Look what happened!!!!!!

Apple did something about removing inappropriate apps from their app store!!!!!
On any given day 100 apps are removed. Starting Feb. 17  Apple removed 5000+ bad apps.
Here is the graph that shows it:

Here are some great quotes:

"APPLE has removed more than 5,000 applications with “overtly sexual” content from its online App Store following complaints from customers."

Philip W. Schiller, head of worldwide product marketing at Apple, explained the company’s purge saying: “It came to the point where we were getting customer complaints from women who found the content getting too degrading and objectionable, as well as parents who were upset with what their kids were able to see.”

A removal notice from Apple said: “We have recently received numerous complaints from our customers about this type of content and have changed our guidelines appropriately. We have decided to remove any overtly sexual content from the App Store, which includes your application.”

I am thankful that Apple did something. We can make a difference.  
This is great news, great news!

You did it!!! They were probably like, dude this Katie chick won't stop calling us. Let's make a graph or something. haha jk, I'm happy for you!


Indeed we can! That is inspirational to me! I usually don't DO the right thing in situations like that--which is to DO nothing. Thanks Katie! I will be more inclined to 'make a difference' when the next item comes along.
