    It should be pulled no question – along with big questions within apple as to how it got through. Steve would never have allowed it to happen – see his interview on all things d. Apple is getting sloppy here.

    so you think apple knowingly approved the app and said, “sweet, theres some awesome porn in here.” vine was not advertising this as a porn app, so thats probably why it got through. any social network where videos and pictures are shared, people get naked; it wont end. i don’t know if this is necessarily on apple’s shoulders as each app/social network maintains their own terms of service. and stop saying things like ‘steve would never have allowed this to happen’ because that is not the case; hes wasn’t sitting there approving/disapproving apps. he had bigger shit to worry about.

    Simply put, Apple is being hypocritical about this.

    Big, established company puts out an app that can display user-generated “porn” -> no problem
    Small, new company puts out an app that can display user-generated “porn” -> must be removed immediately

    It won’t survive. Apps don’t survive this kind of publicity, neither do celebrities haha…it won’t be pulled but it won’t last.

    I specifically referenced steves policy on this discussed at the d conference, obviously he didn’t vet the apps. Apples approach was that they were deeply concerned about making sure that apps are properly vetted. Vine isn’t alone in being able to be exploited like this – a friend of mine showed me how to use an app to stream free movies of any movie available. i deleted it and reported it – Now if this type of thing can be so easily exploited it tells me that the vetting procedure either doesn’t live up to what it was put in place to do or standards are slipping. I accept that some may get through and that there is a learning curve, but this one seems obvious and it’s not alone.

    Apple should rate the aps and all aps, including Safari, should be rated unsafe for all, since you can find naked people (its ok that you can find a how to make a bomb manual, buy the componets, buy a gun, and all sorts of dangerus stuff.. but hell no to people beeing naked)
