Apple needs to get laid.

Apple has had a problem with porn since the beginning of its decent into the mobile app world. The Apple App store being a curated experience to keep quality up, even though it is still filled with tons of crapps (see what I did there?), has taken a strong stance against pornographic material.

In recent, Apple has removed the 500px app, a popular photo sharing service much like a flickr, because it was “too easy” to find nudes. Then shit got real when new Twitter app “Vine” dropped becoming very popular very fast and also allowing hashtags such as #porn, #dildo, #sex, and many more fun topics to be searched for and a slew of results would flood in. I was lucky enough to experience the app before the crack down began, I noticed popular topics being pulled from the search results, users disappearing, and finally it became very difficult to find any X rated material. A sad day for the app world if you ask me.

I am a huge fan of services like Twitter and Tumblr because I can follow all sorts of crazy things, I dislike services like Facebook and even Instagram for censoring content, even going to extremes of not allowing members to send pornographic materials through their message system. Now I am not saying porn should be everywhere and we do need to protect the youth, But if I an adult who was able to create an App Store account (pretty sure you need a credit card to do that) I should be allowed to use apps that may contain adult content.

Short of it all, screw censorship. What are your thoughts?


Instagram on Android

It has now been a little over a week since the popular iPhone app Instagram hit the Android Market (or Play Store I hate that name) and it was greeted with mixed reactions. iPhone users cried and whined as if their secret club had been broken into, while other (resourceful?) Android users turned their nose up claiming other apps do just as much as Instagram if not more. While this all might be true my Android camera app has definitely switched to Instagram. It is far faster and reliable than the built in camera app that came with my Droid X, but most important the people I care about use the app. I can now share and enjoy snapshots of my friends, family, and followers lives everywhere I go. That is what matters most to me. So you iPhone users can cry because we busted your club house doors down and ripped up your comic books, and you Android users can be pompous ass-hats and claim the Instagram killer lives amongst us, because I am sticking with Instagram!
