Eucalyptus

Eucalyptus

App Maker: James Montgomerie
Reason: Inappropriate sexual content

In one of the more controversial rejections by Apple, Eucalyptus, which allows people to read classic books on their iPhones, was rejected in May 2009, because users are able to download a copy of the Kama Sutra, an ancient Sanskrit text on sexuality. Apple said the Kama Sutra contained "inappropriate sexual content" and initially proposed that Eucalyptus remove the classic text. Apple reversed course several days later allowing the app without censorship. The incident sparked criticism that Apple's approval process is arbitrary and influenced by public pressure.
