Apple Rejects App That Tracks Drone Attacks

Apple has deserted an app for iPhone that keeps follow of deaths caused by U.S. worker strikes due to its "objectionable" content. The firm pulled out Drones+ from its App Store, that sends content messages to your iPhone when the media reports casualties consequent from a worker set upon and even shows the locations of such strikes on a Google map.

Apple has deserted Drones+ 3 times this summer alone, citing App Store discipline that hinder "objectionable" content, according to the app's author Josh Begley.

While Begley, a connoisseur tyro at New York University, accepted Apple's position, headlines reports had sharp out the inconsistencies of Apple in wielding its "objectionable content" order in rejecting apps. The New York Times reported that the same unacceptable element found in Drones+ is scarcely same to element existing on the Apple-approved app from The Guardian, that enclosed an interactive chart of worker strikes.

Netizen reactions in the inform consternation about the unsuitable standards Apple practical in rejecting apps. "Who done Apple the world's probity police," asked a reader for CNET.

Another commented, "Why not simply reject any app that provides headlines on the drift that someone will read something that they find objectionable?"
