Apple Bans South Park From iPhone
Apple does not approve of your sense of humor. That is unless you're downloading one of the 80+ iPhone apps related to farting, belching or puking. Next time you're sitting down to watch the cable television show South Park, make sure you have permission from Papa Jobs. The South Park crew was working on an iPhone/iPod Touch app for the AppStore but has now been forced to abandon its work on the project.
Rejected twice from the AppStore for being potentially offensive, the South Park application was already receiving glowing reviews last fall. For fans of the show, the app would have offered a multitude of clips, news, and wallpapers. There was even a feature to associate popular South Park characters to people in your contacts list.
According to the South Park crew, Apple acknowledged that although they would not accept the app now, AppStore standards could change in the future. When iTunes first started selling music the service did not allow any songs with explicit lyrics into the catalog.
The doomed South Park app was announced in October last year. The only thing more unlikely than Apple freeing this app is its immediate release on Cydia for jailbroken phones.
