So, apparently the White House's Apple App Store-listed app is rated 12+ (albeit in the United States version of the store) for the reason of 'Infrequent/Mild' references to or use of 'Realistic Violence[,]... Alcohol, Tobacco or Drug[s]'. Overall, I am rather amused by this! I doubt, however, such a government institution would be encouraging illegal drug use or underage alcohol use.
Seriously, I would have thought that such ratings would be thrown out for clearly educational apps such as something from the White House, like with nature documentaries in some countries (otherwise said documentaries like Nature would basically be rated for sex scenes). Maybe I'm too sensitive, but I support the US Government -- the White House in particular -- for making the app, but not the rating they got, presumably from Apple, for their efforts. Anyway, the obligatory screenshots (the first of which is also uploaded to Flickr for some reason):
(There's almost certainly other bizarre examples in the iTunes store, mind, but this one seems rather odd to me.)
And, in other news, I'm looking at getting the 1986 report of the Royal Commission on the Electoral System on PGDP fairly soon, as I now apparently have the clearances lined up for that with their copyright people.
