reaping what it sowed

The real story here isn't whether Apple is the arbiter of poor taste but whether the company adds any value whatsoever by keeping exclusive control over the distribution of apps. Either Apple thoroughly vetted this app and decided it was appropriate... or the 'quality control' argument is bunk and it's just publishing anything to collect its hefty cut of revenue from the creations of other developers. Methinks it's the latter.
