Apple has banned a dating and friendship app for unvaccinated people from its App Store â€” but the so-called â€œTinder for anti-vaxxersâ€ is still available on Android devices
Apple said that Unjected â€œinappropriately refers to the COVID-19 pandemic in its comment or theme,â€ according to emails from the company to Unjected that were shared with The Post.
The app includes features like chat rooms, matches and a directory of businesses that are friendly to unvaccinated people, although the company removed a misinformation-laden â€œsocial feedâ€ at Googleâ€™s request, co-creator Shelby Thomson, a 27-year-old photographer and mother in Maui, Hawaii told The Post.
As of Saturday, Unjected also ran an anti-vax Instagram account with nearly 25,000 followers â€” but the account had been banned by mid-day on Monday
Thomson is now running another account with fewer followers, she said
â€œWeâ€™re being mislabeled as this anti-vax community, which is so not the case,â€ Thomson said
