Apple rejects update to CastCatcher iPhone app

Steve Jobs does not approve


More proof
that Apple is exerting an autocratic control over its iPhone applications has come as Steve Jobs vetoed the update to CastCatcher.

The streaming radio application has proved really popular, but officially Apple thinks that the  update uses far too much bandwidth. This has left CastCatcher software writers scratching their heads because the three versions of software have had no problems. 

However, there might be a bit of a conflict of interest here for Apple.  There are two other iPhone applications available from the Apple App store.  One called Last.fm uses the same amount of bandwidth as CastCatcher.  The difference might be that Last.fm is  developed by a CBS subsidiary and CNET corporate sibling, Last.fm.

There are also dark rumors that Apple is planning an iPhone version of the streaming radio channels offered on iTunes, in which case Steve Jobs is showing that he intends to kill off anything that rivals Apple products on the App store.
