App Banned from App Store

An app called Phone Story has been banned from the app store for criticizing apple.

The game called phone story sees the life cycle of a smartphone from the metals being mined in Africa all the way to manufacturing.  The game criticizes the use of fuel and labour to make smart phones.

All of the games revenues were going to go towards groups that support labour rights.

One of the leaked screen shots shows that the objective is to catch workers who are trying to commit suicide

All in all it is pretty wild and dark stuff, shame I shall never get to play it.

For the full story check out Bits as it is where I got my information.
