Apple has so many apps within their app store that many have questioned the legitimate value of some of them. This time around, a new app was submitted to Apple for consideration and its objective was to track unmanned drone strikes as well as send out notifications every time one of these strikes resulted in a kill.
The app was called Drones+ and once again, this app has been shot down. In fact, this is the third time that Drones+ has not been approved for the App store. This time around, Apple’s reasoning for this rejection had to do with the fact that some Apple customers would find the content of this app “objectionable”. In addition to this, Apple also cited a compliance issue with Drones+.
When it comes to Apps, Apple has generally erred on the side of caution and this app may be one more example of this. Drone strikes have been a controversial subject and although the app does not show images of killed militants, it can be a divisive issue. Seeing as how this is the third strike for Drone+, the app developer Josh Begley will no longer be able to resubmit the app for consideration.
