Who says Apple, denies freedom. Who says Apple, refuses to use his brains. I do not consider this Apple's philosophy in the first place. It is simply a matter of maximising Apple's profit and shareholder value. I love my iPhone, but I dislike Apple's so-called political correctness. So, in the end we all behave like sheep and follow the grand priest.

Apple's store; Apple's rules. Apple has a right to decide what's available in that store. Apart from parental controls, there's the integrity of the Apple brand. Their right to decide what's associated with that trumps the other guy's right to sell a legal product when he decides to use their facility to do his sales. If he changed the product after he and Apple reached an agreement, then he pulled a bait and switch that is a violation of his agreement with Apple. Note that Apple is not telling him do not sell. Apple is just telling him "not here."

You have agreed to the terms of service. If you want your money back you either ask politely or you contest the TOS, which would involve paying lawyer's fees. :(

Man, then what the hell is the point of having parental control if you're not going to use it?

I paid for this app, and know apple remotely deleted it. This is just insane, I understand why they would remove it from their servers so nobody else would buy it, but if its already paid for they can't just take it away without at least refunding the money. Is anyone here a lawyer, because this has to be breaking a law, they can't just take merchandise back without refunding the money???

I WANT A REFUND. Since Apple approved the app, it was released by them and then THEY chose to delete the app, shouldn't Apple refund the money? Everything was done on their part so they should be at fault and refund anyone who purchased the App

Ok, they removed the app from the Store, BUT will this be the first test of Apple's ability to remotely delete programs that already out in the open? Lets stay tuned for this one.....

Why can you download a Movie from the iTunes store that has nudity and not a Application for the iPhone? I dont see a difference. I agree that Apple should not be allowed to senor content. A child should not have a cell phone. In order to have a Apple account you should have to input all of you information when you make it including Birth date. The birth date would not ever be able to be changed and should dictate what you can and can not download.
