    Amid Apple's rampant removal of thousands of apps, here's one specifically they removed: Simply Beach (http://www.simplybeach.com/)

    (note: Their website might be offline at the moment due to traffic. Refer to google search)

    They're a company from the UK specializing in selling beach outfits. Their app was a shopping portal for their designs. Except now, apparently, it's just a "porn app," if the chatter were believed to be true about Apple's most recent swipe in their app store.

    and

    And the masses are still in full support of Apple's store cleaning?

    Yes, I support their efforts to clean up the App Store
    I am sorry for the few that get caught in the backwash
    But overall, I am glad they are drawing a line

    I'm so glad. I was sick to see all the "new apps" were always boob apps.

    I fully support apple getting rid of the stupid crap but they definitely got the undeserved shaft here. Hopefully they get it fixed.

    I don't see the point of "cleaning house." It's not like there needs to be a finite number of applications available for the iPhone/iPod/iPad. If a consumer doesn't like an app with boobs, they don't have to download it. The whole thing is just stupid.

    AGREED! Censorship is not a good thing to promote or support.

    You're not trying to sell billions of dollars worth of hardware and software to school boards and parents across the country (not just on the coasts). Try that and you'll find a huge financial incentive for "cleaning house", or at least the strong appearance of doing so. These consumers probably like apps with boobs, but they can't say they want their kids to see those apps also, or they'll get voted out of office faster than you can sneeze.

    I think we need more tip calculators.

    Good job cleaning up and thank you for keeping GTA. Now there is a game that every teenager should play. Better that than looking at women in bikinis:rolleyes:

    For health, not points. And you can kill them afterwards and get your money back.

    ... yeah.

    IMagine it's easier for Apple to bring a few back into the store after the dust settles. It's not beyond speculation that they have some changes afoot with the ITunes store come iPad release/ OS 4 - and this is an interim banhammer happy session. Least Schiller came out and talked a bit pretty quickly.
    I'd imagine the TOS and or agreements the developers have gone into cover Apple -

    Anyway, isn't just a clear sign - if you want blue apps - just use the web/web apps...

    This is nonsense. Apple pull a beachwear app and keep the Playboy app.

    If Apple want the App store to be more family-friendly, they should take classification more seriously instead of playing censor.

    So what's next for some of you, some good ol book burnings? I have a better idea for all of you, how about you parent your children and keep them from accessing these apps! I know it sounds crazy that I even suggest you step up and take some responsibility and actually be a parent, but tough love is sometimes needed. Why would your child or any other child for that matter have access to these apps? I really have no need for boob apps but what goes next? FFS get a life, learn how to be a responsible person and if YOU don't want to download a boob app, then guess what....... don't do it! How about you let the adults in the world decide what we want. Pretty typical of Americans though "I don't like it so no one should have/see it". Freakin pathetic.

    Way to bring your totally irrelevant opinion of Americans into a thread.

    I just checked to see if there was a Victoria's Secret app. There is. Inconsistent Apple?

    But do the clerics give full access to whatever titillation the users want via the web with a mobile browser?

    I always love all the outrage and cries of censorship. Apple made a business decision, plain and simple.

    How can you even find your computer/phone to type that post with your head so far up Apple's arse? :confused:

    I'd support Apple's decision if they allowed you to load apps on the phone outside of the app store. WebOS, Android, WM, and RIM all allow you to use their app store in addition to installing applications outside of the app store but Apple doesn't.
