It seems like there are an endless number of iPhone applications these days. But with the recent discovery of the “Baby Shaker” application, we have to question how the apps are being regulated.
The application popped up recently from a company called Sikalosoft. For 99 cents, you could purchase the application, the object of which is to stop the crying of an infant by violently shaking the phone. If successful, two red x-marks appear over the child’s eyes.
We have to wonder, why would anyone find such a thing entertaining? And how did this kind of application ever receive approval in the first place?
Thankfully, the application has been removed from the Apple Store. But for some parents, the damage has already been done. It will be interesting to see how Apple responds to the backlash…
What do you think?
