Pull My Finger is back in the App Store, signifies new genre of Apps

After being rejected by Apple for its obvious supposed “limited utility” back in September, the infamous Pull My Finger app has returned. According to its developer (via MacRumors), Apple informed him that his app would be the first of a “whole new genre of apps,” and that “more apps will follow that may have been previously not allowed.”

Clearly, the real news here is that Apple seems to be loosening up its stranglehold over what does and does not fly in its App Store.  Blocking offensive and/or obscene applications is entirely reasonable, but rejecting an application because it is too silly or useless should be left up to the consumer.

Pull My Finger (currently listed under ‘Entertainment‘) is available now for $.99 from iTunes.
