    Now the developer can afford that spell checking program he so desperately needs.

    If you have an iphone, you’re already advertising “i’m rich” to any thief within 20 yards, so hey, why not make it extra clear if they steal the thing that your identity’s probably worth stealing also?

    Looks like a fake to me. When he shows the app in iTunes prior to syncing, all of the app icons have the standard reflection below them.

    Of course, this whole thing has ‘viral marketng’ written all over it, so even if it is real, I wouldn’t be surprised to learn it was made by the cell-phone popcorn people.

    I figured someone would post to the Internet what the app said!

    *hopes this is true*

    Clarifying my point: All of the app icons have the standard reflection below them EXCEPT the I Am Rich app.

    @404notfound1: Maybe it’s just me, but looking at 0:13, I can see a reflection, it’s very faint though, which isn’t a total surprise considering the icon is black. I do see a bit of the red from the jewel.

    I dunno if you can really “viral market” a $1000 program that does -nothing- (which is removed from the App Store now anyway). I’m thinking more along the lines of “viral make fun of”.
