From a new iPhone page, “Why There’s Nothing Quite Like iPhone”:
Also amazing? The fact that there are over a million and a half
capable, beautiful, inspiring apps on the App Store. And each and
every one was reviewed and approved by a team of real live humans.
With great taste. And great suggestions. And great ideas.
Yes, thank goodness for those ideas and suggestions from App Store reviewers that make our apps so great. And thanks even more for their great taste that keeps all but the best 100 or so Flappy Bird ripoffs out of the store.
Update: What irks here, fundamentally, is that Apple is taking credit for the great apps in the App Store, rather than giving credit to the third-party developers who make them. This plays straight into the widespread misconception that everyone who makes iOS apps works for Apple.
