Apple is removing most of sexy apps such as “Asian Boobs, upskirt apps, Bikini Blast” from its App Store, but they’re not removing all of them. Big publishers like Sports Illustrated, FHM and Playboy are to stay. Apples’ Phil Schiller spoke with the New York Times “So why did Apple decide to pull these sexy apps? “It came to the point where we were getting customer complaints from women who found the content getting too degrading and objectionable, as well as parents who were upset with what their kids were able to see”. “When asked about the Sports Illustrated app, Mr. Schiller said Apple took the source and intent of an app into consideration. “The difference is this is a well-known company with previously published material available broadly in a well-accepted format,” he said.” So apparently exposed cleavage in a Playboy application is less offensive to women and parents because it’s also being printed in a magazine, or something. It also offers videos with titles such as “Young and Hardly Innocent” and “Lucy in Naughty Nighties.” FHM’s $1.99 app is also filled with bikini and panty pics via its “Girl of the Week” and “Non-Stop Honeys” features.
