App Store Approval of the Week: HiddenApps

Christian Zibreg, writing for iDownloadBlog:

HiddenApps by David Goelzhaeuser, a 15-year-old German iOS developer, is one such example. The whole point of this free application is to let you hide Apple’s stock apps from your Home screen, like Passbook, Newsstand or Stocks – no jailbreak required.

It can also disable Apple’s iAds altogether and give you access to a Field Test mode which gives you precise readings of your cellular signal strength. You better download as it’s going down in 5, 4, 3, 2…

It’s already gone from the App Store, of course, but what a great story. I don’t know what’s funnier: that someone at Apple approved this, or that Goelzhaeuser submitted it to the App Store in the first place.
