So everyone with an iPod or an iPhone has noticed the recent lack of nudity in the app store. Or at least the male population with an iPod or iPhone.
Sadly, I don’t own either of these devices anymore so I still get my naked fix the old fashioned way……I mean if I did look at nudey pictures….I don’t….You know what I mean….
So if you haven’t heard, Apple decided to pull all of it’s ‘adult content’ apps. There has been a lot of stink about this move but not just from the guys that like their bikini apps.
Gizmodo has an article out telling how the SuicideGirls had an app, an app made by women and used by women, for the empowerment of women. That and they are mad because their app didn’t show complete nudity. You can find that article here.
Other people are mad because even though over 5,000 apps were removed, not all ‘objectionable content’ was removed. This article from PCWorld has a nice list of apps that were not banned by the almighty Apple. The list of allowed apps includes those apps of Sport’s Illustrated Bikini Edition app and Playboy’s app. Hmmm, I wonder why these high-profile moguls are allowed to keep their apps active but the small time developers get cut out? Is Apple trying to say something by this? Or are they just trying to be a little more family friendly? Or are they just getting sick of the annoying feminist groups that keep pestering them about ‘degrading women’?
Any way you look at it, I think Apple made the right decision. They have been exclusive and have been loyal to only fanboys for so long already and it doesn’t seem to be hurting them so far. I think by now they probably know what they are doing. Keep doing what you’re doing Apple.
