Apple Accidentally Approves A Gameboy Advance Emulator

Awesome Baby Names generator caught the Apple apps approval team napping, it seems, although not for very long.

TouchArcade reports on the seemingly innocently named “Awesome Baby Names” app, which on the surface appeared to do what it said on the tin… if you think certain baby names are awesome I guess. However, if you tapped the top left corner of the app three times, the middle button once, then immediately above that once, it launched a full Gameboy Advance emulator. Who on earth thinks of that tapping sequence as a standard thing?

Apple doesn’t take kindly to emulators, so its life on the App store was remarkably short-lived, although (and be warned) there are baby naming apps with the same title on the Australian app store. Buy those, and all you’ll be able to do is pick between Tarquin and Algonquin for your offspring.
