Author Claims Eight Copies of ‘I Am Rich’ Sold Before Apple Yanked It From App Store

The L.A. Times’s Mark Milian interviews I Am Rich creator Armin Heinrich, who claims eight copies were sold.

After initially approving it for distribution, the company has since removed it from the store. Heinrich, a German software developer, has yet to hear back from Apple concerning the removal. “I have no idea why they did it and am not aware of any violation of the rules to sell software on the App Store,” Heinrich said in an email with The Times today.

I don’t believe him, frankly. This quote from Heinrich doesn’t ring true to my ears:

“I’ve got e-mails from customers telling me that they really love the app,” adding that they had “no trouble spending the money,” he said.
