Apple rejects soft-core porn iPhone app

Posted: 12:59 PM ET

False alarm: Apple is not - at least not yet - approving iPhone apps containing pictures of naked women.

The blogosphere lit up Thursday with reports that Hottest Girls had the distinguished privilege of being the first application approved for sale in the iTunes App Store that contains nudity. The Hottest Girls iPhone app is not new, but as of Thursday, it added photos of topless women to its gallery of "2200+ sexy bikini babes and lingerie models."

Of course, porn has long been accessible on the iPhone through its Internet browser, but this appeared to mark the first time Apple has sanctioned images of naked women for the popular device.

Some speculated the "change" in Apple's porn policy was a result of expanded parental controls in the new iPhone 3.0 OS software.  Age restrictions can now be set to prevent mature downloads from the App Store.

According to a Gizmodo article that seemed oddly excited by this news:

This is not just an application that downloads softcore content from the Web, bypassing Apple's censorship. There is no censorship here, as this is truly an Apple approved app "rated 17+" for "frequent/intense sexual content or nudity" and "frequent/intense mature/suggestive theme."

The editors at Wired.com took the Hottest Girls app for a test drive and were underwhelmed. "The application itself is terrible," wrote Wired's tester, "but you can be sure that there will be more, and better, very soon."

Shortly afterwards, the Hottest Girls app, which claims to be the first officially sanctioned iTunes app to contain topless photos, disappeared from the iTunes store.

A website allegedly run by Hottest Girls app developers explained the disappearance:

The Hottest Girls app is temporarily sold out. The server usage is extremely high because of the popularity of this app. Thus, by not distributing the app, we can prevent our servers from crashing. Those who already have the app will still be able to use our app. To answer the question on everyone's mind: Yes, the topless images will still be there when it is sold again.

By Thursday afternoon, Apple's public relations team felt the need to weigh in. From Apple spokesman Tom Neumayr:

Apple will not distribute applications that contain inappropriate content, such as pornography. The developer of this application added inappropriate content directly from their server after the application had been approved and distributed, and after the developer had subsequently been asked to remove some offensive content. This was a direct violation of the terms of the iPhone Developer Program. The application is no longer available on the App Store.

Did Apple do the right thing? Is the fuss over this episode just silly? And, given how lucrative the pornography industry is, is it just a matter of time before nudie pics become available through the App Store?

I think it's a good day when corporations and governments stay out of my life as much as possible. Leaving the content filters up to parents is a great thing. The only thing I am disappointed about, I want the Hottest Men app.


Janice Poehner   June 25th, 2009 1:21 pm ET

I'm good with the soft-core porn. But why only nuddie women? Man up guys and make soft core equal opportunity!


skp   June 25th, 2009 1:21 pm ET

Oh please. Can we not have even one communications outlet which isn't saturated in sex?


Jared in Cali   June 25th, 2009 1:21 pm ET

I think this is a little counter-intuitive for Apple. I mean, I thought that Apple was setting a precedent for incredible, respectable machines. Now, the App Store is just another conduit for the countless outlets of perversion? No bueno, Apple.


ed best   June 25th, 2009 1:28 pm ET

As the old saying goes, "Now that we've determined what sort of person you are, we just have to agree on the price."


mike   June 25th, 2009 1:29 pm ET

Who wrote the slanted language in this article? I doubt Apple specifically designed parental controls into 3.0 so porn merchants could distribute... maybe they did?


Paul   June 25th, 2009 1:33 pm ET

It's a sad commentary on the state of morality when an application that exploits the sin of lust is looked upon a "good thing". We have important things to attend to without these evil distractions to add to the sadness and decay of the world.


Debra Kaufman   June 25th, 2009 1:37 pm ET

Asia and Western Europe has had its mobile porn for a long time. Despite the obstacles of the walled garden, it's also found its way into the U.S. mobile scene – and with the mobile web, there will just be more and better. Read articles on Playboy mobile and mobile erotica at http://www.MobilizedTV.com.


R. Lewellen   June 25th, 2009 1:38 pm ET

Anything for money. Let's see how the industry makes alot of money off of unemployed men with sexual fantasia.


Chris   June 25th, 2009 1:38 pm ET

Sure, fine with porn on iPhones and Blackberries. Two things need to happen though.

1. Proper parental controls. - iPhone or App-based

2. Some respect for others around the iPhone porn viewer. Walking around watching porn is a little tasteless.


NothingShocking   June 25th, 2009 1:40 pm ET

The App has been pulled and I think Paul needs a hug.


PJS   June 25th, 2009 1:40 pm ET

Thank goodness I did not buy an iphone. I was minutes away. Will not purchase anything by Apple in the future. Kids use these iphones.
What idiots.


Brett   June 25th, 2009 1:41 pm ET

Why does this matter? If you really wanted to see porn on your iphone, you can go ahead and hit the internet button.


jj   June 25th, 2009 1:41 pm ET

si bueno! This is capitalism at its best. if you dont like it, dont buy it. set the controls so your kids, or you, dont get it. that simple. if enough dont buy it, it will wilt away.....i say sell whatever you like.


jay   June 25th, 2009 1:43 pm ET

Is this really necessary? I thought Apple had more class....


Tex   June 25th, 2009 1:43 pm ET

It's Apple's specialty. Applications for people too dumb to use Google.


Sheri Bannister   June 25th, 2009 1:43 pm ET

Porn is legal people. If you think its sinful then go home and read your bible and leave everyone else alone...


Mindy   June 25th, 2009 1:43 pm ET

Classy, Apple.


Craig   June 25th, 2009 1:44 pm ET

"In a related story; grades, the standard of education, and workplace productivity shrply decline. Meanwhile, bandwidth spikes and the pockets of tele-com and ISP B.O.D. members are instantly lined with gold."


L   June 25th, 2009 1:44 pm ET

Paul, I couldn't agree with you more. Apple made a bad move here. Whether you admit it or not, we all know what the high road is, and they have chosen not to take it. I will no longer look to Apple to buy from.


marc   June 25th, 2009 1:44 pm ET

...come on people...this is 2009. Stop being so prudish...if you dont want it...then dont buy it. Evil distractions...seriously? You arent being forced to download it.


Greg   June 25th, 2009 1:45 pm ET

What's the big deal really? This isn't pornography. Even if you are offended by topless women, you can rejoice in that you don't have to download (and pay for) the app. Apple is no more culpable than any other media industry. Should we boycott Verizon, Comcast, Microsoft, Time Warner, Disney (Yes...that Disney... they own a LOT of companies that produce some raunchy stuff.), and anyone else who allows people to choose their form of entertainment?


Jason   June 25th, 2009 1:45 pm ET

Bring on the porn! It was only a matter of time before the multi-billion dollar porn biz invaded the iPhone. Im for it. Any way to make a buck in this economy is great- Anyways its just SEX! Everyone need to lighten up-


Valerie   June 25th, 2009 1:46 pm ET

I personally wouldn't use this app. However, the iPods and iPhones are just miniaturized personal computers. Like other computers, what is on the hard drive is up to the owner or guardian (if we include minors) of that computer. Legal or illegal activity is another issue.


Justin Whittaker   June 25th, 2009 1:47 pm ET

Sad. Sad. Sad. The exploitation of women and the destruction of lives will continue. Porn is evil. This is a disappointing move for Apple.


Emily W   June 25th, 2009 1:47 pm ET

Mike, the writer didn't say they made parental controls to allow porn, they said the parental controls are likely the reason that they now allow porn. The controls are the reason for the porn, not the porn is the reason for the controls.

If people want nudies on their phone, let them. It's not a huge deal.


eeraser   June 25th, 2009 1:47 pm ET

Update, they pulled the app! :-(
The iron fist has come down.
I wonder if they will pull the web browser since it can access naked images?


Steve R   June 25th, 2009 1:48 pm ET

Absolutely open the platform to all content, and make the hardware and plans more economical for all users by subsidizing it with the app sales. Let the iphone vibrate harder for $$ and let people jam it down their pants for all i care. just improve service and lower costs if there is a windfall.. realistically it will never happen


Dan - Portland, OR   June 25th, 2009 1:49 pm ET

It was just a matter of time. For as many people out there who dislike porn and what it represents it is a multi billion dollar business. In the end, thats what this is about...money.


disappointed girl   June 25th, 2009 1:50 pm ET

another classic example of professional company gone bad. when will people get the point that pornography is nothing more than pavlov's dog syndrome. they salivate when the bell rings but are not satisfied. people who chase the proverbial pornography are hoping to be fed from a one dimensional picture that will never truly quench their need for connection. i was hoping that apple would stay true to decency and authenticity.


Joe   June 25th, 2009 1:51 pm ET

This is going to lead to a ban of Smart phone at work. I can already see it. AT&T employees are not allowed to have their smart phones with them at work. I can see kids getting suspended or expelled and iPhones being conficated permanently. I see people getting fired for having pornography at work. This is a bad idea...


Patrick   June 25th, 2009 1:51 pm ET

Apple is about 2 x's behind the rest of the net.


keith   June 25th, 2009 1:51 pm ET

And that'a what parenta are for control your children


Tristan :)   June 25th, 2009 1:52 pm ET

I can't wait for a guy apps :) of course there's gay sites that work well... but this is better, more easily accessible.


J.A.S.   June 25th, 2009 1:52 pm ET

Pornography is known to be an addiction. It is found within the internet, in stores, newstacks, and more places. However, we will find it on phones, an instrument that can virtually be found anywhere in the world. It seems that's it's a great day for the pornographic industry, but it also a sad day for parents. This will be difficult to shun from children. Shame on you Apple for giving this opportunity to the pornographic industry. You have lost one potential customer.


patricia   June 25th, 2009 1:52 pm ET

FAIL... already GONE! http://www.engadget.com/2009/06/25/apple-pulls-adult-content-app-from-app-store-anyone-surprised/

Thank you Big Brother!


Demo-crazy   June 25th, 2009 1:53 pm ET

Recession time! Sell what the basal instincts buy!! This seems to be the line of iPhone. Otherwise, no need to go this route for a company which can sell a million phones within few days of launch.

They must consider serious sensor as the phones are gadgets used by even below 17 kids. How does such notification help in ensuring who sees what?


bob   June 25th, 2009 1:53 pm ET

It was only a mtter of time before this happened. It's a shame that it did. As a society we should be ashamed of what this will do to our kids.


Marco   June 25th, 2009 1:53 pm ET

Thank goodness I just bought my iphone. Like ten minutes ago. I will purchase anything by Apple now in the future. Adults use these iphones–and for good reason. What geniuses.


Jazzman   June 25th, 2009 1:53 pm ET

I'm sure this was all approval while Steve Job was under the knife.


NothingShocking   June 25th, 2009 1:53 pm ET

Again, this App no longer exists. Out of 50,000 apps a questionable one makes it through? Boohoo and how can someone afford an iphone for a kid anyways? Also, the developer of this app put the nude pictures up after the non-nude app was allowed. Apple did not approve the nude content. So Apple just needs to fix their loopholes.


David   June 25th, 2009 1:54 pm ET

Why do you keep saying "porn" when it isn't? Pornography is sexual activity... naked people not engaged in sexual activity can certainly be erotic but jeeze... why slam home the key word to get your intended demographic riled up over it, if you stuck with fact and used less sensationalism you might bring a more moderate group of people to see your point... unfortunately your effect on me is simply to emphasize our lack of progression and imposing your constricted inhibited ideals on our society... grow up.


