Love Last.fm? You may like its eponymous iPhone app. Not familiar with the service? Do yourself a favor and try AOL Radio or Pandora instead. It’s not that the app is bad, per se, it’s just confusing and inconsistent, especially compared with the competition.
So the iPhone and iPod touch lack an FM tuner. So what? AOL Radio fills the gap and then some, serving up some 350 stations of streaming-radio goodness. It’s a fantastic app for music and talk-radio fans, and it doesn’t cost a penny.
If you do, the latest app store offering is perfect for the super-rich iPhone owner who has everything. The I Am Rich app created by Armin Heinrich, displays a glowing red icon on your iPhone to help remind you, just how much better you are than the rest of the huddled masses.

Recently the company spotted your Bloomberg-free iPhone and created an application for it, thus securing dominance over all media.
Although the iPhone comes with a Yahoo stock application that provides similar information, the Bloomberg app, with stellar features like an international news service, effortlessly one-ups Yahoo.
NullRiver released NetShare, a tethering app, in the iTunes App Store only to have it pulled after a few minutes. the app would have allowed iPhone owners to share their mobile internet connection with their laptop.
Yeah we know, it would have been great.
NullRiver states on their website that they haven't received any word from Apple on why the app was pulled from the store, and that the app doesn't violate any developer or App Store agreements.
"Furthermore, plans(unless specifically designated for tethering usage) cannot be used for any applications that tether the device (through use of, including without limitation, connection kits, other phone/PDA-to computer accessories, Bluetooth® or any other wireless technology) to Personal Computers (including without limitation, laptops), or other equipment for any purpose."
Nullriver hopes that Apple will release the app in countries without tethering restrictions in their mobile contracts.
