Since we reported last Wedneday (November 11) that Apple rejected an iPhone application by MAD magazine cartoonist Tom Richmond, which featured caricatures of members of the US Congress, it seems the company has done a U-turn and approved it.
Apple had claimed that the app “contains content that ridicules public figures” and is in violation of “the iPhone Developer Program License Agreement”. That is no longer the case and it appears that the online reaction to the news may have played a part in getting the decision overturned.
Ray Griggs, who produced and financed the app, called Bobble Reps, said: “I would like thank all of the websites, news stations, Twitter, Facebook, internet bloggers, and email sources that showed their support.”