Greg   June 25th, 2009 1:58 pm ET

I often hear the argument against porn because it exploits women. I tell you what, the day I see a woman forced to do porn or take off her top against her will, I will be the first in line to stop it. Of course, when I see beautiful models (or model like) taking their tops / bottoms off for cash / cars / etc., they are only exploiting themselves. I have 4 sisters - 3 of which are good looking enough to make a living doing this sort of thing. They just simply don't. They may have even been asked along the course of their lives, but I bet that guy got a nice smack in the face. Let the responsibility fall on the person that makes the choice, not everyone else.


Bryce   June 25th, 2009 1:59 pm ET

@ PJS – Kids also have parents who should doing their jobs as parents and making sure this type of content isn't available to them via parental controls. Do you own a DVD/VHS player? Do you have cable? A television? Did you know you can use these technologies to view pornography? If I were you, I cancel my cable subscription and destroy my TV and DVD player IMMEDIATELY. They are a threat to you and your child's purity.


Jason   June 25th, 2009 1:59 pm ET

Ok people are seriously going to criticize this as "porn". This is far from porn. If this is porn, then a nice looking woman in a bikini at a public pool is porn to. Come on people get reall!!


Karinna James   June 25th, 2009 1:59 pm ET

I'm a huge Apple fan and very disappointed in this decision. I hope there is a change in policy. I think our values in our western society have taken a step backward. I am clearly quite liberal in my thinking, but I also believe there needs to be some boundaries.


APP IS PULLED   June 25th, 2009 2:00 pm ET

THIS APP WAS PULLED. This article is wrong. The app was never approved with nude photos. After the author introduced the photos the app was pulled. Apple is not approving of these kinds of apps.


Marlene   June 25th, 2009 2:00 pm ET

Soft porn, hard porn, doesn't matter, it all exploits women. It may be legal, but exposing kids and teen to more of this matter is unnecessary. This is a bad business decision for Apple.


Mike   June 25th, 2009 2:00 pm ET

It's not really that big of a deal. They made something public that didn't need to be mentioned and something they just should have done.


Chuck   June 25th, 2009 2:01 pm ET

Why do we need to go there? why? Money? Is it really worth it? Let's think about the real cost of pornography to our families, communities and our country.

This maybe no big deal to lots of people but it just opens Pandora's box for the future and for future generations. No doubt the envelope will continually be pushed for the sake of $

Very disappointing!


Dan   June 25th, 2009 2:02 pm ET

Makes me sad. Further degration of the family now ... on the iPhone.


Osroc   June 25th, 2009 2:03 pm ET

As the article indicated, the availability of porn on the iphone has not changed. This is merely an okay'd app. If you don't want it don't purchase it. And if you don't want your kids looking at it, then use the tools available. Personally, I could care less but I am glad to see that businesses are starting to dictate less what their customers can and cannot do with their products.


Ian - SF   June 25th, 2009 2:04 pm ET

Well said, Jared in Cali. I too felt a sense of good moral structure with Apple Computer, Inc. and I was quite relishing in what seemed to be a company with solid values on which I could build a family. I felt pride when associating with Apple. Much like when associating with Disney. This diminishes my enthusiasm over the iPhone. People and companies must strike down corruption when faced with the dollar. Pornography is one of, if not the most, corrupt states of man and erodes mind, thought and well being.


san   June 25th, 2009 2:04 pm ET

I just allowed my 15 year old son to buy the new Itouch. I didn't know that it allowed minors to subscribe to sexy babes. Yes there is this application available to download.

The government needs to make some laws restricting this. They may as well allow kids to buy porno magazines and such, if they are going to allow this.

As soon as I get a chance, I am getting rid of my son's ITouch!


Tony from Scottsdale   June 25th, 2009 2:06 pm ET

Porn is ravaging our society into oblivion.

At each persons death and judgment, people will wish they turned their backs upon porn, instead of turning their backs on morality.

I am saddened to tears to think how tough it is for kids to grow up in this evil society. They are bombarded with temptations and vice everywhere.

So sad.


Jennifer   June 25th, 2009 2:06 pm ET

I don't know what is more disappointing – that a brand that connotes it's more "enlightened" than other technology brands contributing to the objectification of women or the fact that I'm not surprised, or even shocked. It's a sad state of affairs.


Robert   June 25th, 2009 2:06 pm ET

I can get this(no complaints here) but . . I can't get a south park app because it's offensive?


LJ Wilson   June 25th, 2009 2:06 pm ET

I hate the idea. My 13 yo Son has an iPhone and he also has the password for iTunes so he can get free game applications and apply updates to his existing applications. This would allow him to see content that I absolutely would never allow him to see.

Apple should keep the iPhone clean, if you want that junk – use Safari or use something else.


nick nick   June 25th, 2009 2:07 pm ET

apple should not censor what I can view on my iphone. if you are going to censor nudity/pornography, then let's censor all the religion related apps....i find religion incredibly offensive...and if i find it offensive, then YOU shouldn't be able to view it. go back to your cave and keep reading that fictional book you call the bible. idiots.


Erik   June 25th, 2009 2:08 pm ET

There is absolutely nothing wrong with nudity or sexuality. If you are a healthy human, you are sexual and enjoy arousing images. It's perfectly normal, natural and healthy.

I am glad Apple has moved in this direction. I hope more freedom of expression and entertainment will be allowed.


Telia   June 25th, 2009 2:09 pm ET

This really is quite an ignorant article. Mentioning 'topless women' and the reference to 'adolescent boys' is more than a little pathetic. The implication that young boys are the only ones interested in nudity makes CNN seem a bit on the adolescent side themselves. In a world where women can legally go topless in many places, how the hell can anyone consider topless women pornographic?


zia   June 25th, 2009 2:10 pm ET

I think it's a really good business initiative by Apple again. Well done Apple, you did it again. Revolutionary.


MD in Alberta   June 25th, 2009 2:11 pm ET

I think this is a good strategy for Apple. There's no doubt it will increase revenues for the company. Aside from that, it's nice to see a big name like Apple promoting (or at least marketing) these artistic images of the female human body.

For years, the human frame has been labelled as "gross" and "offensive" by conservatives and religious establishments . It's about time we stopped treating nude images of consenting adults as criminal content.


nash   June 25th, 2009 2:12 pm ET

PJS: the computer you likely typed your response on has access to a seemingly limitless number of sites where more goes on than what is offered in this app, much of which is even free. should kids not use computers? should you not buy a computer?


Brian   June 25th, 2009 2:12 pm ET

My perception of Apple has changed quite a bit today. I don't want this to affect me, but for some reason I'm bothered by it.


Nuf   June 25th, 2009 2:13 pm ET

The porn industry is demeaning to women and takes advantage of those most vulnerable. This is a sad day for Apple.


dana james   June 25th, 2009 2:14 pm ET

Thanks guys for the assist. I'm a customer of one of your competitors. I've been underwhelmed with their service and heavily leaning toward switching to your new iPhone. But you guys have just given me the clarity I needed to strengthen my resolve. I will never support a company that endeavors to offer the addictions of tobacco, porn or gambling, particularly to young people. I pray for the day when we'll stop cannibalizing our young to selfishly line our pockets. What a shame too, because you have a product that is good enough to compete in the marketplace without doing so. In my eyes, you've taken a great product and dragged it through the mud so that it is now too repugnant to consider. That takes some ingenuity fellas. Way to go, and thanks again for the clarity.


Michelle J.   June 25th, 2009 2:14 pm ET

Porn is the source of a lot of sadness and hurt in this world...as well as feeding individuals' sinful desires. Shame on Apple for caving (simply for profitability).


ANNA   June 25th, 2009 2:15 pm ET

Was going to purchase an iphone this weekend. Now I'll save my money.


Leroy   June 25th, 2009 2:15 pm ET

Is that an iPod in your pocket or are you just glad to see me?


Danielle Kelley   June 25th, 2009 2:16 pm ET

Great, as a teacher I not only have to police students for cheating, using drugs, bullying and other behaviors but now I get to add making sure students aren't getting porn on their phones at school to the list. I think Steve Jobs and the rest of the people at Apple need to get a clue and stop thinking with their wallets. Just because you can, doesn't mean you should. The Apple brand is sinking lower and lower in their morals; God help us all.


Dee   June 25th, 2009 2:16 pm ET

Thanks for making my choice easier or acutally making my choice for me. My son wanted an iPhone for his birthday and now I have a great reason not to buy it. Ditto for the parents of all his friends. Thanks Apple.


chemgod   June 25th, 2009 2:16 pm ET

Finally!!!! It's about time.


deb   June 25th, 2009 2:17 pm ET

Sad. Apple doesn't need to go this route–they are super successful without entering the cesspool business.


Fatherto4   June 25th, 2009 2:17 pm ET

Any thoughts I had entertained of buying an iPhone once it goes on sale at Verizon, have now been vanquished. Does Apple have any ethics above profits?


Sania Williamson   June 25th, 2009 2:17 pm ET

I am disappointed, will not buy future Apple products. We were beginning the switch to Apple phones and laptops for all 3 kids, but not now.


Robert W   June 25th, 2009 2:18 pm ET

Seriously, this country really needs to get over its extremely prudish attitude towards nudity. There is nothing wrong with the naked human body. Nudity in itself is NOT pornography, it is only phrased as such for this article for the purpose of sensationalism. Appreciating the beauty of a nude woman (or man) is not degrading to that person at all, much less an entire gender.

In short: America, grow up. If you don't want to see naked people, be they on an iPhone, the internet, a magazine or whatever, don't look. If you don't want your kids to see it, try parenting.


Branden   June 25th, 2009 2:18 pm ET

I believe it is very wrong for pornography to be made available on the iPhone.

Pornography has been linked to many violent acts, such as rape.

It tears families apart, and I have personally seen it destroy lives!

Pornography is addicting, just as much as drugs and shouldn't be made more easily accessible.

In fact, I wrote and entire artice about it. http://12bstewa.blogspot.com/2009/06/apple-allows-pornography-for-iphones.html


Chris   June 25th, 2009 2:20 pm ET

Paul – the "sin" of lust? I heard 5 girls were dancing naked in the woods with Tituba around a fire – may they burn in hell.


BMOBP   June 25th, 2009 2:20 pm ET

We're all human. We're curious. We see beauty in nature; we see it on the iPhone. Why not the human body? Apple will get this right. I see it as more of a celebration of the female form. Bravo Apple. FYI for those not persuaded, I've had the Hottest Girls app for some time. Hmm, there have been rare, questionable poses (usually due to questionable attire); but overwhelmingly, the pictures are tastefully done. Again, bravo Apple.


Jim F   June 25th, 2009 2:21 pm ET

There is a pretty thick line between pornography and nudity. From the sounds of it the pictures in the app are more tame than your typical midnight Cinemax program.

As for the folks saying "My kids use an iPhone!!!", you need to realize that your kids' iPhones can already access more nudity than any Apple app can present. And a quick look through your kids' app and usage history will show you that they are running this "nudity" app, whereas they can easily clear their web usage history.

Besides, as long as you register your kids' iPhones as being owned by a user under 18, they won't be able to download the app from the store.

A little parenting goes a long ways.


Stephanie   June 25th, 2009 2:21 pm ET

I'm a big fan of apple and that just puts a bad taste in my mouth. Apparently we don't have to be far without knowing we have pornography at out finger tips..


dave   June 25th, 2009 2:23 pm ET

bad move Apple way to scrape into the gutter.


David Tesirata   June 25th, 2009 2:24 pm ET

I dont see it as a problem. I say use your iPhone at the ATM or to view some ATM, whatever works.


Lorie   June 25th, 2009 2:25 pm ET

Disgusting. Porn does nothing good for anybody it only causes pain and destruction.


EN   June 25th, 2009 2:26 pm ET

The only thing pornography is good for is warping our minds with false concepts and leading to addictions that can destroy trust and self image. Seriously Apple, trashy move.


