Item  5.  Other  events.

     Effective  August 9, 2002 (the "EFFECTIVE DATE"), Appiant Technologies Inc.
("Appiant")  and  InPhonic,  Inc.  ("InPhonic")  concluded  execution of various
agreements  providing  for  the  sale  and  lease back of equipment, purchase of
additional  license  rights,  minimum  subscriber  payments, and the issuance of
additional  warrants  to purchase Appiant common stock.  InPhonic is the primary
reseller  of  Appiant's  inUnison(SM)  unified  communication  system.


     In  the  first  part of the agreements, InPhonic agreed to purchase certain
Appiant  assets,  including  the  Company's  data processing center, in an Asset
Purchase Agreement and to lease them back to Appiant through and Equipment Lease
Agreement.  Both  agreements  were  originally  executed  July 12, 2002, and the
Equipment  Lease  Agreement was amended August 9, 2002. The three-year Equipment
Lease  Agreement provides for sub-market rate payments for the first six months.
Lease payments subsequently increase to market rate for the following 30 months.
This transaction represents a $600,000 net cash benefit to Appiant over the next
two  fiscal  quarters.

     In  the  second part of the agreements, Appiant and InPhonic entered into a
First  Amendment  to  Master  Services  Agreement  ("First  Amendment") revising
certain  terms  of the parties' March 22, 2001 Master Services Agreement. In the
First Amendment, InPhonic purchased a broader license for Appiant's inUnison(SM)
product,  resulting  in  a  $900,000  cash  benefit  to  Appiant.

     In  the  third  and  final part of the agreements, the First Amendment also
provided  that  InPhonic would make minimum monthly payments to Appiant based on
an  assumed  minimum  of  10,000  paying  subscribers.  This  provides  Appiant
consistent  and  predicable  revenue  as  it  continues  to  build  sales  of
inUnison(SM). The total cash benefit of this transaction will be determined from
the  number  of  actual  subscribers  in  any  given  period.

     As  additional  consideration  for  these  agreements,  the Company granted
InPhonic  additional  warrants  to purchase a number of common shares of Appiant
stock  equal to 19.99% of all outstanding shares. The additional warrants issued
August  9,  2002 and are exercisable at $0.01 per share. For twelve months after
August  9,  2002,  the  number  of  warrants  issued  to  InPhonic  may increase
proportional  to  any increase in the total number of outstanding common shares,
such  that  InPhonic  will continue to maintain rights to purchase 19.99% of all
outstanding  shares  during  that  period.


     Pursuant  to  the  requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the
registrant  has  duly  caused  this  report  to  be  signed on its behalf by the
undersigned  hereunto  duly  authorized.
