Apple isn't a fan of boobs or booty

Share

iphone-boob-application.pngBoth “boobs” and “booty” have been banned from being used in marketing text for an application called “Wobble”, which allows users to add ‘wobble points’, around which any picture they like will wobble. If that confused you, check the promotional video for the app, but be warned, it’s probably mildly NSFW.

Back in December, an application called iBoobs was banned from the App store, and now ‘Wobble’ is under threat too. When the developer complained about the censorship, Apple told him “Wobble and Apple had an agreement that we needed to comply with”.

Apple are rather tetchy about the tone of the app store. For a long time, burp and fart apps weren’t allowed (though they’re now ridiculously popular), and full-on porn has never been allowed. Where does the line get drawn, though? Share your opinion in the comments.
