Only in ‘Amercia’: Romney app needs copy editing

Charles Apple | Washington Post
Perhaps some of the copy editors losing their newspaper jobs could find new employment with the presidential campaigns. The Romney campaign released a “With Mitt” iPhone app Tuesday that lets users “customize photos with a variety of Mitt-inspired artistic frames, add personalized messages, and then share with your friends.” One of the 14 superimposed photo messages calls for “A Better Amercia.”

The Washington Post reports the Romney campaign has submitted a corrected app to Apple for approval. Apple says it usually completes its app review process within five business days, so we may see Amercia-stamped photos floating around for a few more days.
