Your Pervy Apps May Still Not Run Wild In The Apple Store!
Apple came up with a crazy idea-it’s going to make the guidelines for iPhone and iPad app approval public! Nuts right? “For the first time we are publishing the App Store Review Guidelines to help developers understand how we review submitted apps” is how Apple put it. But bad news too, because here’s the part of the guidelines: “’Apps containing pornographic material, defined by Webster’s Dictionary as ‘explicit descriptions or displays of sexual organs or activities intended to stimulate erotic rather than aesthetic or emotional feelings,’ will be rejected.” It’s crazy that the technology of the would-be future refuses to allow the present to catch up with it. (Also, Webster’s Dictionary! I bet there’s an app for that. But who cares.)
