We’re not sure how software developer Fast Intelligence managed to sneak iDOS past the app approval team at Apple, but the influx of blog coverage ensured the app’s presence in the App Store was short lived. iDOS, as the name might suggest, is an emulator that supports DOS (and Windows 3.0) installations on iOS devices. You read that right — with iDOS, you can run DOS and Windows 3.0 on the iPhone, iPad and iPod touch. The $0.99 was destined for a brief life in the App Store, so hopefully giddy geeks were able to  jump on it during their brief window of opportunity. If not, don’t fret… there’s always a chance it will reappear in in the Cydia Store.
