To be fair, just glancing at the app makes me think it wouldn't get approved in the first place. Bummer that it did get approved and then is getting pulled, but as a developer, I never would have spent time on that app (or advised anyone else to do so) as I would assume it would run afoul of the guidelines to start with. Don't get me wrong - Apple does some bone headed things with the approval process sometimes but there are also a lot of developers who spend time working on projects that clearly are in the grey areas and then act like it came out of left field when the approval system goes against them.

Yes, but why not just give an explanation or suggest things to add/remove so that the app could be approved? It is stuff like this that makes me hate Apple passionately more and more...

What is very interesting is that Apple is a company that prides its creations on the "creative design" look and feel. (Ooo, That's Pretty!!) Then when something comes out that enhances the look and feel of their products, they are against it...why? Well, probably because it was not an idea or creation from Apple, after all, none of us out here can ever be as creative as the big paid designers working at Apple!

And Apple still wonders why people would ever want to jailbreak?!? I think they answer their own question EVERY TIME!!

Sucks!! Apple doesn't want to be upstaged by Apps that look great! I just bought it on principle!
