In a story that is sure to drive fans of search engine optimisation up the wall, Apple has banned WikiLeaks from the iPhone App Store.
Yes, it seems that an application designed to offer iOS users the complete package of information released in the latest WikiLeak payload has now been blocked by the company from App Store.
The official word from Apple is that the App violated a rule which decrees that "Apps must comply with all local laws and may not put an individual or group in harm's way."
It's unclear whether in this case Apple believes the leaked info puts people in harm's way or violates laws. It's not likely Apple will open up about this, either. The company is very tight-lipped on these sorts of matters and it doesn't seem as if there's much a developer could do with this sort of App to bring it into compliance.
Fortunately for those looking to access the WikiLeaks data, there's a dedicated group of iPhone hack developers who will no doubt be more than willing to offer an unapproved WikiLeaks package for users of 'jailbroken' devices.
