Apple considering 'explicit' options for App Store

Apple considering 'explicit' options for App Store Apple Inc. is apparently considering to provide options for 'explicit' applications to the company's popular App Store. This comes just days after Apple began removing applications that contained sexual or suggestive content without prior warning or notification to the developers.
The move was mostly criticized by the developers and by the tech media, possibly prompting Apple's decision to search for a compromise. The applications that Apple removed mostly just contained semi-nudity or innuendo. Some developers felt they were being punished for the content despite being given the green light for the applications by Apple in the first place.

"Whenever we receive customer complaints about objectionable content we review them. If we find these apps contain inappropriate material we remove them and request the developer make any necessary changes in order to be distributed by Apple," a statement from Apple read at the time.

An Apple spokesperson confirmed to Gizmodo that something was being considered as a compromise but that it's "not going to happen any time soon."
