I've been thinking about this lately, I wonder how many more people have bought Threes because of the controversy?

Threes was at around 13 overall in the US, but when 2048 came out it went back up to #5

This is Apples fault. App Store approval is a joke

App Store approval process is based on their rule and guidelines, which are really detailed but never speaks about clones or copy of other games.

But I totally agree with you! They really should add a clause about clones, because now it is really annoying to see all that, and some people don't even know the original game when a clone comes out for free!

As a dev', I'd be flattered to see someone like my game enough to clone it, but only if I can keep thehype on my side and be recognized as the original dev! :P

Do you guys think we (devs) can request someone to write in their description that this is a clone of our game, or else we sue them?

Now, I agree with the rest of you folks, the amount of cloned apps in the AppStore is absolutely absurd. It truly is; however, as I was thinking about it the other day, isn't this true for real physical products, basically since the creation of science? People have been stealing others' ideas, cloning them, and making profits since forever! If any of you are familiar with Engadget, I recall (as I haven't visited their as often as I previously had) them having an entire section devoted to cloned devices called KIRF; meaning "Keeping It Real Fake." Many of these devices came from China (not being racist, this is simply where they came from), and tricked poor people who would buy gifts and didn't know the difference, as well as other such ways of profiting from stolen ideas. I remember fake iPhones, PSP's, Mac's, iPads, and anything else you can think of! So my point is, as much as we all disagree with it, and believe that it SHOULD be controlled; I guess Apple must see things the way I just explained, and perhaps THAT is why they do the things they do.

Food for thought.
