Commodore 64 Emulator for iPhone Approved by Apple

Remember the Commodore 64 emulator app that was initially rejected from the App Store? With changes, it’s now accepted and available for $5. (One of the changes was to hide the BASIC interpreter, alas.) Aron Allen has a nice interview with the app’s lead developer.

Update: Rene Ritchie details how to access the hidden BASIC interpreter.

Update 2: Apple giveth, and Apple taketh away. The C64 app is no longer available from the store. Methinks Apple took none too kindly to the wink-wink-nudge-nudge “hiding”, rather than removal, of the BASIC interpreter.
