It may be next to impossible but Apple is trying to deny developers from making applications that are pornagraphic. Just recently Apple banned an iPhone application for reportedly featuring explicit pictures of a 15-year-old girl.
The "BeautyMeter" enables iPhone and iPod Touch owners to view user-submitted photos and rate them based on various body parts and clothing. The program shows pictures of women and men in various states of undress. Before it was pulled from the App Store last Thursday, it featured a picture of a topless 15-year-old female.
Just over a week ago, Wired.com reported on an application called "Hottest Girls", which released an update to include topless photos of women. Apple pulled it hours later, saying porn is not allowed.
"Apple will not distribute applications that contain inappropriate content, such as pornography. The developer of this application added inappropriate content directly from their server after the application had been approved and distributed and after the developer had subsequently been asked to remove some offensive content. This was a direct violation of the terms of the iPhone Developer Program. The application is no longer available on the App Store," an Apple spokesman said regarding Hottest Girls on June 25.
Adult material infiltrates every technical modality of our life, and to rely on corporate America to police it for us we are missing the main point, and that is for our hearts to be guarded.
