Fake license app banned from Apple’s App store

Fake license app banned from Apple's App store
Wait, this couldn’t be fake, could it?

From a report in PC World magazine:

On Monday, Apple removed a two-year old app, called Drivers License that allowed you to create a fake drivers license using a photo, biographical info and a state template of your choice. The app was pulled after the Coalition for a Secure Driver’s License tapped Pennsylvania Senator Bob Casey to send a letter to Apple asking that the free app come down. The Senator was concerned about the ability to send the fake license to an email account, which could then be printed and laminated.

The company that makes the free app responded that the app was supposed to be fun, and it produced a low-resolution mock-up of a driver’s license that doesn’t look like a state-issued license, can’t be mistaken for a real ID, and contains the words "MOCK by DriversEd.com".
