(Update for Feb 11, 2009: Below is the original description of the application. I’ll update the description for the new version I submitted on Feb 11, 2 009 if it gets approved.)
I Am Poor - This is the poor man’s version of the $999.99 “I Am Rich” application. The icon on your iPhone or iPod Touch always reminds you (and others when you show it to them) that you were able to afford this.
It’s a work of art with no hidden function at all. It displays my artistic rendition of the poor college students standard meal – ramen, mac & cheese, and tuna fish.
There is no (i) or secret mantra on the main page because we couldn’t afford it.
I AM POOR REJECTED BY APPLE
I Am Poor was submitted to AppStore on August 6, 2008. Apple rejected it because it didn’t contain any user-accessible functionality. The flash light applications on AppStore turn your screen white, but they get approved. Yet, I’d argue it does contain user-accessible functionality. You launch the application and the application responds by displaying some art. When users see the art their emotions are ignited.
