“Explicit” category for App Store to be created?


Apple banned more than 5,000 apps this week because they were containing adult material, now it seems that Apple is going to make an “Explicit” category for those adult apps.

The apps were banned because several people (most of them were women) reported them and were concerned about children seeing the explicit material.


This is not confirmed yet. But this category could tell one thing, Apple may provide enhanced parental control, or maybe a separate “adult” App Store. What other way to maintain revenue for Apple and the developers? This can be Apple’s reply to it being too strict with adult related content. Don’t hope for anything more hardcore than R-rated, because I’m pretty sure Apple won’t allow it.
