    Top 10 Banned iPhone Applications around the Globe

    Apple (AAPL) has become the envy of the wireless industry by creating a sprawling bazaar of software programs that can be loaded onto its iPhone. Apple has reportedly revamped its apps approval policy in a bid to make Apple marketplace safer and more productive. In light of these new changes, we’ve taken a look at the most outrageous App Store rejects from years past. Whether too sexy, too profane, too offensive, or too partisan, these apps just couldn’t make the cut.

    Check out these banned apps below, and vote on which ones you think should (and shouldn’t) have been allowed.

    The Dope Wars

    App Maker: Catamount Software

    Reason: Objectionable content

    This gaming app is a remake of the 1980s game DrugWars (for DOS and Ti calculators). ”Dope Wars,” according to its creators, allows users to play a drug dealer who has to make as much money as possible in 30 days by peddling narcotics. It was too explicit for the App Store, so the creators tweaked the premise and released a G-rated version called ”Candy Wars”

    Baby Shaker

    App Maker: Sikalosoft
    Reason for Rejection: “Deeply offensive”
