Drone strikes aren’t permitted within the walled garden.

Now I love RainParrot - is DroneStrike as accurate in predicting the chance of a heavy deluge in the next 15 minutes?

This is one of those apps that other contributors to Reddit would consider a blow to the open web by putting blatently hypertext oriented content into a DRM’d application.

But since it’s Apple, its bad.

Seriously, just make a web app and be done with it. Not that hard. They knew Apple wasn’t going to approve this – even though 99% of the people at the company agree with the content, they aren’t willing to lose sales when the published tries to live off Apple’s name to piss off half the country. It just isn’t a win scenario for Apple when they know the publisher has a better alternative.
