Encrypted chat service Cryptocat for iPhone rejected by Apple

Encrypted chat service Cryptocat has spent the past two years blocking outsiders from reading private conversations, and now it's facing a block of its own trying to get onto Apple's App Store. Developer Nadim Kobeissi took to Twitter today to blast the iPhone and iPad maker for unjustly rejecting Cryptocat for iPhone, software that was announced earlier this month. Kobeissi says he's under a non-disclosure agreement as part of the Apple developer program and cannot go into specifics, but claims that the reasons the company gave for its rejection were "illegitimate," and could threaten similar apps. "One of the reasons for Cryptocat for iPhone's rejection by Apple strongly implies that any other encrypted group chat app can be rejected," Kobeissi said in a follow-up tweet.

One wonders if the encryption was too strong and thus its deployment would be torpedoed by the NSA ?

i doubt it was too strong given the NSA's history, but it would increase their workload if a lot of people took it up

jabber.org is dropping in encryption requirements at some stage http://www.jabber.org/security.html

Dont be mislead into thinking the nsa are all about computers mate they do a lot of other stuff like code book theft and other mundane but vital roles such as listening to all broadcasts across the globe commercial or private for intelligence, no intelligence agency with any savvy  sits there all day slaving away using computers when the vendors master keys are easier to get with a court order.
