Apple Rejects Tweetie Update Due to Bad Word

Posted by · 4496 views
In what seems like an endless string of terrible decisions in the App Store approval process; Apple has declined the Tweetie 1.3 update. Apple refused the update because an offensive word was found in the Trends section of the app.

Tweetie’s Trends feature scans the social network to find the most popular keywords that people are talking about. The offensive word was not put there by developers it was shown because thats what people on Twitter are talking about.

Rejecting this update has been likened to banning Safari because it can access objectionable content. Ridiculous.

The situation seems to be worsening each day. Just yesterday saw a developer write an open letter to Steve Jobs because his application to help find missing children had been waiting nearly a month with no approval from the company.

Perhaps more developers should take a look at what Cydia has to offer.

welcome to the corporate shit-list apple. boy the iphone was fun while it lasted. apps used to be fun to search through..even found some gems every couple of days. now it's a repository for white washed, family friendly shit games and bad movie tie-in apps. good news, though, for Saurik and his business.....or the many other touch fones coming into the market. see what a swollen head will get you, apple, go right ahead.
