‘Excessively objectionable’ app tracking US drone strikes cut from Apple store

Apple has come under fire for its decision to pull an app that tracks US drone strikes from its App Store, after the controversial app was briefly accepted after 12 rejections.

The decision has sparked outrage and inspired accusations of censorship.

Data artist and developer Josh Begley created the app five years ago, which sent push notifications each time a US drone strike was reported by the media.

Apple rejected the app, then called Drones+, saying it was “excessively objectionable or crude content.” Begley continued to submit the app to the online store over the years, in an effort to see whether Apple’s rules had changed.
