    I can't believe Apple would allow this in the App Store! :eek: :mad:

    The app is called Check MyHottie

    Obviously the 40 reviewers were too busy pondering the Google Voice app to notice it.

    Until then, I would hope the OP deletes the link.

    Edit: And I realize the OP may think he's being helpful posting this as something that shouldn't be in the app store, but this is too much help, IMO.

    Edit2: Thanks Dr. Q.

    Edit3: Here's a quote from the previous site link that the OP kindly sent me so I could revise my comments: "What’s even more disturbing than the aforementioned hardcore porno images, are the pictures of young children also found within the Check myHottie app. By young, we don’t mean sixteen years old … rather in the five to twelve year old range. To be clear, there are NO nude underage pictures … however, the fact that these children are on display with hardcore pornography, coupled with the fact their images are receiving sexually orientated comments, is absolutely sick and disgusting (even the users of Check myHottie are offended by the images)." So, that's my point about the app and link. They may not have been nude, but we all know the inference being made here. And as stated in other parts of the article, the pics that were shown of the adults were mild in comparison to what is supposedly on the app itself. I wouldn't know or care. My problem is the kids being in the app, clothed or unclothed. That is all. I understand why the OP made the post, but I don't think we need to help advertise it.

    Sorry guys... If there are kids on this site, why are they clicking on a thread called "Porn: There's an app for that"? Oh well. Link has been removed by the mods. Sorry.

    Impressive it has survived this long without being pulled from the store.

    ITT: A bunch of prudes complaining.

    EDIT: Downloaded it. It's so slow and ugly. Other than that I see no problem. I guess some people want Apple to drop the banhammer whenever it suits their moral code and not otherwise.

    Why is this such a big deal? So what you can see porn on it. You can see porn on Safari too, but I don't hear people saying they hope Safari gets banned.:confused:

    Ok so porn is the biggest industry in entertainment, and thanks to it we have CD, DVD, HD, BR etc etc yet people are getting their knickers in a twist over a porn app.

    In this thread:

    Alot of adults with morals, and a bunch of 13 year olds who don't see what the problem is...

    That's my take atleast. :p

    I don't think it did. It had a couple of pictures of children's faces.

    So Apple changed the rules?

    Btw people, there is quite a difference between nudity, and pornography.

    I'm 27 and just see nothing wrong with nudity. I was warned when getting the app that it was rated 17+ so I can't see a single thing wrong here. It's exactly how I'd like the store to work but I have a feeling this app slipped through a crack and it'll be gone soon. I hope not though. Even though I've already deleted it, it would be a good sign.
