Adult iPhone Apps

iPhone developers angry as Apple purges adult apps

Developers have expressed anger at Apple's decision to ban some adult-themed applications from its iPhone.

Thousands of apps with adult-themed content have been removed from the store since Friday although some, such as one from Playboy, remain.

Apple has said that certain apps were removed following customer complaints.

Developer Jon Atherton is angry that previously-approved apps have been pulled, and accuses Apple of "experimenting with our livelihoods".


ChilliFresh is an Australian company that creates apps for the iPhone, including the recently banned Wobble, which provides pictures of women's breasts.

"I'm now worried the eco-system is run by puritans and is not fair to all players," developer Jon Atherton said on its website.

I don't have an iPhone so I really don't care but if you're business model is writing software to show women's breasts (linked to the iPhones accelerometer probably), you probably should diversify. I mean, how many 14-year olds have iPhones anyway?

Apple is acting more like the Chinese government. they are getting more powerful and there is a swagger that their sh*t doesn't stink.
