iPhone application store – love/hate relationship

I love the iPhone application store.  Third party applications are real enablers on the iPhone and increase the value of the product in incredible ways.

I hate the iPhone application store.  I hate the fact that one of my dream programs (iTether) was released as NetShare on the Application store, then removed, the added, then removed again.  During this whole time, I didn’t get a copy so no tethering for me.  I hate how buggy the update process is.  iTunes tells me I only have 1 program that needs to be updated, but when I click the update button 27 applications download!?  WTF Apple, let’s get change management under control please.  I also hate how buggy updating applications via the iPhone can be and I’m not the only one reporting problems (see this week’s TWIT podcast).
