Apple criticized for app that 'cures' gays

March 21, 2011 12:00:00 AM PDT
Apple is being criticized for approving an iPhone app that offers to "free" people from homosexuality.

The app comes from a group called Exodus International, which describes itself as a ministry for people and families "impacted by homosexuality."

The app was given a four-plus rating by Apple, meaning it was found to have no objectionable content. A lot of people disagree.

So far, more than 90,000 people have signed a petition calling on Apple to remove the app from the iTunes store.
