Before you’re rich enough to start throwing away your money to medical foundations and third-world countries, consider buying a $1,000 iPhone application that does nothing.
An application called “I Am Rich,” makes you wonder whether developer Armin Heinrich is referring to you or himself — after he suckers enough naïve people into purchasing this useless piece of software. The app does nothing but display a red ruby; tapping a miniature i in the corner will load a secret mantra enabling you to “stay rich, healthy, and successful.”
It will indubitably make you question Apple’s criteria for approving applications before they appear in the App Store.
Update: It appears the app has been pulled from the App Store.
