Apple squashes wobbly jub app

No iBoobs on your iPhone, says Titfinder General

Intelligent flash storage arrays

Apple has decided to pull the jubtastic Wobble iBoobs from its App Store as part of an alleged puritanical clamp-down on "overtly sexual content".

Jon Atherton, the developer of the bouncy-bouncy entertainment, told TechCrunch that he received this missive from the powers that be:

The App Store continues to evolve, and as such, we are constantly refining our guidelines. Your application, Wobble iBoobs (Premium Uncensored), contains content that we had originally believed to be suitable for distribution. However, we have recently received numerous complaints from our customers about this type of content, and have changed our guidelines appropriately.

We have decided to remove any overtly sexual content from the App Store, which includes your application.

Thank you for your understanding in this matter. If you believe you can make the necessary changes so that Wobble iBoobs (Premium Uncensored) complies with our recent changes, we encourage you to do so and resubmit for review.

Sincerely, iPhone App Review

Aficionados of undulating iMams will recall that a "nice fellow in developer relations" at Apple last year asked Atherton to remove the words "boobs" and "booty" from the app's publicity, but it now appears that was merely a precursor to the main assault on smut.

TechCrunch's hack selflessly investigated the censorship claim by attempting to download “Exotic Positions” and “Sexy Women” - without success - but was able to get his hands on “Beautiful Boobs” and “Sexy Girls Uncovered”.

We await with bated breath and heaving breast word from Apple's Titfinder General clarifying just what outrages against common decency will be cast into the fires of Hell. ®
