Moron Test- ripoff of Idiot Test?

The app Moron Test, which is climbing in the Top Paid Apps list, seems to be a complete ripoff of Idiot Test, which I previously downloaded for free, and now which seems to be off the app store. Any comments? Anyone TOFTT?

No, I think you guys misunderstood, I didn't buy it. I downloaded the Idiot Test for free. I would never, ever, ever buy this app.

Yep that is right. Moron Test is a complete rip off. The free cloned version was forced to remove themselves due to copyright violation.

Nexx Studio has been working with Ryan Curtis (original creator) to bring a special version of Idiot Test to the iPhone platform.

Yay! A dev! But do you know what happened to the original Idiot Test that was on the app store? Or was it created without Ryan Curtis's permission, so it was pulled?

Yep that is exactly the case. They did it without permission and it sure was a horrible clone.
