Apple cuts French App Store's 'Jew Or Not Jew' App

Published: 09.15.11, 00:55 / Israel News

Apple Inc. has removed a mobile app, called "Jew or Not Jew?", from its online App Store in France. The app let users consult a database of celebrities and public figures to determine if they are Jewish or not. Its removal follows a complaint from a French anti-racism group that threatened to sue the iPhone and iPad maker.

 

The app, "Juif ou pas Juif?" in French, was selling for 0.79 euro cents ($1.08) in France until it was cut on Wednesday. SOS Racisme had argued that the app violated France's strict laws banning the compiling of people's personal details without their consent. (AP)
