Apple removes NetShare from the App Store within hours

by Volker Weber

Apple has apparently put the blocks on an iPhone application that turns the device into a modem for a PC. Macrumours reports that Canadian software company Nullriver Inc. released the application, called NetShare, yesterday through Apple's iTunes store, but it was withdrawn within hours. ... Nullriver insists that the application did not violate Apple's developer guidelines.

NetShare turns the iPhone into a Wi-Fi hotspot, much like Joikuspot does on Symbian S60 phones. It's good to see that Apple is as heavy-handed as we expected them to be.
