Now iPhone developers are stealing Windows Phone 7 apps


Taking their cue from Steve Jobs, who called 2011 the year of the copier and promptly stole all the best ideas from Android and Windows Phone 7, this iPhone developer basically stole the design from the Diving calculator and log book wholesale from German developer Sven Knoch.

Sven’s app, Diving Log, which retails for $2.99, was released in December 2010, while Massimiliano Gargani’s Divers Book, which is free, was released only a few weeks ago.

Sven is still to have words with the copyist, but would appreciate if buyers who want a clean metro designed dive log turn to his app, in Marketplace here, rather than a bad knock-off in the app store.
