Code: GLBasic [Select]
END
 

The End
Are you tired of having to push the home button to close apps? Sick of double clicking for multi tasking?
This is an App you all have been waiting for!
It just ends automatically!

Features:
-Automatic finishing after the work is done
-Will let you switch to other Apps with no double clicking the home button
-Will continue to work at the very position it ended last time.

I'm not sure about that definition of useless - I mean, after all, a program which lets you view a 3D model of an iPhone from any direction has got to be a pretty useless waste of time (if a little fun to write) but, if the data (3d model and texture) is taken into account it is hardly likely to be the smallest entrant to such a competition.

"Hate" is a strong word.

We don't hate Apple. They do perfect job. But code signing, yes, that is a pain. And the app-store approval times.

It kept the app store a bit tidy in the first few years, but now it's full of junk, too.

good luck with trojans and security holes.

Signing is OK. If Apple does it for me.
