Trent Reznor: “NEWS FLASH: Apple Has Approved the NIN iPhone App Update”

Apple has reversed course and approved an update to NIN: Access, Nine Inch Nails' iPhone app. The company had initially denied the release of the update for "Objectionable Content," according to group leader Trent Reznor, who also said that the objectionable content was simply access to 1994's The Downward Spiral, an album that is available on iTunes itself.

In a Twitter update, Mr. Reznor told fans, "NEWS FLASH: Apple has approved the NIN iPhone app update. Should be live in a few hours." In a follow up post, he added, "The NIN iPhone app is unchanged, the 'issues' seem to have been resolved."

In other words, Apple changed whatever position it had initially taken with the app and approved it as-is, at least according to Mr. Reznor's version of the story.

NIN: Access allows Nine Inch Nails fans to find each other through iPhone's built-in GPS, listen to music from the band's catalog, upload and view fan photos, access the group's forums, and send and receive private messages to other users.

The update also gave fans access to songs from The Downward Spiral, an obscenity-laden album that seemed to have run contrary to Apple's mostly secretive approval process.
