    "Apple dissapproved the app. They state it redicules president Obama. Do you think this assesment is accurate ?"

    I guess we have to give him some more time to start making fun of him.. although didn't take long for Bush..

    I don't see a single thing wrong with the App.. and would be good for Obama Fanboys around the world..

    Rejection from Apple should have read:

    No, you can't.

    I'm prepping an updated version with a smaller head. Perhaps that's the issue?

    Don't bother with that, srsly.

    Just add a button that makes him fart. Then you'll be golden.

    i think the thing is that apple thinks that since it's repeating all phrases and stuff it's making fun of obama. i know u did not mean it like that; but that's how apple sees it i guess. and yeah; try a smaller head

    Does it matter? You could get the whole forum to agree with you and it won't change the fact that Apple rejected it.

    Apple initially rejected "Pull My Finger", so we didn't launch Rudetonz.

    Then they approve iFart and it makes huge sums of $$$.

    I don't get their rejection of this one.

    I don't think apple wants to approve any app that portrays a public figure. For anyone that likes someone there will always be someone else who dislikes that same person. And apple doesn't wanna play the middle man and appear totals sides when some apps are approved and some aren't, so they'll just block any app that portrays a public figure.
