The App Store and its approval process is one of Apple’s biggest headaches and one of its biggest black eyes (and will be around, causing trouble long after the antenna issue is resolved). Apps get denied just because some prickly worker is having a bad day, despite being identical in offerings to other, approved apps, or someone at Cupertino changes their mind and pulls a previously approved app. But HTML is a lovely thing, as Google demonstrates with their "apps," and now there's a whole new app store for you to check out.
More Apple patents have arrived on the scene at the USPTO website, and it looks like the Cupertino-based technology giant is conjuring up a few mobile app ideas. Currently, there are patents for three different apps that focus on travel, hotel and designer fashion shopping.

The invisibleSHIELD is really only supposed to cover the front and back of the handheld, though this package also includes transparent films that you affix to your iPhone 4's anttena band. How this prevents iPhone 4 reception loss is anyone's guess.
