AdMob Sticks Around in iPhone Apps Despite Developer Agreement

AdMob wasn’t supposed to stick around for long after Apple updated their Developer Agreement, but they’re still pretty fervent in the iTunes App Store. According to the Wall Street Journal, Apple is still approving applications sporting AdMob. CNET reports,

… two developers told the Journal that their AdMob-equipped ads were recently approved by Apple, meaning the company either forgot to enforce the restriction (unlikely) or has decided to back off that clause as federal regulators take a closer look at Apple’s mobile-applications business.

AdMob and Apple declined to comment, but trust me when I say you’ll know when Apple has pulled the trigger against their advertising adversaries.
