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  (the  "Agreements").


InPhonic is the primary reseller of Appiant's inUnison(SM) unified communication
system.  The  general  material  terms  of  these  Agreements  were set forth in
Appiant's  Form  8-K  filed  on  August  27,  2002.(1)

As additional consideration for the First Amendment, Appiant granted InPhonic
warrants to purchase a number of common shares of Appiant stock equal to 19.99%
of all outstanding shares for a twelve-month period beginning August 9, 2002
("Subsequent Warrants"). The First Amendment also provides that warrants may be
issued in the future ("Future Warrants"), in order for InPhonic to maintain its
rights to purchase 19.9% of all outstanding shares during that twelve-month

Appiant and InPhonic have executed an agreement revising these terms to comply
with Marketplace Rule 4350(i)(1)(D)(ii) such that InPhonic will be subject to
reduced payments to Appiant for use of its products and services(2) and the
warrants and anti-dilution provisions are cancelled.  Appiant agreed to issue
warrants to purchase 800,000 shares of common Stock at a exercise price of $0.25
per share for revised financing considerations from InPhonic.


     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.

                                            Appiant  Technologies,  Inc.

1 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. These were each 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. In
the second part of the Agreements, the parties executed an amendment to their
March 22, 2001 Master Services Agreement (the "First Amendment"), whereby
InPhonic purchased a broader license for Appiant's inUnison(SM) product,
resulting in a $900,000 cash benefit to Appiant
