Apple Removes App That Let Users Make Fake Driver's Licenses

Well, that was quick. On Friday, we wrote about the iOS app that allowed users to craft fake driver’s licenses — for the sole purpose of entertaining and amusing their friends, of course — and how one U.S. Senator had appealed to Apple CEO Tim Cook to have it removed from Apple’s online store. Looks like that may have been sufficient, as the app has is no longer on sale.

In a statement, Senator Bob Casey thumps his chest in victory:

I urged Apple to take the responsible step of removing this dangerous app, and I’m pleased that the app is no longer available in the store… As Pennsylvania and states across the country deal with the rising problem of identity theft, tools that facilitate breaking the law should not be available to potential criminals.
