Quick update about the transphobic app on the Apple Store

With respectable turnaround time, the app started vanishing off the store and by now appears to be well and thoroughly gone. I’m rather stunned as well that the issue even surfaced on the site for GLAAD, right here, and that they linked back to Dara as well.

I’m with Dara: if Apple’s going to have a walled garden approach to the App store, and a policy specifically against defamatory apps, they better be on top of what they let into the garden. But I have to say they responded to this pretty quickly, and I have to give them marks for that. Looks like I keep the iPhone a while longer!

Thanks to all of you who took the time to respond to this issue. You get the Aubrey Hero icon! Go you.
