    Tik Tok, which was pulled from the App Store in India last week to comply with a government demand to block downloads over child safety concerns, is allowed to return to the App Store, reports Reuters.

    The southern state of Tamil Nadu had asked the Indian government to ban the TikTok app on the grounds that it encouraged pornography and could expose children to sexual predators, leading the government to send a letter to Apple and Google asking the companies to remove the app from their respective App Stores.

    Today, after hearing a plea from the app's creator, Bytedance, the state court reversed its decision pushing for the app's ban. An Indian government official told Reuters that once the court's order had been received, it would ask Apple and Google to reinstate the app.

    Created by China-based Bytedance Technology, TikTok is designed to let users create and share short-form videos enhanced with digital effects, which has been particularly successful in India. Before being pulled from the App Store, TikTok had been downloaded more than 240 million times in the country.

    Bytedance told Indian officials that it was losing up to $500,000 dollars a day during the ban, and that more than 250 jobs were at risk.

    As if the US is better at privacy.
    Btw. flip your device and read what’s written “Made in China”, now you’re allowed to smash and trash it...

    Good. Maybe now Intel can finally get back to the faster tick-tock CPU upgrade cycle.

    The US is better at privacy. But mainly the issue is China blocks our services there, so they don't deserve to serve here.

    So the counterargument to pulling an app over allegations of encouraging child porn is that they’d lose a lot of money?

    Just throw the first stone, and stop using services, software and hardware made and running in China.
    Easy, but so long nobody starts, nothing will change.

    Nobody will care if I throw the first stone. They will care if the entire US does. I mean, really China threw the first stone.

    Gotta get that money! I hope they’re making changes to the app as part of the deal.
