WikiLeaks

WikiLeaks, a controversial whistleblower site that routinely posts classified documents online, has come under a lot of scrutiny from the United States government, which last year pressured Amazon to stop hosting WikiLeaks on its servers. Shortly after Amazon ditched the site, Apple kicked the site's unofficial application from its App Store. An Apple spokeswoman told the New York Times that the company removed the app because "apps must comply with all local laws and may not put an individual or group in harm's way." WikiLeaks fans can still get access to multiple variations of WikiLeaks unofficial apps on the Android Market, however.
