Since some of you will hopefully be developing apps over the next few weeks, this is relevant news. Apple chucked out 5000 apps recently for racy content like bikinis, tight shorts, cleavage, or anything sexy that you might regularly see in a movie, TV ad, supermarket magazine stand, billboard, or in “real life” like on vacation or at school or the mall or looking out the window while in the car… Anything a boy’s eye might venture toward, is gone. More details here.
A developer from ChilliFresh was able to speak with someone at Apple and got back this list of “don’ts”…
- No images of women bikinis or ice skating tights.
- No sexual connotations or innuendo, signifying sex etc.
- Nothing that is sexually arousing.
- “No skin (he seriously said this. I asked if a Burqa was OK, and the Apple guy got angry),” added blogger Jonau at ChilliFresh.
So to everyone participating in my iPhone tutorial series, keep this in mind for your apps later on. And for the rest of you, the consumers of such products as the iPad, iPod, or iPhone, to make your day a tad sexier just look up. There’s even some constellations that get pretty, pretty wild.
