Macenstein, a blog on all things Apple, wrote, "Today, the iTunes app store became a man. Developer Allen Leung had proudly told Macenstein, "We ed nude topless pics today. This is the first app to have nudity. Leunge may have made one boast too many. The application, "Hottest Girls," was available Wednesday to users of the iPhone and iPod Touch, but has since been pulled from the store.
The application is no longer available on the App Store. The application ly displayed photos of women in lingerie and bikinis. But earlier this week -- about a week after Apple unveiled a new operating system that includes parental controls that could filter out explicit content -- the developers took off what was left of the clothes and turned up the heat on their product's content.
But if Apple did give "Hottest Girls" the boot, it certainly wouldn't be the first time Apple's screening process has left controversial headlines in its wake. One of the most recent apps to grab headlines, the 99 cent Baby Shaker , was pulled from the App Store after it prompted outrage from organizations such as the National Center on Shaken Baby Syndrome and the Sarah Jane Brain Foundation.
The description of the app said, "See how long you can endure his or her adorable cries before you just have to find a way to quiet the baby down! The program displays a black and white picture of a baby with the sound of crying. Users shake the iPhone to stop the crying until Xs appear on the eyes of the baby. The company behind the app, Sikalosoft, did not immediately respond to requests for comment.
Apple offered an apology soon after it appeared, the same day the App Store reached 1 billion downlo. Apple spokeswoman Natalie Kerris said the game was "deeply offensive" and should not have been approved for sale, according to The Associated Press. Deed by German developer Armin Heinrich, the program did nothing but broadcast to the world the wealth of the owner. Once downloaded and activated, "I Am Rich" displayed a glowing, red "ruby" on the user's iPhone screen. In its official App Store description, the developer wrote: "The red icon on your iPhone or iPod Touch always reminds you and others when you show it to them that you were able to afford this.
It's a work of art with no hidden function at all. According to tech blog Valleywag, one curious patron accidentally downloaded the application, thinking it was a joke. But it seems that seven others -- five in the United States, one in Germany and one in France -- meant to actually buy the pricey program. When another developer tried to spoof the "I Am Rich" app with a "poor man's version," Apple denied that one, too. Apple told him it was turned down because it didn't contain any user-accessible functionality, he said. Macia said he adapted the app in March so that it's now an E-Book of P.
Barnum's "Art of Money Getting. Still, Apple's vague process has not stopped Macia from trying, and failing, again on another app. He learned in January that his game "Prohibition 2: Dope Wars" had also been rejected. In the game, users pretend to be drug dealers in New York City trying to make as much money as possible in 30 days by trafficking illegal substances.
In its Software Development Kit SDK , it says that "Applications must not contain any obscene, pornographic, offensive or defamatory content or materials of any kind text, graphics, images, photographs, etc. But Macia told ABCnews. And the of farting applications easily exceeds , he added.
Macia went back to the drawing board, changed the name of the game to "Prohibition 1: Bootlegger," replaced the names of drugs with the names of alcohol and went back to Apple. This time, the company approved it. Encouraged, Macia successfully submitted another game "Prohibition 3: Candy Wars," set in a future in which candy is illegal. Since he'd scored with two games that were only cosmetically different from the original one that had been rejected, he tried once more.
But, no such luck: It got the thumbs down again. When an Iraqi journalist hurled his shoe at President George W. Bush during a news conference in December, he inspired a monument , a host of Web games and, of course, an iPhone app. The popular social media blog Mashable reported in February that "My Shoe," created by a developer in Pakistan, had been given the no-go by the App store team.
The game used the phone's accelerometer to let users pretend to throw a shoe at the former president. In a rejection letter, Apple told the developer it determined that it could not "post this version of your iPhone application to the App Store because it contains content that ridicules public figures," according to Mashable.
But the developer reportedly took issue with Apple's rejection, writing, "I feel this is huge discrimination against public opinion, as a major portion of world rejects Bush polices on Iraq and attacks on Pakistan. Patrick Alphonso, president of Swamiware , received a similar response from Apple when he submitted "Obama Trampoline.
The game, he thought, was pretty innocuous. You choose a U. Using the accelerometer, you could make Sarah Palin do a flip, tilt a pants-less Bill Clinton to the side or turn Barack Obama upside down. Having already successfully submitted strategy, word and card games, he expected it to get the green light.
But Apple gave a firm "no. People were crazy about Obama, about Palin. The artwork was great. But when he explored the back alleys of the App Store, he said he found another approved app that also featured a cartoon of a politician: "Pocket Arnold. But when he e-mailed Apple for further explanation, he said the company didn't provide more specifics. When you shake your iPhone or iPod Touch, you also shake an animated image of a woman's chest.
Apple told the developer it was "inappropriate sexual content," according to PCWorld. Besides that, iBoobs is just a 3-D model and not even real. The developer behind "Slasher" was also told his app was out of line. Created by Josef Wankerl of Austin, Texas, the app displays a kitchen knife on the screen and plays the "horror" sound when you make a stabbing motion with the phone or iPod Touch. Apple told him it violated the part of the guidelines that objected to "obscene, pornographic, offensive or defamatory content," he said. He also said it bothers him that other approved Apps could also be seen as obscene or offensive.
He said he improved the app and was told, upon resubmitting it, that it had been approved. But despite weeks of e-mails, the status still says "Removed from Sale. Although Apple is notoriously tight-lipped in its external relationships, one intrepid developer was able to get none other than the man behind the curtain, co-founder Steve Jobs himself, to weigh in on his rejection. Our long international nightmare is almost over," the pair wrote on their company Juggleware LLC's Web site. He said Apple told him the app was defamatory.
But Vance disagreed and decided to let the company's CEO know about it. Surprisingly, Jobs wrote back: "Even though my personal political leanings are democratic, I think this app will be offensive to roughly half our customers. What's the point? Vance wasn't entirely pleased with the company but was impressed by the CEO and took it as a good omen, he said.
