WOW this makes Apple look really bad if it’s true

Personally I see no reason for Apple to be quaking in its boots over Google’s Android platform, but apparently it is as according to Flash of Genius, the developers of a SAT test prep app called Flash of Genius: SAT Vocab 2.2, Apple has “asked” them to remove all references to Android in their app description.

That’s right, apparently you are no longer allowed to let people know your app placed in the Google’s Android Developer’s Challenge for fear someone about to download it will cancel their iPhone service, buy an Android phone, and then purchase the app there. Or maybe Apple’s hatred of “Flash” runs so deep they’re just looking to mess with a company with “Flash” in its name.

Here’s the full letter Sent to Flash of Genius

Dear Flash of Genius, LLC,

You know, with the Super Bowl just 2 days away, it might be time to take another look at Apple’s famous 1984 ad…

    Just business as usual. Android are saying some bad things about Apple, so Apple don’t want Android to be mentioned.

    The 1984 commercial just says that you shouldn’t follow THAT guy. You should follow Apple’s guy; Steve.
