First 'iPorn' hits the App Store

By  

Did that last call you made on your iPhone upset you to the point where only female nudity can lift your spirits? There's an app for that!

Thanks to the new parental control feature of the iPhone 3.0 OS, the first 'iPorn' has arrived in the form of a new batch of content for existing app 'Hottest Girls' which previously contained images of women in lingerie and bikinis. The developer told Mac-enthusiast site Macenstein, "We uploaded nude topless pics today. This is the first app to have nudity." The app is rated 17+.

No one is going to be able to resist that 'iPorn' term, but from what Macenstein shows, it's pretty tame stuff (exposed breasts), at least compared to what is easily available on the web from that same iPhone. It'll be interesting to see how far Apple let's this go before they start removing apps from the store. My guess is that they'll follow the same sort of guidelines that non-explicit cable TV (e.g., Cinemax) follows.

Best to end the post there before NetNanny blocks us.

Update: According to Engadget, the 'Hottest Girls' app has been removed from the store.
