This is even worse than it sounds: an app for iPhone called Peekaboo Tranny [googlecache (may be NSFW)] Unless you’re feeling an acute need to bolster your misanthropic impulses for the day, do NOT go looking for their twitter account.
Solarbird notes, in relation to Apple not being an open development platform (all content, including apps, must be Apple-approved):
One of the risks of exercising this kind of control is that if you do it, you’re effectively endorsing all the applications put online on that store. You’re exercising editorial control, and you’re making judgement calls.
this is pretty clearly in violation of section 14 of the App Store guidelines if you want a specific section to cite:
14. Personal attacks
14.1 Any app that is defamatory, offensive, mean-spirited, or likely to place the targeted individual or group in harms way will be rejected
14.2 Professional political satirists and humorists are exempt from the ban on offensive or mean-spirited commentary
