As Apple continues to reject applications for its iPhone App Store without any apparent consistency, the developer of a mobile podcasting application has taken matters into his own hands by turning to a little known workaround.

After having squelched more controversial applications, including the 'Murderdrome' comic book and a fart joke application dubbed 'Pull My Finger,' Apple turned around and banned Alex Sokirynsky's 'Podcaster' application from the iPhone App Store.

Now, instead of just waiting and hoping that Apple will change its mind, developer Alex Sokirynsky is using a feature of the iPhone/iPod Touch called 'Ad Hoc App Distribution' to distribute his 'Podcaster' application himself.
