Do you welcome apps to the iPhone made by big companies such as Tesco or Ikea? All they're out for is a quick buck and clogging up te app store. If I really wanted their new catalogue, wouldn't I just go to the shop and get one?

It's smaller, better for the environment and easier

Their new "shop" (understatement of the freakin' year) is on the outskirts of of the general urban area where I live. A good 20-30 minute drive for a catalogue is not my idea of a good time. And like super6ft7 said, it's smaller, and tree-less.

Out of all the junk that is submitted to the App Store on a daily basis why would a useful Ikea app irritate anyone? ;)

There are only useful to people with enough money to buy something from them. :p

I don't think it's possible to own an iPhone or iPod touch without the ability to afford the junk they sell at Ikea.

Ha good point. But believe it or not I have an Ikea table that last me four years and not a single issue. Knock on wood.
