App Store Theft

Fri, Feb 20, 2009


Ars Technica has an interesting article about a developer basically ripping off the look and feel of the popular “Classics” application.

Brought to our attention by a reader, we bring you Classics: Jane Austen by Diego Dominguez Ferrera of Ubiklabs. The application is a collection of ebooks by Jane Austen bundled together in a $2.99 package. Look familiar? It should, as the visual styling is very similar to Classics as seen in these two screenshots:

Talk about a blatant rip off.  The application has since been removed from the iTunes Store, and hopefully similar stories don’t become commonplace in the future.

Ars Technica has great in-depth coverage on the story over here.  It’s definitely worth a read.
