  • On again off again on… Apple removes “Explicit” category from iPhone dev tools.

    Well, that was a short lived "fix". The new explicit App Store category that was displayed yesterday has been effectively killed, for now. To many who were part of the 5,000 victims of the boobie ban of 2010, such a category seemed like a warm welcome. It seems that at this point however, Apple is fresh out of "warm loving feelings" for the "others" in the App world. To fall back on, there is that comment Gizmodo garnered from Apple in response to a distraught iPhone developer that stated: "...
  • After all the Boobie banning, there is a twist — Apple working on “Explicit” app category.

    Want a direct 180 from what we were told late last week and into this week as to the "Great Boobie Ban of 2010"? If you somehow managed to miss the news, Apple went on a puritan rampage last week, removing somewhere just south (or north, depending on where you get your fill) of 5,000 "sexy apps" that were...too sexy for the app store. Apple said complaints from women for women and of course children spurred the removal. Never mind the fact that there are parental controls, and above all else,...
  • Handango assimilated by PocketGear. New “uber store” 140,000+ apps strong.

    It's always fun to look back in time to the world in which it was even only a few short years ago. (Besides, a few short years ago is like a decade or two in tech years). So what was the mobile app scene like? Handango and PocketGear wear "the" mobile app stores. The big draw was that their respective app libraries were massive, in part because of the countless mobile platforms all supported under one roof. That multi-platform, app goodness has just received a fresh kick in the rear as Pock...
  • SD app storage comes to WinMo 6.0+

    Well, time to be envious Android users. Microsoft has upped the ante on *stock* features out the door by now allowing Windows Marketplace apps to be installed on SD cards. Android users have been after such a thing for some time now. But if you are fairly knowledgeable around 1's and 0's, adding in said feature after the fact isn't too hard. So perhaps more of a "draw" is in order, no? Either way, WinMo users who are sticking with older hardware and looking at a near future without any Wi...
  • WTF?! Apple orders all apps > “G” expunged. Continues to push iPhone platform further into irrelevance.

    Since way back in 2007, Apple has been pretty strict about sexual content in the App Store. At first there was just cause -- there wasn't really any easy or robust measures set in place to protect the kiddies from the horrors of nipples and wieners. Then came OS 3.0 and better parental controls. It even got to the point that Apple was starting to switch sides by approving iBoob and iBabe app to the joy of many iPhoners alike. But just as fast as it all started, it's ending -- a burning, cras...

    **Update: Personal account of the sholes.info drama here. Frequent the custom DROID ROM scene? If so, there's a high probability you've heard of the Sholes team and sholes.info at least once. First, a quick back story... They are an awesome custom ROM droid development team that develops one of the best custom DROID ROMs. A few weeks back, the Sholes team, together with developer Scott Anderson released SMUpdater, an awesome auto-download/install app for Sholes.info ROM users. Long...
  • Apple backtracks on mature apps. Boobs & butts getting sent packin’

    For all the flack Apple receives on about App Store policies, one of the more prominent issues was the restrictions on sexual content in the App Store. Now, some will say good riddance, and that such vulgar content isn't needed. Buuuut...that's what the whole 17+ restriction is for. Not to mention, if you don't like something, don't look at it/seek it out. With all that said, the developer of "Wobble iBoobs" (figure it out) has come forward and shared his recent rejection after the fact by A...
  • iPhone download cap raised to 20MB. Is it enough?
    by Mike
    Posted February 18th, 2010 at 12:59 pm
    When your employer comes to you and says they're going to double your income, you're pretty stoked, right? Of course. So when Apple subtly bumps up the data cap on iPhone downloads from 10MB to 20MB, happiness should also consume your soul should it not? Though even at 2x my previous capacity, I'm still finding 20MB to be rather limited. With many iPhone apps easily surpassing 20, 50, and even 100MB, is higher 20MB cap really make that much of a difference? Personally, I wouldn't mind seein...
  • Facebook Zero: The social network of 2002 back from the dead.

    The mobile internet is becoming an ever increasing see of video, pictures, audio, and all types of other junk thrown in. Come to think of it, the mobile internet is becoming a carbon copy of the traditional desktop internet. To many, that is a very good thing. For those still stuck browsing the mobile web on older smartphones and lesser featured phones with WAP browsers, the internet itself has turned into that infamous "bag of hurt". Facebook feels your pain. Today at MWC, Facebook develo...
  • Ericsson and Opera team up to announce an App Store no one will ever use…willingly: The “eStore”.

    Besides world hunger, rampant diseases, and a good chunk of the world ready to slit the others' throat, the most obvious thing that we need at this point is another app store. While Apple's App Store certainly has it's fair share of problems -- as does the Android Market, RIM's App World, Windows Marketplace, Nokia's Ovi Store, and Palm's App Catalog to name the most prominent and relevant -- it seems someone else thinks they can do us consumers better. Except this time, the person launching t...
