Drone Strike App Gets Rejected Three Times By Apple
Apple confirmed Thursday that it has rejected a controversial app called Drones+ from its App Store. The app is designed to alert users whenever someone has been killed in a U.S. drone strike. The Drone+ app was developed by Josh Begley (New York) and has been turned down by Apple three times. He recently told Wired that he’s “back to the drawing board” on his idea, but he’s considering trying to launch the app on the Android Market.
"They said the app has excessively objectionable or crude content," Begley says. "Which I found somewhat curious, because it is literally just a republishing of news — just tracking when strikes happen."
