Nude teen pic in iPhone App
Nude photos and other objectionable materials have been showing up in the iPhone application store in recent weeks, raising questions about Apple's ability to control iPhone content. |
In the most recent example, a nude photo of a young woman, reported to be 15 years of age, showed up on an iPhone application called BeautyMeter, according to Wired.com and Krapps.com, which are application review sites.
The photo, which apparently was submitted by one of the photo-sharing app's users, prompted Apple to remove the entire mobile application from its online store.
Funnymals, maker of the BeautyMeter app, which lets users upload and posts photos of people and then rank them based on "hotness," says in a statement on its website that it agrees with Apple's decision to yank the phone application from its online store.
Funnymals also says its policies prohibit people from posting nude photos to the application.
About a week earlier, another mobile phone application, Hottest Girl, showcased a photo of a topless woman and was also pulled from the iPhone app store.
