Baby Shaker

Baby Shaker

App Maker: Sikalosoft
Reason for Rejection: "Deeply offensive"

The app allowed users to silence the cries of an imaginary infant by shaking the phone until the baby appeared dead. Apple yanked the app in April 2009 after severe criticism from child-care advocacy groups. The app description read: "See how long you can endure his or her adorable cries before you just have to find a way to quiet the baby down!"
