Remember the winter of 2008, when it seemed like every other new App Store release was some kind of fart simulator? Razix does: in fact, the "gas-passing glut" inspired them to develop a slightly classier gag app.
The result was iCracked, a fun stress-reliever that lets you import a picture of whoever's getting up your nose at the moment, then "smash" the bejeezus out of it with assorted sound effects and broken-glass visuals. Confident they had a (pardon the pun) smash hit on their hands, Razix submitted the app to iTunes…
…and watched as it languished in "review/rejection hell" for almost 7 months! Turns out Apple doesn't like any app that simulates a hardware failure, and iSmash's cracked-screen sim put it into that category. Finally, Razix's coders added a "picture frame" to enclose the broken glass — and the App Store said "Okay, so they're smashing a portrait, not an iPhone. Yeah, that works." (A decision, by the way, almost as random/meaningless as the shoes-in-the-frame that kept Snow Writer from being approved…)
