Apple Bans DUI Checkpoint Apps From iOS App Store
There has been quite a bit of controversy about the DUI checkpoint apps that have been available on the iPhone, with a Four US senators attempting to get them removed, and now it looks like Apple has now banned the apps from the iOS app store.
Apple has updated its App Store review guidelines and the latest version now features a section which says that they will not publish any apps that display DUI checkpoints unless they are from law enforcement agencies.
Apps which contain DUI checkpoints that are not published by law enforcement agencies, or encourage and enable drunk driving, will be rejected.
Apple has followed other companies like RIM, who recently banned all the DUI checkpoint apps from their App World.
