Apple rejects ‘iBoobs’ from iTunes App Store (with video)

“An application that allows iPhone users to wobble a pair of breasts has been rejected by Apple’s application store, denying iPhone geeks the nearest thing to sex they’ll get this holiday season,” Bill Ray writes for The Register.

MacDailyNews Take: It’s amazing, but Bill knows the intimate details of all 18-20 million iPhone users’ ostensibly sex-free lives. We iPhone users are like the Shakers: we’re constantly recruiting new users. Not having to take care of babies and children gives us all more time to download apps and, of course, to tweet.

Ray continues, “The application was rejected on the grounds of ‘objectionable content,’ though with the caveat: ‘If you believe that you can make the necessary changes so that iBoobs does not violate the iPhone SDK Agreement we encourage you to do so.'”

iBoobs:

Ray writes, “Apple is, of course, missing a trick here: a small tweak (ahem) would allow the most enthusiastic vibration to cause the Bulgarian airbags to burst their restraints. Even the rumour of such a feature would no doubt sell a lot of replacement iPhones – in fact, a rumour might work better.”

  1. That app is sitting on the fence. I personally don’t degrade women, but this app gives a cute little chuckle even if you are a woman, but it shouldn’t go any farther than that. Apple knows that someone would take it farther and make it springloaded, which then gets into the category of degradation and offensive to some. God created boobs of all sizes, so I think this app shouldn’t make progress…just use your imaginination to think what would be next. There’s a whole other industry if you need your brain permanently filled with that mess.

  2. YouTube on iPhone already has loads of sexual content.

    iBoobs needs to be more generic in scope and not be based solely on boobs. It needs to be a VR object viewer that only loads scenarios into it from the web. You could have various innocent 3D objects subjected to the motion control of the iPhone.

    Then just make some of them be BOOBS.

    If boobs are an optional *downloadable* piece of content *into* the app then Apple can’t control that any more they can stop me from showing girls kissing in YouTube or visiting porn websites in Safari or sending pics via emails.

  3. This is the most ridiculous rejection I have ever heard of. They are not even naked boobs or realistic boobs. We are talking cartoon boobs that don’t look especially real. Avatar boobs. Apple will sell you a game where you can blow a guys head off, but cartoon boobs are off limits????

    Only in the USA would something like this be considered “risque” (even though most of you don’t know what “risque” means and can’t spell it if you do.) Shameful, shameful act.
