The app was dropped from the App Store Sunday, after reporters from NBC News discovered it and alerted Apple. The app, launched in April, reached as high as No. 10 on the App Store charts and No. 1 in the App Store's Entertainment section.

"The App Store has always supported all points of view being represented, as long as the apps are respectful to users with differing opinions and the quality of the experience is great,"Apple's Stephanie Saffer said in a statement to the media that was published by NBC News. "We have published clear guidelines that developers must follow in order for their apps to be distributed by the App Store, designed to foster innovation and provide a safe environment to all of our users. We will take swift action to remove any apps that violate our guidelines or the law — we take this responsibility very seriously."
