You have a choice: Either surf The Real Internet or surf Steve Jobs Idea of what the Internet Should be.
Seems pretty clear to me.

Yes, google in this case is only a third party... but on the other hand the LAST thing Apple wants is average users going "...this app works on something else? What is Andriod?" and then they have an issue...
other App Store rejects have been more idiotic...:
"...too similar to the iPhone's built-in Maps application and could offer features not found in the native program. "
I think that can LITERALLY be used for every single app in the app store - especially since there have been apps that are EXACT copies of other apps, and gotten approved without issue... that and the above "Rejected Message" can be applied to all Apps, because they are supposed to "offer features not found in the native program."
THAT'S THE POINT OF THE APPS STORE! TO ADD FUNCTIONALITY!

Mostly skins so you can customize your home screen.
Funny how an open and free market works. Apple are the Communists of tech innovation.
How I agree with you. Why would anybody say "ok" to such conservative approach to technology and basic rights of people ? Wake up people! Ban this crap till freedom is acheieved.

It's these kinds of things that are really stupid and immature. There's a reason why Jobs is called Jobs: He is a business owner, and he's out to enforce everything the business wants. His name also makes sense because he treats his employees like gold but his users like crap. He only cares about his job and not his users' and fanboys' welfare, hence the name "Jobs".

So as a developer I get make two versions of an app;
A. app with all content (sell anywhere)
B. app with content filtered (only for Apple)
Chuckle - what idiots
If I saw the "Android almost winner claim" in an iPhone app, I would likely give it a look see.

Android is far superior to anything Apple can deliver, and I think they know it.