JHaiduk   June 25th, 2009 2:27 pm ET

Unbelievable! As though society is not overexposed enough, let's put it on our children's phones.


Nappanee   June 25th, 2009 2:27 pm ET

Good to know that corporations are still interested in the explotation of girls and women, to all of you that think this is fine, stay out of my pants mentality....many estimates from (25-40%) of women in the sex industry are essentially slaves....slevery is not OK, promoting that women are objects is not OK, the use of underage or woman amde to look like underage girls in compromising positions is not OK.....all this does is push further back the line as to what is an acceptable way to treat women....a sad day indeed


James   June 25th, 2009 2:28 pm ET

looks like someone showed apple the $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$

No matter how much the fan boys might want to believe otherwise apple is all about the might dollar.


Res ipsa loquitur   June 25th, 2009 2:29 pm ET

Looks like teenagers in movie theaters will get a lot more annoying...


David   June 25th, 2009 2:30 pm ET

Thanks Apple, finish driving the kids minds into the gutter, you've sold your soul to the devil, like all good capitalist do


Jeni   June 25th, 2009 2:31 pm ET

I just lost a little respect for Apple. "Allowing" = promoting in my book. If you want your company to have a good reputation stick to producing good products and drop the sleaze factor.


Ed   June 25th, 2009 2:31 pm ET

All you religous freaks that say this is immoral should check your self. Your churches are riding the porn bus just as fast as the normal person. Get off your high horse and preach to someone else.


David   June 25th, 2009 2:32 pm ET

I think it's great! In an age where kids are being forced into a double standard of having to grow up faster by society...I think it's a great way for them to innocently explore their sexuality. Parental rights groups need to take a hike and spend more time with teen violence than worry about stuff like this. It's just like when I was 14 and going into my dad's playboy collection. The only difference this time around is that its electronic and Apple is smart enough to make a profit! One downside, why just women? to be equally fair and not make women out to be objects or property, there should be an app for women to veiw guys. Hey.. it's only fair.


Larry W   June 25th, 2009 2:35 pm ET

We've seen the power of institutions who want and can control content and communication, and want to control thoughts: Iran, China, Nokia (giving technical support to Iran), FCC, and many others.

Apple Inc should not be among those entities.

Hey, Joe, you don't have to envision some mystical future where ppl get fired for having pornography at work... I'd say most places of biz already frown upon that, iPhone or not.

"Disappointed Girl", get over it. Sometimes it's not about "[quenching] their need for connection", sometimes you just wanna see a hot girl topless.


Frank S   June 25th, 2009 2:36 pm ET

Who cares? The App is nothing compared to the browser..... that is where the danger is. How many uncontrolled PC's are there in households with children??? Apple could better spend their time and energy getting off that crummy network and onto Big Red. That could be worth a million NEW customers.


William Slater   June 25th, 2009 2:37 pm ET

So, it's okay to have games on the iphone where people get shot and killed, but simple toplessness is unacceptable? Come on America, we've got it backwards. besides, toplessness is NOT pornography. Shame on you CNN for labeling it as such.


Sinverguenza   June 25th, 2009 2:38 pm ET

This should also mark the beginning of the end for Apple. SHAME on them!


eeraser   June 25th, 2009 2:38 pm ET

If you are being to be irrational and ignorant, I might as well get something out of it!


Tony   June 25th, 2009 2:40 pm ET

All of you religious people just need to bug off. What (straight) man doesn't want to look at beautiful women in any outlet he can? And don't use that "sin" crap. Women are beautiful and should be admired for their beauty. Just ask Governor Sanford of South Carolina. He's a man of God and would probably agree with that statement. Apple, keep it coming!


Ryan   June 25th, 2009 2:41 pm ET

Just wanted to clarify, even if the app has been taken down, that it was not an Apple-created app. I'm not advocating or condemning porn, just trying to say that Apple isn't the main one at fault here. We can't say "I'm never buying anything from Apple again." "Horrible move for Apple." The same thing should be said about any Apple, Microsoft Windows, or Linux computer. There are porn applications for them, but we don't condemn that company. Now, granted, there is some validity in the argument of whether Apple should have allowed it in their App Store, but third party software is not the doing of the first party company.


innocent   June 25th, 2009 2:42 pm ET

apple just mad terrible mistake. God will not be happy with him for allowing his platform to be used for immorality. this could spell doom for apple, i bet you.

Prudes never cease to amaze me.


moderate_1   June 25th, 2009 2:45 pm ET

this is the silliest thing I've ever heard, with no basis in reality. Since the iphone has a very powerful web browser, all customers, regardless of age, can still access inappropriate material.


Charles Garrett   June 25th, 2009 2:46 pm ET

It is a sad day when a prosperous company such as Apple has to stoop to the level of soft porn to generate profits. What happened to cutting edge technology that would sell itself, looks as if Apple has sold out it's commitment to introduce quality technology. When you quit looking for the innovative, and settle for addictive behavior for profits; you can be sure that it will only be a matter of time before the demise of Apple. Investors, your wake up call has just rang, sell your stock before it plummets. When I have to sell porn because I do not have the talent or technology that once made a company unique, it's time to close the portfolio.


lc in pc   June 25th, 2009 2:46 pm ET

Glad to see Apple came to their senses. The day they endorse porn as something they want to sell is the day I quit doing business, I don't care how superior their computer and phones. Get a clue, and keep sex out of business.

How low does this society have to go? Can you not find another way to view your pornography? I once had to sit on an airplane and be subject to some guy who proceeded to watch a porn movie on his computer. Can't he wait to get in the privacy of his own home or hotel?

For nick nick, censoring and selling are two different things. Apple has no control over what you download, but they don't have to sell it. I choose to think we can promote apps that make better people, not ones that tempt others to treat sexuality as cheap and cause temptation to cheat on ones partner or spouse.


Jhon   June 25th, 2009 2:48 pm ET

Why is this an issue? why do people think Apple is above this? they sell songs with explicit lyrics on itunes, and I have never heard anyone saying Safari wont let them watch porn. I think saying you wont buy Apple anymore is a bit radical, how about just saying you wont buy this app? Its not like Apple is giving it for free and including it in you next software upgrade


Rick   June 25th, 2009 2:49 pm ET

To nick nick: I agree, the bible is far more offensive than shapely naked boobies. Too bad most christians haven't taken the time to read that horrendous book.

To parents: understand that this app has no impact on your kids ability to access porn on an iPhone or an iTouch. None. There isn't a technology in the world to prevent a highly motivate kid that wants to see porn from seeing it. For a curious kid that wants to see porn... where there's a will there's a way. Parents have to take the lead on that one, not tech companies & certainly not more government rules and regulations.


Philadelphia   June 25th, 2009 2:50 pm ET

Uhhh...yuhhh...parental controls. So the most popular kid is the one with parents lacking in technical knowledge or thninking htis is cool.
My kid...no apple products for him. He can get his fuzzy looks on someone elses gizmo as they use it as a football palying keep-away from the owner. Is pornography a hate or love crime anyway??


Kevin Cowan   June 25th, 2009 2:52 pm ET

nice sensationalist new title and scaremongering tactic. This is not soft core porn, so try to keep your own generalizations and conclusions out of the discussion.


Applefad   June 25th, 2009 2:53 pm ET

Children are the deeply unfortunate victims of unintended exposure to sexually explicit material. However careless, high, addicted, and irresponsible such parents are to not harness their varieties of sexually explicit and erotic materials is a criminal matter, and now Apple of all companies wants to become a part of the vicious cycle?? 98% of all violent sex offenders incarcerated in prison have had early childhood exposure to pornography. It becomes a compulsive habit, then an addiction in the progression of the child's development into adulthood. Years of medication, sexual frustration and confusion, behavioral therapy, broken relationships, lost jobs, and physical and mental decline are the destructive results. WAY TO GO APPLE!!!


Dianne   June 25th, 2009 2:54 pm ET

How awful for parents and their children. The only recouse is to boycott Apple and not buy anything they have to offer. This is a competitive industry and there are others, just as good, that we can buy into without putting a red cent in the pocket of people who accept no responsibility for their actions and the affect it has on our citizens and their children. Shame on you.


Eric   June 25th, 2009 2:54 pm ET

It should be pull for one reason only. Not the 'porn' but because they are making a buck off of other peoples work. I've seen a few images for pay modeling websites, I know the model in this case and have alerted her that her work has been stolen.

It is my business what material I have on my phone, you nut cases that want to ban this app because children might be exposed to 'porn' need to control YOUR OWN brats and watch what they get into. Don't let your off spring control the rights to make purchases from the store. Be a parent yourself, do not expect everyone else to suffer because you're lazy! If you want to ban this you all can then PAY everyone that wants this $500 for the privilege of forcing YOUR views upon them.

Now if Apple removes this from people libraries are they (Apple) going to process a refund to the account of the purchaser?


dan   June 25th, 2009 2:55 pm ET

"Porn, and the many dollars it generates, has been a driving force for new technology for decades."

way to rip a quote from wikipedia. next time, rip a quote which isn't being openly questioned for accuracy.... to say that porn has been a driving force for new technology for decades, then use a disputed line on youtube as the source of your information is just inexcusably poor judgment.


Alexis   June 25th, 2009 2:55 pm ET

I am disappointed. I never really liked Apple, but it is still annoying. Being a sixteen year old girl, porn disgusts me. And so many parents and grandparents are oblivious to these kinds of apps. Many are computer/ technology illiterate anyway. I know that my Mom would have absolutely no idea how to set the parental controls on an iphone. I am glad that they pulled it, though.


Adam   June 25th, 2009 2:55 pm ET

It's too bad that Apple has to stoop this low to increase profit. Your products are just fine without involving illicit material.


dbacchus   June 25th, 2009 2:56 pm ET

The idiotic outrage so well represented here makes me want to BUY an iphone (I generally dislike Apple), just to support them. Topless girls!! :) Jesus Christ :) You people are sooooo pathetic.


Tim B   June 25th, 2009 2:56 pm ET

This is old news. Apple removed this from their app store a few hours ago. Way to go CNN.


g0thicicecream   June 25th, 2009 2:57 pm ET

From what I'm hearing they pulled the app b/c the number sheer number of people purchasing it was causing problems with the download lol.


Jay Olson   June 25th, 2009 2:58 pm ET

What does this mean for the iPhone?? Isn't that a ridiculous question. As far as I was aware, the iPhone has unlimited access to the web which means everything from soft-core porn to sites like xtube.com and lubetube.com that show people inserting vegetables up the rectums of midgets is displayed in full color video with audio. FOR FREE! Who the hell PAYS for porn on the internet?

Frankly porn bores me, these days. But if I was going to look at people having sex, the HELL if I'd pay for it. There's so much of it already made, it makes one ask "why do they keep making it??" Couldn't they just recycle it on a ten year rotation? Do you think anyone would notice?


Robert   June 25th, 2009 2:59 pm ET

It saddens me that Apple has decided to approve an app that makes porn accessible on the iphone. One of the reasons I am an Apple fan is because of the company's integrity. Apple is successful today because of its innovative products and great customer service. Has success blinded them with greed to the point where they need to pedal porn which leads to the degradation of society? Very sad indeed!


Troubled   June 25th, 2009 3:00 pm ET

Thanks Apple for making dating that much harder. With all of the problems people have these days find a realistic and lasting relationship (divorce rate over 50%) we now have yet another medium to confuse and distract everyone from reality. I might consider this app if it showed what the average woman looked like topless. I would expect it would not be near as pleasant to look at as this will be and will send many a young boys looking for the perfect boob with the perfect 'boobies'. Don't use the Parent Controls excuse for allowing this either. Unless every parent has the same thought on porn, controls are useless. Don't you have enough money or are YOU looking for love in all the wrong places like the poor fools who will buy this app.


