    for one, apple needs to stop lying. steve jobs himself said that "over 70% of developers said that they would charge nothing for their applications" yet 95% of the appstore is filled with paid applications. that pisses me off. second, i just tried to do a search for "voice" under the appstore. it came up with about 6 matches for the word "voice" first one being "voicenotes" which is exactly what i was looking for, i click it, and it tells me "no matches" THEN WHY THE F**K ARE YOU GIVING ME IT AS A SEARCH RESULT?! only 2 of the 6 matches that came up dont give me a "no matches" and the 2 that DO come up are paid applications. seriously apple... if you're going to charge $10, make it WORTH $10! everything they charge for is buggier than the stuff they DONT charge for.

    Apple doesn't control whether or not developers decide to charge for apps.

    Also, call me crazy if you like, but I don't believe that all the apps that will ever be available have been released yet...

    Omfg..
    Every hour I check back to the "Free" section of the app store.
    And a new one is added.
    For example, I just looked back and lo and behold! - "Aurora Feint - The Beginning" and "Zenbe Lists" have been added.
    Slowly but surely.. Let's be patient and not create 50 f***ing threads about the same topic because you haven't got a job to buy any apps yourself.

    The iPod version of the App Store is still developing too. So yes - searches show, but there are bugs because it was only released 2 days ago?...

    "Just a rant about you..."

    Where do you get 95% from? Do you have proof to back this up?

    Also, what if none of the applications in the App Store were free.

    This is the damn truth. I'm sick of seeing D-Grade apps for over $2.99. The only apps that should cost money are ones made by legitimate Game/Software Developers.

    scroll through the "all applications" list and look for nothing but the word "free" it sure does take a while to get from one "free" to the next "free" what if nona of them were free you say? well then i wouldve never upgraded in the first place.

    Nothing is stopping you from going back to 1.1.4 and jailbreaking.
