Apple has been repeatedly accused to yielding to the demands of China in its censorship and access control demands. Now, even after a protester was shot, Apple has removed a crowd-sourced app developed by protesters to track the location of demonstrations and police. The app however is still being offered by Google.
Apple declared that the protest app “facilitates, enables, or encourages an activity that is not legal.”
Just for the record: Police chief Stephen Lo said that shooting of the 18 year old was “lawful and reasonable”.
