Apple Removes Unoffical WikiLeaks App

A number of tech blogs have reported that Apple has removed an app that collected (unofficially) documents from the controversial WikiLeaks site. 

Here’s more from TUAW:  “Apple has quickly pulled a WikiLeaks app (Google cache) it approved for sale on the App Store earlier this week. The unofficial app went live on the App Store on December 17  … TechCrunch has reached out to Apple and the developer for comment, but only the developer has responded so far, saying that Apple changed the official status of his app to ‘Removed From Sale.'”

A similar WikiLeaks app is still available for Android smartphones (screenshot is embedded above). What do you think–should app makers be barred from using this material?
