Functionality appearing below the mythical "fold"- what to do?

Being an Interaction Designer in the iPhone applications world

Hi all,

I'd like to know if any of you have some experience with iPhone
interaction design. To me, it looks like iPhone applications are
sometimes dominated by devs that are able to create their apps
without any help. Obviously, I am referring to what it looks like an
early stage of the iPhone application design. Where early means
functionalities and extra features but not studying, testing and
finding the best interface solutions (with the necessary exceptions
