∞ Apple, put that porn app back in the App Store

Update 2: Apple did remove the app.

Update: It appears I jumped to conclusions. Apple did not pull the app, the developer took the app down because it was so popular, it was crashing the image server.

I left my little rant in place, just in case I decide to yell at Apple for something else later on. GOOD APPLE!

BAD APPLE!

One of the greatest things you’ve done on the App Store since announcing you sold 1 billion of them and you completely screw it up. You took down “Hottest Girls–2200+ Topless, Sexy Babes and Nude Models” from the store. This is not about allowing porn on the App Store, it’s about your role as gatekeeper–a role you should be trying to get away from gradually. This morning’s app was a great step in allowing the individual users to control their own iPhone content.

I know this is a slippery slope and it is your store, but it looks ridiculous when apps get approved and pulled, then approved, then get put in a waiting pattern until something gets changed.

Let people use the fine parental controls included with iPhone 3.0 and decide what they want on their iPhone.
