15-Year Old Pwnes Apple App Store Quality Check

Today I am presenting to you, the iPhone App Handy Light. Possibly developed by a 15-year old and with the Fisher Price look and feel, it has got nothing more to it than five simple colors in which you can make the screen glow respectively. This might come in handy as torchlight. However, running in the background, is an app, which lets you tether your internet connection over Wifi.

Apple app store needs strict quality checks. However, this $.99 torchlight app was so simple that it could not give them a thought that such capabilities can co-exist in this KISS from a 15 year old!

Using this app, you can use your iPhone as a 3G modem to dial an Internet connection from your computer. I know. You will say this can already be done but, the catch with Handy Light is that you do not pay the stupid $20 per month that AT&T so badly wants from you for dialing an internet connection using the 3G modem in your iPhone.

As obvious, such awesomeness does not remain hidden for long and as word started spreading, Apple came to know about this app. Apple has now removed Handy Lights from the app store. However, those who have it installed already, can still reap the benefits.
