If speculations are true, these applications could find their way back into the
soon. Folks at
“. These links, which have since then been removed, point towards a possibility of a separate category for iPhone and
with sexual content. Nevertheless, we are unsure if
with explicit content are coming back anytime soon.
Having said that, a separate category for explicit content could be an acceptable solution. Despite their offensive nature, apps with sexual content are among the most downloaded applications on the App Store. Consequently, offering a separate category for such content is not only a business imperative for Apple and third party developers, but a separate category also ensures that users who find these apps degrading do not have to filter through such content on the other App Store categories or have the ability to hide the category using iPhone 's parental controls.
We would love to hear your views on this. Will a separate category address the concerns of parents and women? Do let us know what you think in the comments.
