iSinglePayer iPhone App Censored by Apple

From LambdaJive

Apple, Inc. has censored an iPhone application promoting health insurance reform in the United States.

iSinglePayer, an iPhone application that advocates for single-payer health care reform was rejected from the App Store by Apple because it is “politically charged.” The application displays charts and bullet points about single-payer health care systems, and it allows users to call members of congress. iSinglePayer even calculates your local congressperson using GPS, and displays the amount of money donated to each congressperson from the health sector.

The application was submitted on August 21 and rejected on September 26, more than five weeks after it was submitted. Most applications take 10-14 days to approve. The rejection was made over the phone by a representative from Apple. The representative explained that the application was “politically charged” and was rejected for this reason.

    I am really enjoying the theme/design of your site. Do you ever run into any
    browser compatibility issues? A small number of my blog audience
    have complained about my site not working correctly in Explorer but looks great
    in Firefox. Do you have any tips to help fix this issue?
