As our concerns over the initial impressions that iPhone 5's black coating has a tendency to develop scratches quite quickly have went on to be reinforced by users after just days, we do wonder how much of a conscious decision to ship such an easily-marrable phone was by Apple. Certainly, Phill Schiller, Apple's Senior Vice President of Worldwide Marketing and a recognizable figure from recent keynotes, has taken inspiration from Steve Jobs to answer customer emails as he speaks out on the issue.
Well folks, we may have another antennagate-esque situation on our hands, ironically so from a company that values intricate product design to the degree that Apple does. Stemming from observations in an early review of iPhone 5 comes worry over just how durable Cupertino’s latest-and-greatest is. This is shaping up to be story that does not look like it will have a very pretty ending.
Last week our friends at App Cubby released a free, sponsored version of Gas Cubby called Gas Cubby by FRAM [App Store, Free]. As you may recall from our review, Gas Cubby is a fuel economy, service, and vehicle expense tracking application and it's very useful. I use it regularly, so I was happy to see a free version become available so everyone can try it.
The free version includes all of the same great features as the paid version, with the inclusion of ads and the exclusion of sync. Aside from those two differences, it's exactly the same. If you do end up enjoying the sponsored version, the paid version of Gass Cubby [App Store, $6.99] is totally worth it.
