Romney's iPhone App Misspells 'America'

WASHINGTON, (UPI) — A typo misspelling “America” in presumptive Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney’s iPhone app has gone viral online.

Romney’s iPhone app, “I’m with Mitt,” allows users to post photos of themselves with 14 pre-made banners, including one reading “A Better Amercia,” USA Today reported Wednesday.

The typo became a trending topic on Twitter, with users of the social media site mocking the mistake and speculating on the meaning of “Amercia.”

Romney campaign spokeswoman Andrea Saul told MSNBC the campaign has submitted a corrected version of the app to Apple, but it needs to be approved by the company before it can be downloaded by users.

“Mistakes happen,” Saul said.
