This is not a game, Apple!!!

http://itunes.apple.com/WebObjects/MZStore.woa/wa/viewSoftware?id=318335483&mt=8

What the hell is Apple doing? This is a series of videos with a link to a game they want to sell us. That's it!!!

Come on Apple! I know you guys are inconsistent with the app approval process, but at least know the difference between a game and a ...not game!!!

This is not a game! And, come to think of it, neither was the first Watchmen release with all the videos. Are there other such "games" out there?

I debated with myself (fun) about whether or not to post this here, but it frustrates the hell out of me. I left the game name out of the thread title deliberately by the way.

Does that really warrant three exclamation marks?

I think the devs choose where it goes.

Don't you?

Just figured we had enough garbage in the games section without adding things that aren't games. Guess I was wrong. Weird.

You also left the "game" name out of your entire post too, so no-one knows what you're talking about.
Fail.

Apple is too busy planning how to take over the world of computers to put any effort into the review process. Why would they care? They receive no harm if the app is 100% garbage, they can still earn commission on millions of other apps. If they put in -any- effort into their job I doubt those totally moronic "fart" applications (and there are like, 20 that does the exact same thing?), apps that contains absolutely nothing other than copied/pasted text from wikipedia, or apps that doesn't even work and has no instructions, would even exist in the app store.

I-Play showed us this earlier in the week, I thought the videos were pretty cool. It's free, if you don't like it, delete it? I wish I had as much spare time as you that you have time to complain about things you're getting for free.

Don't worry about it. We all make mistakes sometimes.
