Keep it, or at the very worst merge it with the app store article. This is an ongoing issue, and future developments may cause the article to be merged with criticisms of apple, because of apple's deletion of the app which violated no rules of the app store, and for not paying Heinrick. If you don't keep the article, at least merge it somewhere, because this IS something a lot of websites have reported on, making it high-profile news amongst nerds and developers like myself, and since the app is now a rarity, its future worth (granted its authenticity can be proven via embedded assembly metadata or whatnot) may be enough as so to keep this article around.
Like I said, this is an ongoing issue currently, and deleting it before a major development could be unnecessary work for everyone.
In short: I vote to keep it, or at least compromise and merge it with an appropriate article.
Is I Am Rich still an iPhone + iPod touch application? I thought that it was deleted, and searches in the App Store, even of the user himself, show no results of the I Am Rich or I Am Richer App. 18.104.22.168 (talk) 03:10, 11 April 2009 (UTC)
As the article says, I Am Rich was removed from the App Store soon after launch, while I Am Richer is an Android application, not iPhone. --Jonathan Drain (talk) 15:45, 12 April 2009 (UTC)
A simmilar thing is http://www.sms-vaska.se/ where you can send 200 SEK (slightly less than 30 USD) just to show you can afford it. It was developed after several bars did no longer allow you to buy a bottle of champagne and then pour it out. It has been covered in national media. // Liftarn (talk)
I agree that sms-vaska is another example of a Veblen good, but I don't see it's connection to this application. The former is an SMS-based service for dispensing of monies, whereas the latter is a controversial iPhone app. — pd_THOR| =/\= | 04:04, 26 November 2010 (UTC)
There is no direct connection apart from the intended use and that both are done using a mobile phone. // Liftarn (talk)
I have changed some of the language in this article to make it more neutral, As there seemed to be a certian bias towards Apple, eg..
"--unlike apple--" DimVinn (talk) 17:13, 28 January 2011 (UTC)
You're not the first to make that edit, and I never understood it before and reverted it without any dissension. I still don't understand how it's biased, but since others apparently do, I'll acquiesce to the apparent consensus. — Fourthords | =/\= | 17:57, 28 January 2011 (UTC)
