As long as they pay Apple enough.
Today sees the launch of the Sun's iPad app which, for a small consideration, offers fanbois the chance to digest at leisure all of the paper's famous meaty goodness. The Sun seen on the iPad For the debut God Pad edition, we find the lovely Chloe offering her up-front analysis of the government's growth figures. Handily, …
"high debt levels lead to the 'crowding out' phenomenon where borrowing crushes private sector investments and shrinks the economy. Luckily I know the importance of growth in key areas"

I thought they banned applications from the iPad, not content; because one can surf to web sites with it, and surely they don't check every image on every web site on the whole Internet.

Jane and Modesty Blaise would be much too shocking for our comics pages as well.
There was some German(I think) paper that got censored by Apple some time ago. Apparently, it had bikini clad young women that might cause a young lad' s thoughts to turn to less pure matters instead of saving up for the latest iAccessory.
