An odd thing happened last night. Our list of New App Store Applications picked up 5 applications, all nearly the same, all approved at the same time. These apps had been waiting in queue for a while -- some as far back as 8/25.
Sideways - $1.99 - 8/27 - http://148apps.com/app/289146621
Lettera - $1.99 - 8/25 - http://148apps.com/app/289247074
Wide Email - $1.99 - 8/25 - http://148apps.com/app/289274499
Touch Type (Landscape Email) - $0.99 - 9/4 - http://148apps.com/app/288916937
Compose - $4.99 - 9/11 - http://148apps.com/app/290987348
It looks like someone at Apple made the decision, finally, that these applications were OK and didn't duplicate the functionality of Apple apps.
