With Hands Tied Behind My Back

Apple rejected version 2 of my friend Karan’s iPhone app, Qǐngwèn:

I’m sorry, did I mention it’s a dictionary? Dictionaries have words, all sorts of words, including, yes, swear words like “fuck” and also words like “penis”, which of course is such a lewd word that I should be smited (well, technically, smitten) for having included it in Qingwen? And all of this somehow falls under their so-called “reasonable judgment”.

Ridiculous. In case Apple hasn’t noticed, developers — the most important component of the App Store — don’t like this nonsense.
