Apple Reconsiders and Approves Nine Inch Nails' App Update

Nine Inch Nails' frontman Trent Reznor recently spoke out about Apple's approval process for iPhone applications after an update to the band's own application was rejected due to "objectionable" downloadable content that wasn't housed within the app itself.

In an update to the situation, Reznor reports via his Twitter account that the update has now been accepted by Apple and that the app remains unchanged from the previously-submitted version, suggesting that Apple has revisited its previous rejection.

Recent reports have suggested that parental controls coming in iPhone OS 3.0 this summer would open the door for the approval of more apps containing such "objectionable content", and the latest beta version of the new operating system released last night does in fact include such controls.