A Frustrated Parent   June 25th, 2009 3:01 pm ET

Yeah, great. Now I have another electronic device that I have to set up parental controls on for my kid. Has anyone considered that monitoring inappropriate material for children is turning into a full time job for parents? And what if your kids are more tech savy than you are, then what? And what if you do everything right, but your child visits a friend whose parents aren't as diligent? But, by golly, everyone's got to have the right to their porn, and the corporations have the right to the big bucks porn shovels in for them.


Mike Spunk   June 25th, 2009 3:02 pm ET

Porn rocks! I watch porn every day, it is much better than watching what is on regular TV. It is the main reason I keep voting Democrat because only they stand up for my right to watch porn.

Apple should rename this product GuyPhone. Maybe come out with another that has alternative lifestyle porn called biPhone


will m   June 25th, 2009 3:03 pm ET

You've been able to visit full on porn sites with the iPhone since it came out. Topless women is hardly porn. Chill out people.

mcai   June 25th, 2009 3:05 pm ET

I am glad they pulled the application. I thought Apple was too classy to stoop to making money from porn, soft or not. Yeah, you can get porn via google, but to sell an application with a direct link to porn just seemed to tarnish Apple's image a bit. Until now they have made money by being super cool. Porn isn't that cool and doesn't match Apple's public persona.


RJ   June 25th, 2009 3:06 pm ET

It is ashame that the phone has become such a common medium for our children to be exposed to lewdness. I hope this app stays off the market.

As soon as your existance is no longer based upon or the result of sex, sexual content will leave all other aspects of our daily lives. If not for any other reason, because the driving force of our species will have faded and we'll have gone the way of the dinosaurs. Let's get over ourselves and just accept one of the most enjoyable aspects of our being.


gloria   June 25th, 2009 3:09 pm ET

Great just what the world needs now! Not a super prude here or religous fanatic but If you can't do without nudity on your cell phone you are pretty pathetic!
Nudity has it's place and it's not on your phone!!! Wonder who will be the victim of the first car accident from a guy looking at boobs. Hope it's the guy who sent it!


Lolu   June 25th, 2009 3:10 pm ET

I don't think I mind that they have that application approved. Its will still be up to the user, whether or not he or she downloads that application. I just hope it is well monitored and not taken to a whole other pervert-level.


charlie   June 25th, 2009 3:11 pm ET

A) FOX News called and wanted their headline back.
B) If anyone thinks this is any type of porn, soft-core or otherwise, you are so woefully lost in three hundred years ago that society would best served if you kept you uninformed opinions to yourself.


Robert W   June 25th, 2009 3:12 pm ET

"not ones that tempt others to treat sexuality as cheap and cause temptation to cheat on ones partner or spouse."

Wow. Just wow. I look at a lot of pictures of naked women, and it has never once made me act like that. Perhaps if you are weak of character will you succumb to the "temptaions", but if your relationship to your spouse is so shaky that a topless picture will force you to test its tenacity, you have bigger problems.

Oh, and to whoever used "God" and "immorality" in the same sentence, bear this in mind: it was only after Adam and Eve turned away from God that they found shame in their nudity. God did not introduce clothing to the world, man did. Furthermore, it is the pinnacle of hubris to presume to know God's stance on nudity. Shame on you for believing you can speak for your creator.


Greg   June 25th, 2009 3:12 pm ET

This is very interesting read. My final comments:

1) Parenting. It is not a dirty word. My father and mother knew what I was doing when I was growing up. I had no real privacy and I respect them for it. They were doing their jobs.

2) Censoring and Selling are a fine line "lc in pc." Preventing people from selling a product is censoring. Remember, you don't have to buy it. I don't buy romantic novels because I don't like them. I don't buy hard core porn for the same reason. Do I care if you buy or sell either? Nope.

3) To Nappanese - Remember 44.3 – 75.8% of all stats are made up, unverifiable, or out of context. I certainly think your statement is. ..".estimates are that 25-40% of women in the sex industry are essentially slaves." That statement is so vague and ambiguous it is meaningless.

4) Morality and Ethics will never be decided here. (How long has the debate raged on? 1000s of years?) While I respect a person's right to believe in God, Spirts, Magic Squirrels, etc., please stick to the case at a hand. If you want to believe people will burn in Hell for watching porn...great... remember that is their choice. Not Apple's or any one else's. The Bible works (for some - not me) because we must believe that man has a choice. Taking it away defeats the purpose of choosing God / morality / ethics / Christ / IPU / etc.


Dave Democrat   June 25th, 2009 3:13 pm ET

I voted for Obama because he stands up for your rights. Our constitution allows porn and I stand with my president. If I want to watch porn on my phone I will and no one will tell me no


Seth   June 25th, 2009 3:18 pm ET

Ok for everyone who is so concerned about the impact that this app will have on kids, I pose one simple question for you. Why does a child need an Iphone, or any cell phone to begin with? I hate how parents believe they need to give their kids cell phones at such young ages so they can keep in constant contact with them. We certainly didnt need this when I was growing up, oh because we didnt have cells phones back then.

Also the app was pulled because their image servers couldnt keep up with the demand, the app will return shortly.

You bible thumping Christians need to realize something, blaming everyone else for your childs problems will never fix them. In the end it is only the parents who can be blamed, you dont want your kid looking at porn on his phone, dont give them phones that can browse the internet. Common sense is extremely uncommon anymore, especially among the religious crowd who feel that if someone is enjoying something to much, it must be evil. Or here is an idea, stop letting an extremely old, poorly interpreted book dictate how you live your life, but oh no, that would require free thought! Times are and have been changing, you can either adapt or you can leave, its just that simple.


Jake   June 25th, 2009 3:19 pm ET

Hasn't the religious right ruined enough of our country? 8 years of Bush... Now they want my porn too?


SDunc   June 25th, 2009 3:19 pm ET

Does it really matter how we feel? Apparently it doesn't because there's more porn available now than ever. It will take legislation to stop it. Come to think of it, why not make all porn illegal? Yeah, that's it!! Porn is an oozing scab on the face of humanity. It's time to stop the exploitation of women and children and say that pornography in any form is unacceptable.


Scott   June 25th, 2009 3:20 pm ET

I think CNN is very bored and jumped the gun to put out entertaining news, instead of worthy information and now had to recant what they originally posted. But regarding the subject of nudity and porn..We as Americans live in a very sexually repressed country.. This would be a normal day out in Europe.


Bob   June 25th, 2009 3:20 pm ET

Why oh why does anyone care about this? Is this the most you people have to worry about in your lives? It's a friggin mobile phone application, for God's sake.

I am so utterly sick of the overhyped and over-inflated importance of technology. I'm shocked this isn't listed as "Breaking News" on CNN.


Bubba   June 25th, 2009 3:22 pm ET

Apple? Sorry, not a fanboy. I'm sure someone cares passionately, though . . .


CC   June 25th, 2009 3:22 pm ET

I will NOT buy any more Apple products. Some people making comments on here need to go find a girlfriend in real life. How pathetic are you to have go look at nude photos on your phone!


MJK   June 25th, 2009 3:23 pm ET

Ok, so we all panic about this app being pulled? There was 100's available before on jail broken I-phones lol

What we need an app that can really rock the socks off all the consumers so they can use their phones in a proper way.


musheded   June 25th, 2009 3:23 pm ET

First let me say if this was an app with nude pictures of men there would be outrage.

Now that I have that out of my system I'm wondering why Apple so quickly approved this app, but they can approve one of the two GREAT third party video recording apps (you know the ones where you have to jailbreak your iPhone) that have been out there for YEARS. Wait, then someone might not buy one of their new iPhone 3G S's just to get video...yes I know millions of people have but I really don't want to jailbreak my original iPhone 3G and I don't have the money to buy one of the 'new' ones.

You listening Apple? Approve a video recording app for the original iPhone 3G.


Karen   June 25th, 2009 3:27 pm ET

There's no shortage of porn online, so Apple might as well make some money on some soft-core ware. Perhaps this signals a "buy" for AAPL.


g0thicicecream   June 25th, 2009 3:29 pm ET

You know, there wouldn't be this social stigma on nudity and sexuality if all you prudes would just stop breeding, we don't need any more self-effacing prudes who feel the need to stick their nose in everyone's business running around.

Might as well take all those "great works of art" off museum walls if you're afraid of nudity.

Do us a favor and get sterilized please so the rest of us can enjoy the world we live in :)


Crickett   June 25th, 2009 3:30 pm ET

Ick! Bad move Apple. If you want to see a nude woman, earn the privilege. They should call the company "CrApple."


mary   June 25th, 2009 3:32 pm ET

I will no longer allow my children to have an I Phone - nor do I want one. We as a nation certainly are going down the tubes. We wonder why women are molested - because we are stupid as a society and advocate anything goes.
Shame on Apple !


Jonathan   June 25th, 2009 3:33 pm ET

Evidence of American society's gradual progression to wider accessibility of photos and actions that exploit women and ruin lives. Why should we be suprised that Apple wants to make a quick buck off of perversion? So many other mainstream outlets have been there for years.


Albert   June 25th, 2009 3:34 pm ET

Are you people all still this prudish and uptight. The way I see it is bring on the porn.


Brett   June 25th, 2009 3:34 pm ET

First off, topless photos ARE NOT PORN. Secondly, porn is 100% legal. This article was so slanted it hurt.


rico   June 25th, 2009 3:35 pm ET

please watch your terms. nudity does not equal pornography.

as for the big question, is it okay to allow downloading of nude pic based apps, or the inevitable hardcore pic based apps? yes, it is. since you need an itunes account which requires a credit card to set it up, and a password everytime you download, then it should be fine. if someone under 17 has that, they shouldn't. that's the bigger questions.


J E   June 25th, 2009 3:36 pm ET

If you were already able to see porn on websites, there really isn't much difference, its just accessible in another way on your iphone.... I still think it's disgusting, though.


And?   June 25th, 2009 3:36 pm ET

So what? If you want to pay more for what is free anyway, have at it I guess.


rico   June 25th, 2009 3:38 pm ET

please watch your terms. nudity does not equal pornography.

as for the big question, is it okay to allow downloading of nude pic based apps, or the inevitable hardcore pic based apps? yes, it is. since you need an itunes account which requires a credit card to set it up, and a password everytime you download, then it should be fine. if someone under 17 has that, they shouldn't. that's the bigger questions.

besides, as of today, the app has already been pulled from the store due to overload on the developer's image server.


Albert   June 25th, 2009 3:39 pm ET

The destruction of lives? Oh please

Porn, soft or otherwise, was available before . . by using the internet browser.

I've never purchased an Apple product before in my life. I may go out and purchase one just out of spite to the uptight individuals.


Albert   June 25th, 2009 3:40 pm ET

Good they didn't actually take it down.


Rob   June 25th, 2009 3:40 pm ET

I feel that it is a horrible decision on the part of Apple and iTunes execs. to allow this type of material to be downloadable.


rico   June 25th, 2009 3:42 pm ET

apple didn't pull the app, the developer did. evidently, his image server couldn't handle the overload!


appleeye   June 25th, 2009 3:43 pm ET

All you people knocking Apple should be congratulating them. Apple didn't approve any porn until they were able to provide proper parental controls on the iphone. They also provide free parental controls on their Macs, making it fairly simple for a parent to control their child's behavior.

That said, the iphone like all new generation smart phones have web browsers like PCs with access to the Internet and super loads of porn.

