Ok, here we go again. Once again, Apple is in full rejection mode over at the iPad App Store. They are rejecting any application with the work “Pad” in the title. This is similar to what they did with apps with “iPod” in the title.

Over at, they have a screenshot from a developer who created an application called ContactPad, got rejected, and got a letter back from Apple. Here is that screenshot:

And so it begins, the iPad App Store crackdown. It has always seemed kind of silly to me that they cant use iPod in a name, as long as they credit it as Apple’s trademark. I just dont get this business sometimes.
