Apple has decided to make some serious changes to the types of Apps that it will allow for sale on the App Store. The company pulled several apps in the past week that it deemed to be of a sexual nature, or not fit for audiences of a younger generation. There was no warning given to the app developers. The apps simply disappeared, and the creators received an email after the fact.
Several people, of course, are not very happy with this decision. Some of these apps have been for sale for several months. And (as one would guess) many in the community are yelling the censorship word loudly.
I can see both sides of this coin, and I’m torn as to what the right thing to do is. I understand Apple’s point of view… as well as that of the people who are now mightily ticked off. What about you? What do you think?
