Apple Removes An Innocent Boob-Jiggling App From the App Store

Remember the Wobble iPhone app? It let you add some—ahem—rather realistic jiggle to your photos. Unfortunately it's been removed from the App Store for "overtly sexual content" despite only using imported photos and not actually providing sexual content.

Apparently Wobble's developer received this not-so-sexy note from Apple regarding the app a few days ago:

Dear Glentwood pty ltd,

The App Store continues to evolve, and as such, we are constantly refining our guidelines. Your application, Wobble iBoobs (Premium Uncensored), contains content that we had originally believed to be suitable for distribution. However, we have recently received numerous complaints from our customers about this type of content, and have changed our guidelines appropriately.

We have decided to remove any overtly sexual content from the App Store, which includes your application.

Thank you for your understanding in this matter. If you believe you can make the necessary changes so that Wobble iBoobs (Premium Uncensored) complies with our recent changes, we encourage you to do so and resubmit for review.

Sincerely,
iPhone App Review

Again, this app doesn't actually appear to provide any content and only uses images you import into it, so its removal feels similar to that of ForChan, an innocent image browser. It's a sad day when Apple not only forbids me from downloading pervy pictures, but also from making my own boob pictures jiggle. A sad day indeed. [Mobile Crunch]

First they came for my jiggly boobs, and I did not speak out, because jiggly boobs are juvenile.

Then they came for the icons, because they resembled Apple's; the healthcare app, because it was political; P2P apps or front ends, because they might be used for piracy; lame apps, because of limited utility; diagnostic apps, just because; podcasting and music apps and google voice, because that's Apple's turf; the whole jailbroken world, because personalization=brings down the cell network; and a million other apps (besides web browsers) because they let you access the 90% of the internet that is porn.

And I did not speak out because hey, it's Apple's device, they can do what they want with it.

And then they threw the killswitch on "my" device — but by then, it was too late to post a bitchy tweet about it.
