It took far too long for reasons I’ll never know, but Apple has finally approved the Inquisitor app for the iPhone. Late last year, I released my first iPhone app, Ski Lodge, which brought a unique experience to skiers and snowboarders with the iPhone’s combination of GPS, 3G, and rich user experience.