Honestly if you want to protect your child be an informed parent, and stop blaming companies like Apple that go out of their way to ensure parents have the tools to decide if something is appropriate or not.


rose   June 25th, 2009 3:44 pm ET

I'm interested to see how the iphone's new video ability affects this issue.


tyhan   June 25th, 2009 3:45 pm ET

Honestly its ridiculous how many people cry out at this being some atrocity corrupting the world. You can access the internet on any iPhone, with or without this app, and on any iPhone you can open safari and search 'naked women'. If you think anyone might use this app to be corrupted, you should be sure that they have already used our good friend google.

Latest news is the app was pulled cause it was overflowing servers because of its popularity, welcome to the world.

It's terrible. Our culture is creating an atmosphere when young boys turn into sex-crazed adults incapable of being good husbands, role models, and definitely not good fathers.


Steve R   June 25th, 2009 3:51 pm ET

Just like pay per view porn and other forms of media, this venture gives us the choice not to use it. the iphone has features that allow parents to block the content. Regardless of your religious beliefs or stance on porn, it is irrelevant. this is a Constitutional issue. it is currently possible to open a browser on iphone and look at all the porn you want. People who want to limit choices to their standards do not understand freedom of speech. If you don't want it don't get it, and if you can't trust your kids nor limit their viewing using the available safeguards then you are the problem. Stop making the world a smaller less free place


CloudMan   June 25th, 2009 3:51 pm ET

If Apple were to host this app in a cloud computing environment such as from Amazon or Microsoft, the number of servers needed to service this app would be been automatically scaled to meet the high demand and everyone would be able to get this HOT new app.


Rob   June 25th, 2009 3:51 pm ET

Oh give me a break people. This is porn. Everyone looks at it at one point or another. And how do you consider this bad for women?? Us men look at these porn stars as godesses!! You all need to chill out and focus on the fact that kids are going out and having sex at 13 and 14 years old these days. Give them porn and maybe they won't need that experience until later!!! Everyone has needs and everyone gets horny!

Porn destroys lives. Yes, legal adults have the right to make their own choices, but there are so many people who are hurt by this! Why encourage such destruction. Shame on Apple. Does making one more dollar mean that much to you?


Boo Radley   June 25th, 2009 3:54 pm ET

Don't go there Apple.


Brett   June 25th, 2009 3:54 pm ET

Get your morality out of my face and dont buy it if you dont like it. If you're one of those parents who want everyone else to do your parenting for you then dont have children. Besides...you dont need an app to get porn on your iphone. I check out deliciousness all the time on safari, why can't the developers make a buck on this if people are willing to pay? We're so overwhelmed with politically correctness and making sure nobody's feelings get hurt it makes me sick. We are doomed as a nation when adults cant get access to adult content because adult parents want the world to police what their kids see instead of just being parents and taking steps to restrict what their kids have access to. If you're offended by Dave Letterman, change the channel, if you dont like what Don Imus says, change the channel, if you dont like what's on an iPhone app, dont buy it.


Aaron Seattle   June 25th, 2009 3:55 pm ET

I love this! Now they just to have that for men and everything will be fine. Personally I think we need more nudity rather than less in this country, we are constantly repressing our desires due to archaic belief structures that try to dictate morals in our everyday life which are completely baseless. A little nudity is not a bad thing, it is a natural thing and should be celebrated and if made into an iPhone app, well then KUDOS to Apple for doing it first and pioneering the way for a less puritanical society!


JJ   June 25th, 2009 3:56 pm ET

Rotten Apple, will ruin the whole bunch.


free thinker   June 25th, 2009 3:57 pm ET

if you don't like the picture, change the channel!

with all the free hardcore stuff on the web that is sometimes surfed upon when you're looking for something totally innocent i don't see the big deal here.

i think we Americans need to take a lesson from the Europeans and de-mystify sex already. once all the hoopla is gone, people will go back to whatever they were doing.


Adam   June 25th, 2009 3:59 pm ET

Aren't we overreacting just a little? It's pictures of women. Big deal. You have to be an adult to buy the phone and a plan, anyway.

We give condoms to our 13 year old kids and teach them safe sex in public schooling, but it's inappropriate for us to look at topless women. Ooookay.


Merrill   June 25th, 2009 4:00 pm ET

The phone has parental controls. if you are going to buy your son or daughter a iPhone (not that they have any use for it once so ever), set the controls, and dont pick a password like 1234. Come on people, if you are going to buy your kid a $800 phone/computer, then you should know whats out there on it. It does have the internet you dont need a app.


david   June 25th, 2009 4:01 pm ET

simply put, hooray for boobies!!


PiercedPsycho   June 25th, 2009 4:02 pm ET

Apple, you are so sexist and I'm HIGHLY offended. I am embarassed that you so obviously espouse inequal treatment of the sexes on this planet (sorry, hermaphrodites).

I demand a nude guy app, to compliment the nude/topless woman app!


Marc   June 25th, 2009 4:04 pm ET

I agree that that this app has tarnished Apple's reputation. I hope they (Apple) keeps the app off the app-store. There are already too many ways to access pornographic materials without making it easy AND portable. If iPhone users want to see porn on their phones let them use the built-in web browser. There's no good reason to make a dedicated app for it.


Jack   June 25th, 2009 4:06 pm ET

Semi good news, the app might come back online soon.

Porn doesn't destroy lives, just like guns don't kill people, stupid people with guns do. Plus this isn't even porn.

Update: Interesting - the dev's site now says that Hottest Girls has been "pulled" because their servers were "reaching their limits" and that the app will be back up soon, naughty pictures intact. We're guessing that means their image servers are cracking under the strain,


LC   June 25th, 2009 4:07 pm ET

First off, the religious right has got to get off their collective pedestals and look at themselves in the mirror. Nudity isn't evil, and sex isn't a sin. Perhaps you could explain how you were even born in the first place?

Second, I'm betting the app got pulled because the app's creators were plagiarizing photos from other websites. They probably got a cease and desist from one of the photos owners and are likely on the verge of being sued into oblivion.


Scott   June 25th, 2009 4:10 pm ET

Oh for Pete's sake. What's the big deal? There have been pictures of "naked" ladies since there were cameras. Pencil and paper, paintings, sculptures and cave men probably scratched pictures in the dirt of some hairy cave woman he saw.

This is supposed to be a free country. I choose not to buy the app, but have no problem with those who do purchase the app.

Parents, do your job and set the parental controls on the phone and for those who now won't buy Apple, get over it. There are a whole lot worse things going on in this world to use your worry beads about.


Robin Ray   June 25th, 2009 4:10 pm ET

ARE YOU KIDDING ME HOW SICK IS THIS.. NOT EVERYONE IN THE WORLD LIKES PORN SOFT OR NOT. DISGUSTING APPLE! REALLY THIS SHOULD NOT BE ALLOWED FREE SPEECH OR NOT THIS WILL ONLY PRMOTE MORE VIOLENCE TOWARDS CHILDREN AND WOMEN..I WON'T BE GETTING AN IPHONE NOW UNTIL THIS APP. IS REMOVED.


Tedd   June 25th, 2009 4:12 pm ET

Wow! People are already having accidents texting while driving, how many accidents is this app. going to be blamed for before it is pulled? Dumb s*@#s, Let us add more immorality to our society. It's all about entertainment "NO MORALS'. It is hard enough to teach people how to respect others when you have things like this. As I see it, it is the hard up people who view things like this, can't have what they can't get! Not happy with what they have. One more reason for why this country is going to hell in a handbasket!!!


Brian   June 25th, 2009 4:12 pm ET

Shame on Apple!!


butt-boy   June 25th, 2009 4:12 pm ET

EVERY smart-phone on the market today is capable of accessing real pornography. Comments that people are "upset" with Apple and won't buy their product are absurd. I suggest those people throw out their televisions and home computers too.


Jeff   June 25th, 2009 4:15 pm ET

Until they have the equivalent of VirtuaGirl (and VirtuaGuy), this will be a non-event.


Cnels   June 25th, 2009 4:17 pm ET

The sin of lust, Paul? Are you joking? This is America, don't let your closed minded religious beliefs affect the freedoms that the rest of us are given. I'm not a big porn guy myself, but I'm not about to limit what other people can do if they choose.


TimW   June 25th, 2009 4:18 pm ET

1. I was unaware that people were having sex in the application, giving it the classification of "porn."
2. People can't expect companies to do the parenting for them. Watch your kids and they'll be fine.
3. The web browser will show stuff 100x worse than this.
4. What are (up to) 16-year-old kids doing with an iPhone anyway? It's a smartphone. Get them an iPod and a Razr.
5. Don't act like Apple created this application and call them "evil."
6. If they allow these kinds of applications, they need to have a setting in iTunes that will hide adult oriented programs in the App Store.


Mongo the Magnificant   June 25th, 2009 4:18 pm ET

If the photograph is indicative of "soft porn" I say, "Where's the beef?" A young lady in a skimpy night gown is hardly pornographic or even sexy for that matter. It's all a state of mind. I support Apple's move 100%. We need to get over our hang ups about sex and attractive women and men. This is, after all, the 21st Century, isn't it?


Reid   June 25th, 2009 4:18 pm ET

Enough is Enough. When are we going to put a STOP to this in America? Enough enticing our young people with smutty pictures and you know as well as I do, even with a 17+ advisory they are going to get it and get in to this junk. When are we American's going to tell corporate America NO! Let's stop making and lowering ourselves to being SEX OBJECTS and judging people by their outter earthly vehicles. It's what is in the head and heart that matters and that is all there should be. Contact APPLE and say to them SHAME ON THEM!


commonsense   June 25th, 2009 4:19 pm ET

to all you puritan religeous fools, porn isnt going to send you to hell, if your god is going to send you to hell for seeing someone naked...do you really even want to go to heaven with that god? i sure wouldn't.


Mac Sucks   June 25th, 2009 4:19 pm ET

And again lets give it up for Apple that will do ANYTHING for more money.


Hellen   June 25th, 2009 4:21 pm ET

Another great reason for me to keep the apple applications locked as it has been since i purchased the phone for my family.


J   June 25th, 2009 4:22 pm ET

I think it is funny how people use the excuse, " wake up its 2009, so it is ok to make porn available to everybody and even on their phone. You people to help our next generation and these kids. " It just keeps getting worse and worse and everyone just makes excuses. People wonder why there are so many predators and rapist. IT STARTS WITH THIS PEOPLE!


just me   June 25th, 2009 4:23 pm ET

Just remember, God knows everything you do in secret. There will be a judgement day.

“Can anyone hide in secret places so that I cannot see him?" declares the LORD. "Do not I fill heaven and earth?" declares the LORD.”- Jeremiah 23:24


Hoshiko   June 25th, 2009 4:27 pm ET

I have an expensive mac sitting on my desk at home – I will rid myself of this computer and buy a PC... I will not support a company that gives into a industry that exploits women and children. How dare you as a company give access to soft porn to boys who's hormones are all ready out of control and all the bad things that go along with this... Apple will no longer be a choice for me...


Saddened   June 25th, 2009 4:27 pm ET

And the downward spiral continues pulling all of us into a pit of mire and muck where we are too centered on self to even realize we're playing in the mud.


AndrewO   June 25th, 2009 4:27 pm ET

Come on folks, get a clue!
What difference would it make whether this app existed or not?
With the browsers in modern phones you can link to any number of porn (both hard- and soft-core) web sites and browse all all day long. You don't need a specific app for that, and to say you'll "never buy anything Apple again' because of this is just ridiculous in the extreme.


JT   June 25th, 2009 4:29 pm ET

Yay! I like porn!


Robert Stevenson   June 25th, 2009 4:32 pm ET

Please Apple – Don't join the sleaze that pollutes TV, Movies, Media, Internet. Stand for something moral and important.

