There's some topics and apps that you will never get onto the App Store. This is one of them:
Im pretty sure everyone agrees that the drone strikes going on in
Pakistan, Yemen and Somalia are horrific. We all hear about the number of civillian deaths from drone stikes, wether those numbers are accurate or not. It's plastered over the nightly TV news, even here in Australia.
Here's some quotes from the Wired article that got my attention:
I find that statement by the developer disturbing. Why would you make an application to advertise civillian deaths by autonomous and remotely controlled drones, "in about real time"? Really disturbing or negligently insensitive.
It's apps like this we dont need. In addition to that, whilst on the subject of app store rejections, there's this in the App Store Review Guidelines:
And what happened here? Hacker News, Wired, other re-blogging tech press and of course me. It doesn't help the case move along.
and to that…
I hope he decides to pick a better app idea that doesn't rely on civilian deaths in
Pakistan, Yemen, Somalia or anywhere.
