to rectangles.
