    Default Apple to put the brakes on "titillating" apps



    TechCrunch is reporting that Apple is putting a stop to overly-sexual apps in the App Store. Not only are they rejecting these types of apps, they are actually removing some of the apps that have made it through the approval process such as the app Wobble that adds a "jiggle" feature to breasts in the images.

    Here is the full account by the Wobble developer:
    1. No images of women in bikinis (Ice skating tights are not OK either)
    2. No images of men in bikinis! (I didn't ask about Ice Skating tights for men)
    3. No skin (he seriously said this) (I asked if a Burqa was OK, and the Apple guy got angry)
    4. No silhouettes that indicate that Wobble can be used for wobbling boobs (yes – I am serious, we have to remove the silhouette in this pic)
    5. No sexual connotations or innuendo: boobs, babes, booty, sex – all banned
    6. Nothing that can be sexually arousing!! (I doubt many people could get aroused with the pic above but those puritanical guys at Apple must get off on pretty mundane things to find Wobble "overtly sexual!)
    7. No apps will be approved that in any way imply sexual content (not sure how Playboy is still in the store, but …)

    I don't think they need to ban them. They need to make a category for them that are only accessible if your Apple ID shows you are 18 or over.
