Exodus International's "gay cure" app

While it's unlikely that any iPhone app could ever successfully convert gay people to being straight, Apple did find this particular app offensive enough to boot it from the App Store. Exodus' self-described mission is to "minister grace and truth to a world impacted by homosexuality" and claims to be "the largest worldwide ministry to those struggling with unwanted same-sex attraction." An Apple spokesman said the company decided to ditch the app because it "violates the developer guidelines by being offensive to large groups of people."
