Apple Bans Dictionary Application Over Swear Words

Posted By Ben Goulding, 6 August, 2009 | permalink

Ninjawords, an iPhone dictionary application has been rejected by Apple as it included definitions for swear words.

Ninja Words

Apple refused to approve the app unless the creators removed the “objectionable” words. Matchstick Software, the developers of Ninjawords complied with Apple’s requirements and removed the swear words. It is now available to download from the iTunes store, but only to users over 17 as Apple still deems it still unsuitable for younger audiences. Huh?

It’s nice to see Apple finally taking a stance on potentially offensive applications, however, compared to some of the apps they have approved, this one wears a halo.
