    Snap 'em up Apple fans. It's not everyday Apple gives something for free. If I bought an Apple product the first thing I'd do is download 'The Id-iot Test 3'. Then again, maybe not... The results may embarrass me.
     
  3. Actually, Apple gives away a free app every week in their spotlight.

  5. Very very funny you foolish little man.

    Apple was first to the Touchscreen Smartphone Revolution in 2007, and that's a little history factoid you will never change.

    The App Store is the most popular download source in the world, right up there with Game of Thrones torrenting.
     
  6. You don't have to worry, Apple steals all their ideas anyways, they couldn't come up with an original thought if it bit them in the butt.
     
  7. Ha ha. You must be the proud owner of one of them obsolete 3 months after I bought it android phones that your company won't let you use cause it's so racked with virii ;) Let's see, when did Google\Samsung\Microsoft come out with their iPhone...I mean, umm, smart phones. Apple Newton anyone?

    I've downloaded every single one, I'll try them out when I'm on lunch.
     
  9. Touch screen mobiles of the quality that exist today was set by Apple with the 1st iphone launch. The App store was 1st launched by apple. iPhone became the 1st best mobile phone that pushed things forward in its direction. Android copied the mobile structure model from iPhone, os ideas stolen from iPhone, notification centre stolen from mac os. Basically anything that looks good, attractive and useful in the modern world is stolen from iPhone by Android. So don't get me wrong Apple and Android both are leaders. But, in a different way. Apple leading inventors, Android leading stealers.
