Baby shaker app for iPhone stirs up controversy
You'll find plenty of fun loving software available for the iPhone through its app store. But a surprising App managed to find its way past all those tightly scrutinizing eyes for approval from Apple. The Baby Shaker app, developed by Sikalosoft, enables users to shake the phone uncontrollably in order to quell the crying from a hand drawn baby until red X marks appear over its eyes. Raising children can be quite a challenge, but who says that this app can be used as a stress reliever? Advocates against the tiny bit of software, such as The Sarah Jane Brain Foundation, protested heavily against the popular program that only costs 99 cents to download. Apple eventually showed humility and admitted fault for approving the controversial app and quickly removed it from further distribution.
