Fake Microsoft Word App Makes Way Into Apple's App Store

Apple takes a lot of heat for rejecting apps for being too controversial or for not complying with its terms. But the efficiency of its app review process is in the spotlight after a fake Microsoft Word app somehow made its way into the App Store, according to a report from BetaNews.

What's funny about the incident is that the so-called Microsoft Word 2012 app, which sold for $9.99 before being pulled down, included this grammatically challenged description:

"Every modern person some time or other is faced with Microsoft Office Word. However not everyone knows it to perfection! How quickly can you page numbering? How about adding and changing the page header? If takes more than a minute, this program is for you! Now you always have a list of tips which makes any Microsoft Office task easy and simple."
