New iShoot update rejected from Appstore

Looks like the new update was rejected because of the backgrounds with monuments in them.

Ethan got in contact with them and was told that it was found to be OFFENSIVE

um... Those monument backgrounds have been there for eight months! WTF Apple!?

Anyway, The new update will be fast tracked once they are removed since Ethan has been waiting so long to hear anything about the update (it was sent in before WWDC)

It's instances such as these when I wonder if Apple just accidentally stumbled onto success with the iTunes store.

Sorry to hear that... That is really really lame. Even though I own an iDevice, I f*cking hate Apple with all my heart. The iPod touch is the first and only hardware I plan on ever purchasing. It's because of crap like this that I hate myself for owning one. How could they reject it? It makes no sense what-so-ever.

Apple really sucks sometimes. They make great products but some of their decisions just confuse me.

Wow. This is just like Apple to do. Sometimes I wonder who actually reviews all these games.

Of all the things people could be offended by in these games I am surprised to hear that monuments are the new target. My philosophy is that people choose to be offended. Ridiculous.

Haha! That's why I play Pocket Tanks Deluxe! Ten times better than this.

and lastly we have the abu sayaf and MILF, two terrorist factions in the Philippines, and ivé yet to see any fruits of labor from the government concerning these terrorist threats.

This isn't an iShoot vs. Pocket Tanks Thread.

This thread is about Apple leaving Devs in the dark as they take weeks to approve an update then rejecting it, citing it as "offensive". And only by a dev being persistent does he learn that the "offensive" material is artwork that has been in the game for the 8 months that it has been out.
