    Default Apple pulls 500px app because of nudity.



    A lot of people have grown to love the 500px photography service. Unlike filtered shots of people’s food and pets, snaps served on 500px are of high quality and the built-in store means I can offer some of my best photos and earn 70 percent of the revenue from sales. The company released its iOS app last November and said more than half of its 1.5 million registered users are using 500px on their iPad. Moreover, 93 percent of return users and session times stood at 40+ minutes.

    Unfortunately, looks like Apple’s review team has an issue with the latest update because the search feature might produce some candid shots of naked men and women. This was apparently enough for the puritan Apple police to remove the 500px app from the App Store.

    Sarah Perez of TechCrunch talked to 500px COO Evgeny Tchebotarev who confirmed that 500px for iOS and its recent acquisition ISO500 have both been pulled from the Apple App Store due to concerns about nude photos.

    By default, these apps are safe, he explains:

    New users couldn’t just launch the app and locate the nude images, he says, the way you can today on other social photo sharing services like Instagram or Tumblr, for instance.

    Instead, the app defaulted to a “safe search” mode where these type of photos were hidden. To shut off safe search, 500px actually required its users to visit their desktop website and make an explicit change.
    Interestingly enough, a recent launch of iTunes in Russia was marred with porn as accessing the “more films in different languages” section in the iTunes Store resulted in links to escort services and pornographic content on the web.



    Anyways, this sounds like too drastic a measure to take, if you ask me.

    Frankly speaking, I was hoping these app rejections were behind us. After all, Apple’s been demonstrating the willingness to relax some of its stringent App Store rules over the past two years.

    But when it comes to nudity, Apple is like Disney: a safe environment for the whole family.

    The Apple brand reflects this stance. Late Apple co-founder Steve Jobs acknowledged as much, famously dissing Android in April 2010 as a non-curated environment that will happily host objectionable content.

    He said that Apple has a moral responsibility to keep porn off the iPhone.

    “Folks who want porn can buy an Android phone”, Jobs quipped.

    I’m all for keeping porn out of kids hands. Heck–I’m all for ensuring that I don’t have to see it unless I want to. But…that’s what parental controls are for. Put these types of apps into categories and allow them to be blocked by their parents should they want to.
    Still, pornography is a hard thing to avoid and Apple can cry all it wants, but that won’t change the fact that such a strict stance on adult content is one of the reasons people jailbreak their iPhones.

    They way I see it, Apple lost the battle against pornography the second they threw a web browser in there.

    So this should mean Instagram, Facebook and every other social media app where you can share photos would be pulled off. Heck Facebook released an app called Facebook Poke that's for Sexting.

    Porn makes up a large percentage of the web. You put something with internet connection out there, and a screen; you have porn.
