Deceased iOS apps to come back from dead with iCloud

Two of the biggest issues with Apple's wildly successful App Store are the restrictions and rules they put in place for apps and their developers. These wouldn't be a big deal if all of the rules and restrictions weren't ever changed, but Apple seems to change them, well, an awful lot. This results in many great apps being pulled. 

Thankfully, something that Steve Jobs didn't tell us about iCloud on Monday was that it will let you download those purchased and pulled apps yet again. Developers who have received a beta of iOS 5 and iCloud have been able to re-download pulled apps that they had previously purchased. 

I don't foresee this actually coming with the full release of iCloud this summer, especially with all the press it's received already. Apple has to be aware that it is allowing users to do this. It just seems a little fishy to me. But hey, if this does come with the final release of iCloud, then I'll definitely be one pleased blogger.
