iOS fans had the brief opportunity to score a sweet app this morning before Apple quickly pulled it away. iDOS, a DOS based emulator, was briefly released and then yanked from the Apple Store, but not before quite a few people got their hands on it and were using it do run things like Windows 3.0 and some old school Space Quest.

While I'm sure many of you are pretty gleeful at the thought of Steve Jobs tripping out about Windows running on an iPhone, there is precedent for the app being pulled due to it being able to interpret and run executable code. If you weren't one of the lucky few to get your hands on the app, you'll have to turn to either a jailbreak or a developer account to get it going via the sourcecode here.
