Apple removes almost 900 apps from the App store

All from the same Developer

In what has to be the biggest "gee Mom see I ain't doing nothing wrong" move I have ever witnessed Apple revoked the publishing license of Perfect Acumen.

 

If you do not know the name you are sure to know the name of some of their better apps. Titles such as Top Sexy Ladies and Skin Care Updates these have filled the App store up with crap for a long time yet now Apple decides to take action.

 

Apple's stated reason is very clear for a change. It says that Perfect Acumen has had complaints filed against it for stealing other People's IP. Mostly this is in the form of reposting pictures for profit without getting the required rights.

 

Yet I have to wonder why now; is this the whitewash to try and cover up the issue with Google? I have to say that while I applaud the removal of some 900 useless apps from the clutter it will not be enough to close the books on the FTC and FCC investigations.
