Apple Pulls Shaken Baby iPhone App

Tech giant Apple is as family friendly as they come — from its in-store kiddie computer areas that occupy tots while parents are in line making purchases to numerous iPhone apps geared toward the younger set. So I was stunned (and sickened) to learn that though the company does not allow curse words to be used in its applications, an app that encouraged baby shaking was somehow approved. Until recently, users could purchase the game for 99 cents and shake their iPhones to stop babies from crying while a timer kept track of how fast they could accomplish the task. The application has since been pulled. What's your opinion on the issue?

After all the work that has been done to let people know that shaking a baby even a little could kill them, that is just not okay. What if somebody as a joke did it to a real baby? Whoever approved sure got fired!!

That's disgusting. I'm glad they pulled it. I don't want to know what kind of person actually downloaded that app.

Why would Apple even approve that kind of App? It should have never been available to use. Disgusting.

Ok that is just disgusting. I am glad that they pulled the app but you have to wonder how many people actually downloaded this thing. Its a small plus that this wasn't a more "graphic" app.
