Apple App Goes Nude, Gets Pulled, May Go Nude Again
It's been an up-and-down day for porn-loving iPhone owners. Reports began breaking last night and this morning that the app 'Hottest Girls,' which formerly featured nubile lasses dressed in bikinis and lingerie, would be providing photographs of nude models. The nudity news shouldn't come as too much of a surprise since Apple implemented parental controls for its newly released iPhone 3.0 SDK, which many believed would lead to the availability of pornographic apps.
Strictly for research purposes, and to maintain journalistic integrity (is that still a word?), we browsed the app store to verify the new release. (It wasn't just to catch a glimpse of boobies, we promise.) We left disappointingly unfulfilled, though, when we received a message that the app was not available.
Now, some might be worried that Apple pulled the racy app due to negative publicity, but, according to AllenTheGeek.com, the app is merely temporarily sold out. Afraid the porn rush of prospective buyers would crash their servers, distributor ATG has temporarily halted the app's sale, but has assured the porn-loving public that the titillating images will return. Until then, you'll have to continue getting your iPhone porno fix with Safari. [From: TechCrunch and Engadget]
