    iChatr has been removed from the App Store. I couldn't find out why...

    Explicit content

    Unfortunately it was removed due the fact no random chatting was actually taking place. But, instead people were randomly showing off the tops of their heads, ceilings, and private parts. It is sad. It could have been fun chatting with someone across the world. But unfortunately it was ruined by the sick and perverted showing more of themselves than anyone really wanted to see. I am sure in some way it also competed with facetime.

    ...I chatted with a few people. I enjoy the app. I still have it. I will still use it. I hope they add some features like "block". That might get Apple to put it back in the App Store.

    Given that Lord Job's has dictated that his closed virtual world and it's loyal subjects be infused with victorian era chastity, the chances of this app reappearing are slim to none. Have to say though that the first time I showed somebody this app (at an Apple store no less), the first chat I got was somebody exposing his junk.

    I've seen some crazy stuff on it, from two old guys in bed to "Black Power" and "kill whity" signs. I'm shocked the app made it to the store in the first place.

    Ah man that sucks!

    Sadly it is the truth with any video/photo sharing app. Everyone wants to turn it into a sex app. Luckily a few of the photo sharing apps have a mature on/off switch, so by default you shouldn't be getting images of peoples' junk.
