Apple delayed publishing an application that referenced the Android operating system, PC World reports.

According to the developer's blog, Apple found the Flash of Genius: SAT Vocab application inappropriate and irrelevant. In a note to the developer the company said: "Providing future platform compatibility plans or other general platform references are not relevant in the context of the iPhone App Store. While your application has not been rejected, it would be appropriate to remove "Finalist in Google's Android Developer's Challenge!" from the Application Description." It seems to us that noting prior recognition would be a good thing to help propel the application's success. Apparently Apple disagrees. [via PC World]
