Bangalore: Apple has rejected an iPhone application promoting none other than the Motorola's Droid smartphone. The application, aptly named iDroid and created by Swavv Apps, didn't really do much for the end user.

Essentially, the app would, display the glowing red Droid eye. If the user tapped on the eye, it then showed some marketing bullet points about the competing phone such as the fact that it can run simultaneous apps and has a slide-out keyboard (something that the iPhone lacks). The second page also shows a picture of the Droid with its keyboard out, reports TechCrunch.

Apple states the app was rejected purely on the fact that there's no real functionality, and it's essentially an advertisement for another product.
