Apple to allow App Store rentals in iTunes?

The Tech Erra points to a snippet of code discovered in iTunes 10.5 beta 9 indicating that Apple may begin allowing App Store app rentals.

"510.036" = "Apps are automatically removed from your iTunes library at the end of the rental period.";

This either suggests iOS users could finally have the ability to play around with an app before deciding to purchase, or someone just got sloppy with some strings.

App Giveaway: Priorities for iPhone and iPad

Priorities for iPhone and iPad is a productivity app meant to help you with to-dos and lists. It supports custom, color-coded pages for optimum organization. Priorities is now a universal app and data can be synced between all your devices.

I have a mild addiction to to-do apps, which is rather strange considering that I continue to struggle with completing many of my tasks, but that's beside the point. Of my plethora of to-do apps, Priorities is now one of my favorites. Too often, I run into to-do apps that are packed with so many features, that I practically need to have a separate to-do list for adding items to my to-do list because of how long it takes to add an item. Not with Priorities! Priorities comes with the features I need and adding a new item with a due date and reminder only takes up seconds of my time. Not to mention, the UI is beautiful.
