Why should someone decide which one what everyone should have even if some people would have preferred a different one?

Its more likely that the time delay is over apple staff having "private moments" while reviewing said "adult apps"

If I want the cucumber, I think I'm smart enough to avoid installing something I don't want. I also think that I'm mature enough to make my own decisions regarding what is acceptable on my device without someone having to censor the options I have.
