Well it was a good short run for developer Igor Barinov and his WikiLeaks application but Apple has officially pulled it from the App Store just four short days after first approving it. I wouldn't expect to see it back anytime in the future.
The app gave instant access to the WikiLeaks web content as well as provided access to the site's Twitter account. WikiLeaks has at the center of political and media controversy lately for publishing secret information in the form of documents, memos or other confidential transmissions about the government. Recently other big companies like Amazon, PayPal, Mastercard, Visa and Bank of America have all tried to get their names away from anything associated with WikiLeaks and it appears as Apple might be trying to do the same thing.
Did you download the WikiLeaks app before it got pulled from the App Store? Do you think Apple should have pulled the app even though it doesn't appear to violate any of the terms of services set forth by Apple themselves? Tell us your thoughts about the issue below.
