Gizmodo: Free iPhone Tetris Getting Pulled from App Store

by Volker Weber


Tris, the free version of Tetris for the iPhone that we loved ('cause it was free!) is being pulled from the App Store. Apparently, The Tetris Company called up Apple and it no likey. Its creator, Noah Witherspoon says that while he thinks their copyright claim is thin—and would be thinner still if he called it "Trys"—he doesn't really have the resources to fight it in court, so he's removing it from the store on Wednesday. Download it while you can folks! Another depressing reminder why we need the iPhone app black market.

Tris is still available here>

Danke für den Hinweis, ich habe es mir gleich mal herunter geladen, mal sehen, ob es dann auch auf dem iPhone draufbleibt wenn Apple es aus dem Store entfernt.

Ja, habe schon mehrere Apps gesehen, die nicht mehr im Store sind und die erhalten bleiben.

Kollegen haben sich beschwert, daß eine sehr beliebte Applikation (Bier trinken) nach dem Entfernen im Appstore auch von den iphones verschwand. Repeat after me ... (or vowe) DRM is bad for the customers.
