    Default Apple Withdraws Book Selling iOS App in China

    In what comes as yet another attempt by Apple to assuage the Chinese, the company has withdrawn from availability in China an iOS book selling app.

    Apple reportedly pulled the app from the Chinese iTunes store because it contains books banned by the Chinese government. That's what the app’s developer told The Financial Times this week.

    The online bookstore provided access to 10 works, including three by Chinese writer Wang Lixiong, FT said, citing Hao Peiqiang, the app’s developer. Books by Wang, who is also a political activist, are mostly banned in the country, according to the newspaper.
    Between Tim Cook's recent apology to the Chinese over his company's confusing warranty policies, to news of Apple pulling this iOS bookselling app, it's no wonder why some are criticizing Apple for needlessly kissing up to the Chinese in every way possible.

    But China remains a huge emerging market for Apple. And any impediment to a positive working relationship with the government there could result in billions of lost revenue for the Cupertino, California-based iDevice maker.
