• Apple Forcing Developers to Remove Usefulness

    One of the most useful iPhone monitoring applications iStat ($1.99 on the App Store) has been forced to remove one if its key features at the request of Apple. In the initial version of iStat for iPhone there was a nifty little "Free Memory" button that freed up iPhone RAM improving speed/performance. Sadly this feature is removed with the the version 1.1 update live now on the App Store.

    According to iStat's developer:
    iStat’s Free Memory function was removed at Apple’s request.
    This decision was completely out of our hands. Please note that all other apps with Free Memory appear to have been removed or updated without their Free Memory function too.

    This was not taken lightly—we examined our choices, taking a lot of public feedback on board. We apologise for any inconvenience this may have caused and we do not plan to remove any other features from iStat.

    If you choose (and you haven’t already updated), you can continue to run iStat version 1.0. You’ll miss out on new features, but you’ll get to keep the Free Memory feature.

    We are very committed to ensuring iStat is the best iPhone and iPod Touch monitoring tool. Free Memory has been removed, but a lot of other useful features will be added in its place.
