South Park App "Dead in the Water"
blockquote>We first announced our iPhone App back in October, after we submitted the Application to Apple for approval. After a couple of attempts to get the application approved, we are sad to say that our app has been rejected. According to Apple, the content was "potentially offensive." But Apple did admit that the standards would evolve, citing that when iTunes first launched it didn't sell any music with explicit lyrics. At this point, we are sad to say, the app is dead in the water. Sorry, South Park fans.
Who is Apple to say what is offensive and what isn't? They let fart apps in the App Store in groves. Who is to say those do not offend anyone? How about Wobble? An app that gives you the ability to make certain female body parts jiggle around your screen. That doesn't offend anyone? That is a choice the consumer should be making, not Apple. Ok, I've made my point.
There is one simple solution to something that may offend someone. If you are offended, don't buy it!
