Apple Takes Down WikiLeaks App

Yesterday I wrote about a WikiLeaks app on the Apple App Store and today it is gone. The WikiLeaks app that was on the Apple App Store for $1.99 was selling information that is available for free. Apple spokeswoman Trudy Muller said that Apple removed the app “because it violated our developer guidelines.” she added: “Apps must comply with all local laws and may not put an individual or group in harm’s way.” [New York Times]
