How To Roll A Joint iPhone App Passes Apple Censorship Machine Just Fine

Steve wants a porn-free world, but he doesn't seem to care much about a drug-free one. After all, he's a flowerpower LSD kid at heart and, technically, the Roll Your Own iPhone app doesn't promote any drug use. Nossir, it doesn't.

The app just shows how to master five rolling techniques with step-by-step videos and seventy detailed photos. And it gives you all the information you need about mixtures, papers, packing and crutches. Still, I bet many parents will not be happy to see this, especially certain governator—whose happy happy image is used to promote the app online. My bet: The Apple Store censorship machine will rethink its original decision and take this app down three minutes after I hit "Publish". [App Store via Roll Your Own via Krapps]

    I'm sure if it had boobs in it, it would not have been approved...

    Amazingly 24 hours on and it's still there. Just downloaded it and it's quite funny (Particularly as it features everyone's favourite Governator having a puff! :) ). Not that I need any instructions on rolling errm "tobacco"..

    Personally I find the Bong app from Cydia much more useful :) http://modmyi.com/cydia/package.php?id=34621

    Why would it be banned? It'll stay on for the same reason tobacconists and hippies can still sell bongs. As long as they openly claim it's for tobacco use, anyone getting high does it on their own accord and accepts responsibility.

    It's just a convenient paper bag.
