WikiLeaks Software: Removed From The Apple App Store

There have been a lot of new apps making their way onto the iTunes app store recently, one of which was the WikiLeaks App. For those of you that don’t know what WikiLeaks are, they are illegally leaked classified bits of information that is being published on the Internet. Often they are top secret memos or confidential government documents.

The app was released onto the store 4 days ago for £1.19 or $1.99. Once you had the app, you had access to a whole library of classified information. When the app was installed you would then have full access to the WikiLeaks website, you would have a continuous news feed even if the WikiLeaks server was encountering any problems and you would have access to old and new WikiLeaks documents.

According to Sam Oliver from AppleInsider.com, the originally approved app has now been removed. Apple hasn’t given an official reason as to why it has been taken down. The suspicion is that Apple has joined a consortium in the U.S. that are trying to stand in WikiLeaks path. You can read more about it over at AppleInsider. You can also view the previous app details from here. You can also view some of the WikiLeaks details on YouTube by clicking here.

What do you think about WikiLeaks app being removed? Do you think that the data they publish should be available anyway? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below.
