Apple has a fairly infamous track record when it comes to the language it allows in its App Store. Words like “boobs” and “booty” are out. Now “Android” is apparently the latest in a long line of deadly words. According to one developer, Apple has requested that the name of Google’s mobile operating system be removed for an app description.
The original preview for Tim Novikof”s Flash of Genius SAT flashcard app mentioned that it had been a “finalist in Google’s Android Developer’s [sic] Challenge.”
So, what’s the problem here? Does Apple think that people might be confused by the mere mention of Android? Nope, Apple’s request simply stated that “providing future platform compatibility plans or other general platform references are not relevant in the context of the iPhone App Store.”
