If you've been following the drama at the App Store you're aware that Apple has removed three applications to date:
- NetShare – the 3G tethering application from NullRiver
- Box Office/Now Playing – a super-useful movie application I used last night
- I Am Rich – the US$1,000 application that 8 people purchased
Now a fourth application can be added to the list: TheMacBox's PhoneSabre. According to Macenstein George Lucas' THQ Wireless who owns the rights for Star Wars apps on mobile devices has asked that PhoneSaber be removed from the iTunes App Store.
The good news is, apparently THQ aren’t being jerks about it, and want to work with MacBox to bring about an official version of the app to the iTunes store. “They want to do some sort of official, Star Wars branded version of PhoneSaber, and will be working with us on that one,” reads a post on TheMacBox’s blog. “I don’t know any information beyond that, whether they plan to charge for it [we’re betting “yes”], advertise with it or what, but we’ll keep you updated on as much as we’re allowed to tell you.”
