Apple rejects drone strike app as ‘objectionable and crude’

Apple’s submission process made a strike of its own as it rejected the app Drone+ for the third time.

On two previous occasions they rejected for functionality reasons and then suggested it was ‘not useful’. The app notifies users when a drone strike takes place overseas using a public database provided by the UK’s Bureau of Investigative Journalism. Strikes are also plotted on a map with details of each strike including location and numbers killed in areas such as Afghanistan, Yemen and Somalia.

The creator, NYU student Josh Begley has admitted he is at a loss to explain the real reason behind the rejection of an app that simply aggregates freely available news in this report from Wired.com.
