Manomio's C64 emulator has been pulled from the iPhone App Store, after brainy users discovered a way into the computer's operating system, allowing them to create and run BASIC programs.

Apple can't monitor those, so the stylish super-company quickly vanished the App, moments before Manomio could submit a new, fixed build.

The developer, speaking to Pocket Gamer, said it was hard at work setting up a meeting with Apple so it could get to the core of the issue before someone pips it to the post.

Manomio's C64 emulator raced into the top 20 paid-for Apps list after just two days on sale, and even breached the top 10 in some territories.
