Apple Allows Adult, First Title Pulled off

June 26th, 2009 by Arjan Olsder Posted in Adult Games | 1 Comment »

Apple Yesterday market the start of a new market for Apple. By introducing parental controls, the company is finally opening up the App Store to mobile adult entertainment.

Yesterday, the first adult app was launched on the app store. The app was titles Hottest girls, but was pulled offline only hours after the launch.

Though in first case all fingers pointed to Apple, it appears that the developers themselves put the App offline according to TechCrunch. The developer wrote the following on it's website;

“The Hottest Girls app is temporarily sold out. The server usage is extremely high because of the popularity of this app. Thus, by not distributing the app, we can prevent our servers from crashing. Those who already have the app will still be able to use our app. To answer the question on everyone’s mind: Yes, the topless images will still be there when it is sold again.”wrote the  ATG development team.

Yet, the story gets weird when a spokesman of Apple talked to CNN about the issue;

“Apple will not distribute applications that contain inappropriate content, such as pornography. The developer of this application added inappropriate content directly from their server after the application had been approved and distributed, and after the developer had subsequently been asked to remove some offensive content. This was a direct violation of the terms of the iPhone Developer Program. The application is no longer available on the App Store.”

So Apple is allowing Nudity, but pulling this title anyway? When reading through the text, Apple claims that the content shown after the approval process wasn't the same as before. This means that Apple will probably have some limit to what is allowed to show. Many operators have similar rules when it comes to showing nudity. This company probably broke those rules with their new content.
