For want of Control, Apple Keeps Innovation Out Of App Store
Apple's desire for over-control of the platform blocks innovative apps that can otherwise only be picked up and installed on Jailbroken phones through the alternate stores like Cydia and Rock (recently announced merged). The latest example; FolderEnhancer (app on it's way) will add new features to iPhone folders - iphonehacks.com/2010/09/folder. Be sure to watch the video. As with many other apps that have improved the user experience for those of us with Jailbroken phones, there is no logic to keeping apps like these out of the App Store for everyone to take advantage of.
