On November 12, 2009, it was reported that Apple rejected Griggs' iPhone application which enabled the user to contact every U.S. Congressman or Senator based on GPS coordinates. The application also featured animated bobble head caricatures of each representative. A caricature of U.S. Congresswoman Nancy Pelosi was deemed "objectionable" and among the reasons for rejection. On Nov. 14, amid rising controversy, Apple reversed its decision and approved the application for its online store.
