Well its quite unique i'll give them that. Be interesting to see if this has worked for the dev or not. Too many people wait a week or two just to hopefully save a dollar in case of a price drop, find this quite funny that this app goes up in price.

Get rid of consumable in-app purchases entirely. I'm fine with expansion packs, or service subscription fees.

Disallow ad networks (iAd included) in paid software, with "paid software" being set in stone at the app launch.

Allow direct downloads of old versions, so we don't have to curate our own collection of app backups just in case a developer pulls a Spell Sword.

It's all wishful thinking, of course, since this kind of slimy consumer hostile crap clearly makes money for developers and Apple.

I'd love the ability to delete the preloaded crap that comes preinstalled.