Let the other guys find ways to stoke the passions of those who are caught in the dependence on pornography.

Show a little extra class in the midst of a media that has lost its way and the jerk that pant for more porn.

Do the right thing!


Paul   June 25th, 2009 4:32 pm ET

I suspect some of you are not old enough to remember a world where this sort of thing would be unthinkable. Now, not only is it thinkable, it's accessable and legal.

Are things any better?

Look at the corruption, scandal and broken lives that occur in this world. Things and actions unthinkable a generation ago.

The difference? We haven't been given more freedom, we have abused license. Society has fallen into the trap that more license equals freedom. Instead abuse of license leads to slavery.

And we wonder why things seem so bad today.

We are our brother's keeper. Like it or not we do have a responsibility to help fellow people not fall into traps of vice and sin. Those with the grace to not be victims of these vices stand up and help those who have fallen into the mud and cannot help themselves.


John   June 25th, 2009 4:34 pm ET

Oh my, it's only a matter of time before the holier than thou nut-cases go after Apple on this one. And you know who I'm talking about!!!


Bryan   June 25th, 2009 4:34 pm ET

Come on, Apple, was this app really porn? I guess we can't have a SportsIllustrated (TM) Swimsuit Issue app either. And that style.com app and Channel app that sometimes show extra sheer fashions, Apple better pull those, too.

Sure I understand the author's need to draw attention to his article by throwing the "P" word around, no way it would be published if he had not labled the application "soft porn."

Still you have to wonder why he wrote it. I'm betting it's a "Sun Also Rises" issue, without the war injury.

See what happens when they let you print anything.


KT   June 25th, 2009 4:35 pm ET

Sure Porn is legal. But come on really? Give someone an excuse to be even more lazy? And hey what about those of us that are interested in men?


Sour Apple   June 25th, 2009 4:35 pm ET

This leaves a bad taste in my mouth!


Leroy   June 25th, 2009 4:39 pm ET

I'm just waiting for the first guy who kills himself surfing porn while driving.


no go   June 25th, 2009 4:42 pm ET

And to think I was due to buy an IPhone in July. Not now. I don't support companies that knowingly contribute to smut. Biggest phone users? Kids! parental controls? What a laugh! kids can get around electronics better than any parent could dream of. I doubt very very much that our forefathers would have considered this to be "freedom of speech". In their day, you'd be in stocks in the town square for a lot less.


Astro   June 25th, 2009 4:44 pm ET

What puritans we have here. Europeans are laughing at us (as usual). Its nudity, not pornography, a HUGE difference.

You cant have it both ways.. people say they dont want corporate or government intrusion in their lives, then demand corporate intrusion in their lives.
Parents control your kids and what they watch. Why does your 13 yo need an iPhone for in the first place? Get em a Jitterbug!

As others said, the same people who are against Apple must be against Netflix, Blockbuster, Family Video, Comcast Cable, Whoever made your dvd player etc. Do you realize Apple has been selling "dirty" versions of albums for years now. Where was the boycott then?

Hypocrites


eric   June 25th, 2009 4:45 pm ET

Christ is coming back. He said if you even look at a woman with lust in your mind you have already committed adultery.!!! I didn't say it, he did!


Frances   June 25th, 2009 4:45 pm ET

Anything for a buck, eh? Well, I am disappointed in Apple...


Chris   June 25th, 2009 4:46 pm ET

Wow. So many idiots.

The iphone HAS internet. Therefor it already HAS porn. Not only that, but in far larger quantities than any "app" will allow. Jeez. Cry more for a machine having access to porn that has had access to porn since it was released.


Dale   June 25th, 2009 4:47 pm ET

Hey you could be like Ned Flanders and buy all the porn apps you can buy and then have them all blacked out like he does with his cable service.


Adam   June 25th, 2009 4:48 pm ET

I hate to break this to you, but as someone who has owned the iPhone for awhile, there is an app called beautymeter which Ihave had since I got the phone that shows pictures of people sent in to be judged, and most of them are totally naked and in very "private" scenarios...so this is NOT the first app to show nudity.


Yorick   June 25th, 2009 4:52 pm ET

I would agree with the fact that it's a personal computer, and so it's really up to the user on how they want to use it, if a kid, or anyone wants it enough, they WILL be able to get to it. At the same time, I also agree that it's saddening to see that Apple would lower itself to sanctioning porn apps, it's about the fact that they would do it, given the choice, rather than when they can't really choose (as with the internet, with which they don't really have much control)/


Kinda Mad   June 25th, 2009 4:52 pm ET

Hey come on now! Makes me want 2 trash my iphone, can't find enough porn out there already?!?! NO respect 4 Apple anymore, let down BIG time! Trash it or lots will trash you.


Randy   June 25th, 2009 4:53 pm ET

All you prude, pathetic, sheltered, American anti-porn crusading hypocrites make me sick. We need more of these applications.


WAKE UP   June 25th, 2009 4:54 pm ET

I read all of these many comments, and can't help but wonder how technologically innept all you idiots posting are?!?! Do you not realize that any phone, regardless of brand, or service provider, gives you complete access to the internet, and in turn, every kind of porn out there, So for you parents buying your child a blackberry or Palm or Sony phone gives your child equal access to porn on the internet. This is simply an application showing tasteful topless photos, not hardcore pornography. Get your technology knowledge right before you start spouting off like an misinformed idiot.


JJ   June 25th, 2009 4:58 pm ET

Are you people serious? It's an app for crying out loud. Don't like it? Don't download it. And if you really think little Johnny doesn't look at harder stuff on the internet (which he can access through the iPhone), then you are woefully naive. Perhaps you should spend more time with your kids and less time trying to out prude everybody else.

Why stop at boycotting Apple? Let's boycott ALL cell phone companies! You can view nudity, porn, softcore, 'art', etc. on any cell phone with internet ability, and there are a lot of models out there. If you're going to boycott and blast one company, be fare and blast all of them. Oh, and cancel your internet service, because you can access porn through your computer at home, you know.


mattkiiiirk   June 25th, 2009 4:58 pm ET

To all the parents saying things like:

"Oh well I was GOING to buy an iPhone for my 11-year-old but now that this catastrophe has occurred I will never even consider it!"

Maybe you should try a little something called RAISING YOUR CHILDREN rather than buying them an iPhone in the first place. You're worried that they are being raised in this sex/drug ridden world, and yet you're going to buy them an iPhone when they're 11!? If they aren't old enough for you to have grounded positive moral beliefs in them then they aren't old enough to even go on the internet. Let alone on a mobile device.


Rob Armstrong   June 25th, 2009 5:00 pm ET

The referenced Wikipedia article was less than conclusive in its claims for porn's spurring influence on innovative technology.

Drawing such a conclusion is presumptuous at best.


Eric   June 25th, 2009 5:02 pm ET

Ok I'm ready to buy and iphone now!!


Dave   June 25th, 2009 5:04 pm ET

So much for the iTunes App Store "Top Selling Apps" list. Now it will simply be the "Top Selling Boob Apps," as those will definitely be the top sellers.


MO   June 25th, 2009 5:04 pm ET

It's not like you couldn't access nudity or porn to begin with. The iPhone does have internet access.


Shawn   June 25th, 2009 5:05 pm ET

I agree with the first post by Richard. We need a man app. Usually it's the people that are totally OUTRAGED by porn who end up being busted for some moral "indiscretion". Just look at the good Governor of South Carolina. Hmmmmm... Anyway, porn has been around forever and it will always be, so build a bridge and get over it. We live in the 21st century people. Heck, if anything it helps the economy!


K   June 25th, 2009 5:05 pm ET

Just another reason not to ever invest in the iphone or ipod... I think with this new news, I will even stop using itunes. This is yet another reason my children will never be exposed to the outrageous explosion of technology.


tanis38   June 25th, 2009 5:08 pm ET

I must have missed the memo that said that the iPhone is officially the "kid's phone". I wonder what percentage of iPhone owners/users are actually under 18. I bet it is a pretty small percentage.

Eitherway, all these complaints are silly. The iPhone has given your "children" extremely easy access to real pornography since it was released. It is called "Safari". And believe me, it contains far worse than a few topless pictures of models.

Apple does not have to protect your children from pornography. You do. A little parenting goes a long way.

As a consumer (and an adult), I do not want a corporation telling me what is appropriate or not. I can decide that for myself.


soul   June 25th, 2009 5:10 pm ET

Great! Now we have to worry about perverts playing with themselves in their cars while looking at porn on their phones.


Mary   June 25th, 2009 5:12 pm ET

Society wonders why girls and women are treated as objects. Used and abused. What you put in the mind comes out in actions.


Johnny   June 25th, 2009 5:14 pm ET

Everyone who objects: Please send along your iPhone's and Touch's so I can line them up with the "questionable" app running and I can properly perform a satanic human sacrifice. Seriously, grow up...


Alex   June 25th, 2009 5:14 pm ET

These responses are laughable.
1. If you have kids be a responsible parent and lock your device just like you should your liquor cabinet
2. If your kid has an iphone, maybe you shouldn't give them everything they ask for.
3. If you don't like porn don't download the app.
4. How bad the world has gotten because of smut like this? Does anyone here actually read history books, our collective past is full of smut much worse than what's going on here especially in the catholic church.


k   June 25th, 2009 5:14 pm ET

Seriously? Ok. Well, there's bigger fish to fry here. I have a set of boobies that I can look down at any time of the day, any day of the week. Whee for me.

The only laughable thing about this is the losers that would actually pay $1.99 for this. That would be a total deal breaker for me – a guy with a tittie app on his iPhone. Should make the rest of ya leery about going into the bathroom at lunch hour.

Woo....


Scott   June 25th, 2009 5:17 pm ET

Oh get a life! Sexual images like that are not even close to porn you idiot. Go spend some money on a plane ticket and see how the rest of the world views sex. America is so darn boring.


Sean   June 25th, 2009 5:19 pm ET

Users with jailbroken Iphones have had access to apps not sanctioned by Apple for quite some time now. Some of the popular applications have been ones that contain pornography. Unfortunately for Apple they do not make any money off of apps that are downloaded through 3rd party "imitation app stores," but company obviously realized the potential that existed for profit. If the people are already getting these apps, why wouldn't Apple go ahead and sanction the activity so that they can make a profit. As a company responsible to share-holders their one true obligation is to generate profit and survive as a business.

Morality is such a subjective term also. Just because one person finds something 'immoral' does not mean the other 4 billion people on Earth feel the same way.


Sarah   June 25th, 2009 5:19 pm ET

You people who say porn doesn't exploit women because no woman is forced to do it are missing the point. Porn exploits ALL women because it promotes a degrading, objectifying view of the female body. Guess what guys, I'm a person, not a set of breasts and long hair. As long as porn is viewed as "harmless" by the masses, it will be drilled into everyone's mind that there is nothing wrong with looking at any woman as a piece of eye candy, or worse, an item for sexual gratification.


McFly   June 25th, 2009 5:19 pm ET

FINALLY! A reason to buy the iPhone!!


jubjub   June 25th, 2009 5:23 pm ET

maybe they had the intentions of yanking after only a few hours to begin with. personally, ive seen so much porn that its just as natural to me as eating sandwiches so whatever, u dig


David   June 25th, 2009 5:24 pm ET

Porn is already reachable via the Internet on the iPhone. Apple just want's their 30% cut. It's only business. Porn is a $13 billion industry and it's distributed nationwide, including the Bible belt. It should do well for Apple's stock.


Henri from Dallas   June 25th, 2009 5:27 pm ET

Wow. All this technology and the only thing we can do with it is increase the level of porn out there. What a waste!


