How's that "app approval" process working for you now Apple fans? No malware, but also no choice what-so-ever in what you want to install. Reminds me of being a parent. I suppose you could jail-break and load up cydia, or you know, just get a real phone like a SGS3. ;)

Why is Apple so anti-porn? I mean its not like the app is forced on consumers; it's not even marketed or intended for that use, it just a side affect.

Why does there have to be a war between people that simple choose to buy a different brand phone. If you want Android then buy Android; if someone whats to buy WP8 or iP5 then the Androids attack! Give it a rest will you!

I don't think that's what he meant. your been a troll. you must have missed the "you could jail-break and load up cydia"
Or the point of Apple making decisions for its users, or the possible violation of the US constitution regarding free speech and freedoms. 500 need to test this in court. or as the other comments suggest - apple need to remove all apps and tech that could be used to create distribute porn. i bet they have no issues with else where.
i wonder if Apple have there own photo sharing app coming out soon, and they need to remove some competition?

Porn on the iPhone? who cares. Kids should not have an iPhone anyways.
And adults are smart enough to view what they don't want to view.
Leave kids playing on crappy tablets since they break everything.
Apple products are too expensive for kids to use, and expensive to replace if broken.


Apple is scared the iPhone be labeled as iPorn.

Parents do not have to install this App on Kids iPod Touch.

It doesn't have to be up to Apple. There could always be a warning in the disclaimer of the app, so parents who install the app knows.

Nude is not porno. Huge difference.

I dont get why people get so uptight over everything. If you dont like something, dont use it. Stop complaining and ruining stuff that most never had a problem with.

Same uptight pseudo-religious society that allows violent movies that show dismemberment and other things a dime a dozen as perfectly appropriate. God forbid there is a sexual theme in there, though.
Hypocrites.
