Political apps in the news

The Times covers the continuing story of Apple’s handling of political apps.

Earlier this week, it rejected the iPhone app of a Republican opponent to Representative Henry A. Waxman of California, a Democrat, saying it was a personal attack on Mr. Waxman. But on Tuesday, Apple reversed itself and approved the app.

It is just the latest in a string of incidents in which Apple has changed its decision on whether to approve an app that arguably made fun of or criticized public figures.