Sue   June 25th, 2009 5:31 pm ET

I switched to AT & T in January solely to get the Iphone. It has turned out to be a phenomenal gadget. I liked it so much I turned around and bought one for my brother, who also loves his. I don't doubt he will be happy about this. I am a very liberal thinker, am sexually aware, and really abide by the motto, "live and let live." But for some reason this just bothers me. I don't want it to, but it does.


Melissa   June 25th, 2009 5:33 pm ET

Lame!
Cmon' people. What is happening to the use of the phone for its main purpose? Use it for productivity!! I am a little ashamed of Apple for allowing this. It's embarrassing.


Pete   June 25th, 2009 5:33 pm ET

25% of our teenage girls between of the ages of 12-19 carry a STD.

Teen pregnancy is at an all time high.

4,000 Abortions are performed each day in this nation.

50% Divorce Rate

Thank you APPLE for joining the ranks with the porn industry to further contribute to the moral rot within this nation. I for one will never buy another product through your organization again.


sophie   June 25th, 2009 5:40 pm ET

Well Well another thing going to be ruined....


Seabastien Flyte   June 25th, 2009 5:40 pm ET

@Janice It's to do with sales, lets face it more guys want apps with naked women than the otherway around


Yumil   June 25th, 2009 5:41 pm ET

Sexy time.... it's niiice!


Nick   June 25th, 2009 5:42 pm ET

I can't believe some of the things I'm reading in these comments. I'm holding back from mentioning any names, but some of you are incredibly ignorant. First of all, the decision to allow nudity is because of the new Parental Controls they have enabled in the App Store. If you are worried about your child being able to view adult material, you should know that it would be easier for them to use the Internet Browser instead.

I really don't see what the fuss is about, except that many of you just like complaining about nothing. Any phone with a screen and internet has the ability to view porn. Case closed.


Jim G   June 25th, 2009 5:46 pm ET

Porn apps but still no MMS....Granted that's more AT&T's doing but still.


dustin   June 25th, 2009 5:47 pm ET

the iphone has always been able to access porn, why not actually let apple make money off of it?


Frank   June 25th, 2009 5:49 pm ET

Just more proof that this world is fallen and that without a savior everyone is going to Hell for there sinful ways. Like apple wasn't already selling the iphone like hotcakes. Do they really need more money.


Stoo   June 25th, 2009 5:54 pm ET

If women gave us what we wanted/needed... we wouldn't have mobile porn! :)


Samuel Cole   June 25th, 2009 5:55 pm ET

This is crazy. Porn is not the issue the issue is the fact that there are groups that want to control what you see and hear. Ok its porn and? You can go to many sites and download porn for free without using your i phone to do so. In Europe there are commercials that are shown on TV and played on the radio or in print that would be seen as porn here in the US and the people there look at it in retrospect and know that morals are how you carry yourself not what you hear or see. The same people that complain about porn are the same people who keep a stash of it in their closet or on their computer. I don't mind porn what i do mind is the morals police sitting in some office trying to tell me what i should look at or what i should listen to. Porn will not rot my brain, nor will it make me break the law. Get over it and talk about issues that people really care about like keeping Americans employed, in their homes, and providing some type of health care


Jeff   June 25th, 2009 5:59 pm ET

Just another reasonj to jailbreak your phone.


Nathan   June 25th, 2009 5:59 pm ET

If Apple has half a brain they won't make explicit porn dedicated apps available through the App Store. In business it is important to pick your partners as they will affect your services and your public image. Porn is readily available for free on their devices over the internet. Why risk a degradation of their carefully built image over a few extra dollars from stupid people who pay for stuff they can get for free?


JeffNY   June 25th, 2009 6:01 pm ET

Just another reason to jailbreak your phone or IPOD touch.


Chip   June 25th, 2009 6:13 pm ET

Good job Apple. This is not needed on the iPhone and since it is your store you have the right to control what you sell. For all those dismissing technology, don't kill the messenger. It is the people put this stuff out that is the problem. The iPhone is an incredible piece of technology that has far more good than bad in it.


Ben   June 25th, 2009 6:14 pm ET

This is the most ridiculous thing I've ever heard. Who cares if someone has a porn application on their Iphone. You don't have to download it if you don't want to. Plus, whoever thinks they can trust their teenagers on the Internet without any type of filter is oblivious. Whether or not your child looks at pornography or posts inappropriate things on the web is part the parents fault for not teaching right or wrongs. Please folks, lets start instilling common sense into our children!


rebecca   June 25th, 2009 6:21 pm ET

wow. thank goodness. I was just disgusted this morning reading the "great news" about yet more pornography readily available at our fingertips. Its just gross. Like the world needs any more, and like it would be anything to celebrate.


Carmen San Carlos   June 25th, 2009 6:25 pm ET

Unecessary and if they do, no iPhone for me...or more Apple products.


Keith   June 25th, 2009 6:46 pm ET

Thankfully, Steve Jobs got out of hospital in time and said " Wait a minute Apple pervs, your're fired.Not on my watch"


Bob   June 25th, 2009 6:46 pm ET

I find it ironic that many of the same people that complain about pornography or other suggestive material are the same ones that will allow their kids to play such games as Assassins Creed, Grand Theft Auto and Halo.

If the consumer is of legal age, who cares what is installed on their phones? It is not Apples job (or Steve's for that matter) to censor what material is available to the consumer.


SternFan   June 25th, 2009 6:48 pm ET

It is only a matter of time until Apple approves porn.

The best app available for the iPhone is "HeyNow". Well worth the 99 cents. You can check it out by searching HeyNow on iTunes or on the App Store.


Nonnus   June 25th, 2009 7:07 pm ET

hello all,

i am an iphone developer and it is nice to see cnn taking notice of apple app review process, although not so much regarding soft core or the huge flow of xxx induced apps that are already changing a little the app store landscape

i think this is also due to the lousy management that seems to be taking care of app reviews, that has been responsible for a serious decrease on developers motivation to create really inspired apps, due to their incoherence and lack of communication

as an example the last app i developed out of 12 (including the first midi controlers and downloader for the iphone) was a karaoke player with built in access to almost 4000 tracks,
iKaraoke,
it was sent to app store approval on the 12 march after some time of hard work to put it together,
after almost 3 months of silent waiting it was rejected due to questionable reasons like the reviewer considering the app is replicating ipod app (though it plays unsupported files and displays lyrics in real time), he even suggested that as the app managed its own files it would be too confusing for users...

more details at http://www.ikaraokeapp.com/node/19

they dont even bother reply to any question i make about it so as you can understand it easily gets hard for developers to consider anything else than simple and easy apps instead of working seriously to create something truly new and unique,
and i am not alone,
and the app store is starting to show

abraços

nonnus


Steve   June 25th, 2009 7:14 pm ET

I'm glad Apple decided to show some backbone and not officially endorse this stuff. I'm glad there are still some companies who are not willing to not take more money for porn.


James Smith João Pessoa, Brazil   June 25th, 2009 7:17 pm ET

What a pointless, ridiculous argument. All the porn anyone can ant was already available via the web browser. Why Apple even bothered is a mystery to me. I would never buy a special app to give me what I can get for free. But there ARE a lot of stupid people. Not all of them are religious nuts, either.


Edwin   June 25th, 2009 7:17 pm ET

This is blasphemous AND sacreligous!! How dare the sinners at Apple even consider this abomination of an app!

They WILL face the wrath of the almighty creator when all is said and done! As an iPhone user I am outraged! We moral christians should rally together and boycott this heathen company. Together we can bring down the beast!

Now if you'll excuse me I have to finish downloading this app. The man holding the gun to my head won't leave until I do.

/Sarcasm

Serously, folks. Get a life. It's an app. Don't like it don't download it.


G   June 25th, 2009 7:33 pm ET

Did you people who are talking about boycotting Apple products read the article? "Apple will not distribute applications that contain inappropriate content, such as pornography. The developer of this application added inappropriate content directly from their server after the application had been approved and distributed, and after the developer had subsequently been asked to remove some offensive content. This was a direct violation of the terms of the iPhone Developer Program. The application is no longer available on the App Store." They pulled the app!


hotdish   June 25th, 2009 7:34 pm ET

i already had the app and can confirm – women have boobs.

get over it.


Isaac   June 25th, 2009 8:06 pm ET

I think the only reason Apple has rejected this app is because it is getting media coverage. Their Safari browser gives way to much more pornography than the App Store ever will.


mjr17   June 25th, 2009 8:34 pm ET

THANK YOU, APPLE!

And please uphold this policy. When I heard the report that pornography would be an application on the iPhone, I immediately decided that I would not purchase a new iPhone or any other Apple products. I do not want to do business with a company that opening supports and promotes the exploitation of women.


Dearborn   June 25th, 2009 10:22 pm ET

False alarm? This is why bloggers and i'reporters are such CRAP. Get the facts then write the story. Twitter? are you freaking kidding me? I don't twitter or facebook or ANY of that kids CRAP!!!

Robert   June 25th, 2009 11:32 pm ET

Really..what's the big deal? App or no app, you can use the web browser on the iphone to go to WHATEVER WEBSITE you like, be it porn or otherwise. Who cares about a "porn" app on the iphone?


Bruce   June 25th, 2009 11:43 pm ET

Apple simply is not distributing the application, you can get it by other means ... so – no worries – your porn is there for you.

Don't want it? Don't download the app.

my my....that was simple.


Haon   June 26th, 2009 12:27 am ET

I am all for freedoms of speech, and heck I love porn, LOL. But I totally feel Apple had the right to pull this App...if you want porn on your iPhone simply put on your own images or video or JailBreak it.... Apple wants to keep it clean and has made that crystal clear. Do your thing Apple, the iPhone rocks!


Not an apple-phile   June 26th, 2009 12:46 am ET

This is the only way Apple(15% owned by Microsoft) is going to get back on top.Maybe the overly Righteous will go by Apple products because of their similar views on censorship of pornography.


Haon   June 26th, 2009 12:48 am ET

ROTF!.... I love the number of morons who did not read the whole story and pick up the part where Apple dropped the App, ROTF! Again I love porn, I think everything should be unlocked and open, but full hartedly think Apple has a right to put up the Apps they want to and drop what ever Apps they want. Don't like it don't buy and iPhone... grow up people really, the world does not have to bow to your every whim. Do as you please Apple, I am very happy with my iPhone and think you guys are doing a killer job.


nate   June 26th, 2009 2:52 am ET

I honestly have a much harder time stomaching the CNN comments referring to women/womens bodies as evil distractions than I do with topless girls on an iPhone.


courtney   June 26th, 2009 3:53 am ET

good for apple!!!! they have a reputation to uphold. if someone wants to access those images, do it over the internet browser. the application is not only unneccessary, the idea of it is, frankly, disgusting. like there aren't enough ways to access porn out there. do we really need it to be THAT much easier and quicker to locate?


Lauren   June 26th, 2009 4:05 am ET

Oh, all you people who are tired of "being told what to do," get over it! Apple isn't telling you what to do. It's simply making a statement that it does not believe in objectification of women, no matter the dollar value such exploitation would cause. Go, Apple! You've earned yourself the first-wave feminist vote! Of course you can get porn on the internet. But Apple doesn't control that. What Apple DOES control is the App store. And it's saying it wants nothing to do with exploitation of women (okay minus the non-naked photos that are already on there). I wanted an iPhone before, and I want one even more now. Perhaps the rest of you, pro-porn, anti-porn, Bible-thumpers, feminists like me, or just average people, can read Jackson Katz. And don't you DARE call me a prude for being anti-porn. I'm not anti-sex; I'm anti-treating-women-(or men or anyone else either!)-like-objects-to-be-used!


cnmn   June 26th, 2009 4:27 am ET

In today's world, values are being overturned and we whould not just accept anything. I am amazed at the comment of the author when he writes" And, given how lucrative the pornography industry is, is it just a matter of time before nudie pics become available through the App Store?". is it because pornography is lucrative that it is good? Crack is also lucrative, so why don't we start selling it officially at school under "parental guidance" and in shops? Americans say "In God We trust", but do you follow Him? That God you mentionned is not there to accept each and every corrupted human idea. We are to follow Him and not the other way round. Apple did the right thing because it is their product and it's about their values. You don't like it, then simple, don't buy the phone.


