It sounded too good to be true. The complete Tintin collection as an Apple iPad App for $4.99/Â£2.99.
And thatâ€™s exactly what it was.
How it got approved by Apple isnâ€™t known. Those who have bought the App now say that it is broken, its method was to let you download the pirated pages stored on an extrernal server, which seems to have come under a bit of a hammering. Scott Kurtz tweeted â€œIâ€™m sad the Tintin app was a scam (which I fell for) but itâ€™s also an good indicator of how well a REAL app like that would sell.â€
