Yep, iPorn Is Here For The iPhone

Just as we were speculating a couple nights ago, Apple has apparently
decided that with the new parental controls now built into the iPhone
3.0 SDK, nudity is now okay in iPhone apps. The first such app,
Hottest Girls, has actually been around for a little while. But an
update today "upgraded" the pictures from girls in bikinis and
lingerie, to topless and completely naked girls.

"We uploaded nude topless pics today. This is the first app to have
nudity," Hottest Girls' developer Allen Leung tells Macenstein. Quite
an accomplishment.

While some will undoubtedly see this as a bad thing, I think this is
actually a good thing. First of all, allowing mature content like this
should free up the App Store screeners to be able to focused on
finding apps that are actually malicious or out of line, rather than
being prude-police.