Scott   June 26th, 2009 5:08 am ET

I can take pictures of naked women on my iphone. High School kids have also figured out to do this. So, what's the issue? You just can't BUY pictures of naked people? Get over it, already!


ChrisDG74   June 26th, 2009 8:53 am ET

Quit calling it PORN!!!!!! According to the legal definition, porn involves sexual activity, either solo or with another party. Simply being "nekkid" does not qualify. And it should be left to us whether or not we want to have the app. Those of you crying, THIS IS PORN, go back home and thump your bibles.


James   June 26th, 2009 8:54 am ET

When did topless become equal to porn? I truly don't understand the frame of mind that equates the beauty of the human form with evil. Some of the most incredible artwork in history of the naked human body. I'm not saying this App was chock full of high class art, but seriously, it's just skin. We all have it, all over our bodies.


Real Talk   June 26th, 2009 11:10 am ET

You people are silly, especially parents and those frowning on porn. Young men all over clamored to the Iphone so that they can use the great Safari web browser to view porn on!! Whether there are 'Adult Apps' or not Porn will Reign on the Iphone.

Parents who set parental controls and then give the passwords to their kids "...to update their apps" are stupid. You keep the password secret and tell the damn kids to bring the phone to you when they need an update.

BTW, Apple is only looking out for itself and all the money it stands to make by not allowing 'Adult Apps' on the Iphone, as it stands to make even more money siding with the right-wing Christians, who think the phone is perfect and a Godsend, then with the b.s. 30% take they get on apps. Now that's Capitalism.


Real Talk   June 26th, 2009 11:30 am ET

One other thing, if you don't like "adult apps' on the Iphone, you may also want to tell Apple to get rid of the Google App. You see, with the Google App, it comes with a really nifty feature that allows you to 'Speak' what you want to search for. I just tried it and spoke the word 'porn' in the Google App and guess what, it not only took me to a list of porn sites, but Free Porn sites, so I don't have to bother paying for anything.


Bill   June 26th, 2009 12:29 pm ET

OMG, this Dell monitor displayed a topless woman. I sure hope Dell doesn't decide that their products shouldn't be used that way - otherwise, how will I watch an R rated movie!

I love how "topless woman" equates to Porn. Funny, that's R rated, not X rated. So I guess all those R rated moves are now porn. "Zack and Miri make a Porno" must be hard core because it had dudity! And here I thought it was just an adult comedy.


ATM   June 26th, 2009 2:03 pm ET

Eyeing for iPhone's formal entry into the Chinese market, Apple is taking notices of what is happending to Google these days.


Debra Kaufman   June 26th, 2009 3:01 pm ET

The irony of course is that anyone with an iPhone can get as much porn as they want via the mobile web browser. Carriers have also put barriers up against porn on the mobile phone-for obvious liability reasons. The mobile web changes the equation. Read about Playboy's direct-to-subscriber mobile content (still pretty tame) and mobile erotica at http://www.MobilizedTV.com


Robert Johnstone   June 26th, 2009 3:31 pm ET

itunes is really useful for storing pornography on iPhones, and iPods.
When I ride the bus, and sit in class, I often am watching amateur pornography on the iPhone, and iPod.


Brian in Houson   June 26th, 2009 3:43 pm ET

You don't need an app to view adult material on the iPhone as we all know. All the adult industry needs to do is make their web sites iPhone compatible in format and video. Problem solved. If Apple wants to be the moral gate keeper then they have that prerogative. There are other ways of getting adult material on your iPhone.


Brian   June 26th, 2009 3:56 pm ET

People, please carefully re-read the following from Apple:

"Apple will not distribute applications that contain inappropriate content, such as pornography. The developer of this application added inappropriate content directly from their server after the application had been approved and distributed, and after the developer had subsequently been asked to remove some offensive content. This was a direct violation of the terms of the iPhone Developer Program. The application is no longer available on the App Store."

This is NOT a case of moral judgment. This is a LEGAL and CONTRACTUAL issue. The developer was acting in a deceitful manner, and violated the contractual terms of their developer agreement with Apple by trying to circumvent the company's policies. It's that simple. That idiot bloggers totally got this story wrong is one reason why I take ANY blogger with an enormous dose of salt. The pundits failed to research the facts, and by their ready-fire-aim approach to publishing, they have damaged the reputation of the company.

Please carefully re-read the statement quoted above. This is not spin. It's a definition in legal terms of why the app was removed. Please don't assume, or judge until you know the facts. And in this case, it appears that many of you with short attention span or baked-in prejudice failed to read the entire story.


James in Nebraska   June 26th, 2009 4:05 pm ET

My wife shows be here boobies and then we have sex. Oh your god! We are evil!

Really, lighten up. Git rid of everything that uses electricity and then lock your kids in their rooms so you can protect them from the real world.


Jan   June 26th, 2009 6:29 pm ET

The most important lesson from this published and then revised article must be that CNN is just publishing second hand information from the internet without without doing any independent verification of the facts in the story.
Readers beware to draw conclusions from stories posted here or base your judgement of companies or people based on this information.


nonikwe   June 26th, 2009 8:56 pm ET

I firmly believe in the freedom and right to be my own judge of the material I view – That said I am an adult, chidren should have restricted access and apple provides that on their devices. Further I applaud apple for choosing what apps they approve for the iPhone,
I would be sad if this removal is just a knee-jerk reaction to pressure from a small group,
Censoring, controls & prohibition are very thin edges to a very large and thick wedge giving others rights over your life – history often records them as dangerous.
Lasly the internet is available on the iPhone allowing access to porn and you can use parental controls to prevent this alternatively for those determined souls wanting porn you can jailbreak and go third party – Seems a lot of work to view what 3 billion women and men have naturally and in common COMICAL REALLY!!


John Hope   June 26th, 2009 10:26 pm ET

Its one thing for you to do it in your home another in public. I think Apple should pull it. Kids are already over saturated and the phone is for the masses. We need more parents not understanding adults. And if you call that being a prude then I rather be one.


Aaron   June 27th, 2009 3:42 pm ET

Some of you are just dumb. all smartphones have access to porn, why centre apple out, when they are the most restrictive of adult material then any other smartphone on the market.


Private Citizen   June 27th, 2009 3:53 pm ET

Let me get this straight... we buy the phone, we buy the service, we buy the apps... exactly WHERE does anyone not get this chain of events? If you don't want any or all of these... vote w/ your feet! Don't buy the app, boycott the service, toss the phone. But for those who aren't prudes, puritans, or selling some form of snake oil... leave it alone


steve c   June 28th, 2009 3:28 am ET

My ten-year old daughter spends a lot of time looking through the iTunes store for new apps and games. I would not want her stumbling on soft porn during her surfing. If you want porn on your iPod or iPhone, then there are ways and means of loading it, without Apple iTunes store displaying and selling the stuff.

Let's keep the Apple store porn-free and family-friendly.


malkiaja   June 28th, 2009 9:31 am ET

Okay so you're a mature grown adult who can watch nudity anytime you like, right? So then why not surf the web in privacy like you do now? A mature person knows when to concede his ways for the sake of others. This will run over into other things. First it's a private app, then they start advertising it, then kids find ways to abuse it. Look at alcohol and smoking and prescription meds. That is just the progression of things. So go ahead and be selfish and see what happens.


JC   June 28th, 2009 11:07 am ET

it's about what it's always about, $$$$$$$$$$$. Parents can prosecute Apple for distributing porn to their children. I'm pleased that Apple does not wish to objectify women and portray them as pieces of flesh, and naked bodies. Men do your perversion on your home computers. Stop peddling your filth to my children.


Robert   June 29th, 2009 1:38 am ET

It's amazing how many people commenting are quick to judge Apple as though they approved and distributed hard core pornography. If you actually read before you let your fingers fly you would have noticed Apple is sticking to it's own policy of NO inappropriate materials by banning the application for sale on the iTunes site. To the people that have been bad-mouthing Apple stating they have done an awful thing need to read the whole story and realize Apple is on your side here. I doubt Apple will ever offer porn on iTunes. There are many outlets for porn available to technology users. Apple of all organizations knows that they don't need to include porn to attract people to their amazingly popular and highly designed gizmos.


Tom   June 29th, 2009 8:14 am ET

I am glad to read some of the comments. We as Americans have been behind the curve on this subject for years. Our view "which is probably not our view but our Vatican overseer's view" of -violence its good, sex is bad- while the rest of the world is -violence is bad and sex is good- all i have to say is stop the craziness. Well, anyhow like someone meantioned we don't really need an app to see soft or hardcore items, everyone techy knows that.

Joseph   June 30th, 2009 12:00 pm ET

Has anybody else stopped to think what it would mean if Apple all of a sudden started to OK pornography apps? I suspect the results would be terrifically depressing, with porno apps taking over the App Store. Apple has an image to uphold, and graphic, sexual images and applications are not part of that image, no matter what you may think.


Jackie   June 30th, 2009 12:35 pm ET

I'm just curious, why does any child who is not of working age have an iPhone? Parents are actually buying this phone for kids? Why? These parents on here are acting so concerned about shielding their children, but you've gone out and bought them mobile Internet essentially, that you can't monitor every second of the day. A phone for emergencies okay, but no one under working age needs this phone. Seriously.


Gwydion   June 30th, 2009 12:40 pm ET

@Samuel Cole

"In Europe there are commercials that are shown on TV and played on the radio or in print that would be seen as porn here in the US"

I live in a town near Barcelona (Spain), we have a nudist beach just 1 meter away were families are walking, cycling, etc and no one cares about nude people sunbathing.


Jason   June 30th, 2009 5:11 pm ET

Just wanted to echo a point already made:

Every iphone is internet connected. Thus every iphone can view porn. The app is simply steamlining the process.

I do however agree with Apple's desire to keep the "top 25" apps in it's store family friendly... I'd venture a guess that if this company had remained quiet about the addition of nudity, Apple wouldn't have a problem. It's when you stand up and shout "I'M SELLING PORN OVER HERE" that you get yourself in trouble.

Steven   August 1st, 2009 3:13 am ET

Rest assured, the only reason all of these religious fanatics are so well versed in the evils of pornography is because the restrictions they place on themselves in public within their community leaves them needing to wank off for hours when they have a moment of privacy, leaving them feeling guilty and ashamed. Since they can't control these 'urges', which the rest of us know to appreciate, explore, and enjoy, they think the solution is to have the porn made inaccessible to themselves (it's not the kids that they are really worried about). Such fanatics would be wise to realize that any such god as they claim to know would much more disapprove of their two-faced hypocrisy than of anyone enjoying sexuality and the human body - in ANY pleasurable position.

A description of what a prepper is by Mayberry...

As times get tough, and the bad news keeps coming in bushels, many folks are asking themselves the question, "What should I do"? Many search the internet for answers, using terms like "preparations", "how to be prepared", or maybe "preparing for what's to come"....

Some folks stumble across the term " prepper " and dig a little deeper out of curiosity. Some worry about their survival and search along that line. Or they arrive by one of a hundred other possibilities.....
