Apple ejects iBoobs

Jubblies not lovely, actually

Secure remote control for conventional and virtual desktops

An application that allows iPhone users to wobble a pair of breasts has been rejected by Apple's application store, denying iPhone geeks the nearest thing to sex they'll get this holiday season.

The application was rejected on the grounds of "objectionable content", though with the caveat: "If you believe that you can make the necessary changes so that iBoobs does not violate the iPhone SDK Agreement we encourage you to do so." Though it's hard to see how that wouldn't detract from the core proposition:

The app was developed by Mystic Game Development, and we have to accept the possibility that it was done just to demonstrate their character animation middleware - in which case we can only congratulate them on a job well done.

Apple is, of course, missing a trick here: a small tweak (ahem) would allow the most enthusiastic vibration to cause the Bulgarian airbags to burst their restraints. Even the rumour of such a feature would no doubt sell a lot of replacement iPhones - in fact, a rumour might work better.

Some of the more seasoned Reg hacks reckon this is a rip off of an early DOS application that offered much the same functionality, only using mouse prods rather than tilt functions, so perhaps Apple was more worried about copyright infringement than upsetting the masses. ®
