Apple's Puritanical Review System Kills South Park iPhone App

It's a good thing Apple is around to protect us all from offensive content. Otherwise, we might be exposed to the sort of filth that's available on basic cable. Horrors!

The creators of South Park put together a slick-looking app for the iPhone, allowing free streaming of clips as well as other fun stuff, like wallpapers and news. It looked to be a great little piece of mobile entertainment. Alas.

We first announced our iPhone App back in October, after we submitted the Application to Apple for approval. After a couple of attempts to get the application approved, we are sad to say that our app has been rejected. According to Apple, the content was "potentially offensive." But Apple did admit that the standards would evolve, citing that when iTunes first launched it didn't sell any music with explicit lyrics. At this point, we are sad to say, the app is dead in the water. Sorry, South Park fans.

Hey Apple: we're big kids. You don't need to protect us from South Park. [Boing Boing]
