Apple Makes App Store More Family Friendly

SUREN on February 22, 2010

As you know, we had been advising parents to turn off the App Store completely to avoid the problem of kids browsing through objectionable apps and screenshots on the App Store, let alone install these apps. Parents and educators can rest easy in this regard going forward.

Apple has, in one sweeping action this weekend, decided to retire thousands of apps that have inappropriate images from the App Store. Read the original Tipb article here, excerpt below:

Following up on last night’s story about the removal of apps with sexual content from the iTunes App Store, TiPb asked Apple for comment and they responded: 

“Whenever we receive customer complaints about objectionable content we review them. If we find these apps contain inappropriate material we remove them and request the developer make any necessary changes in order to be distributed by Apple.”

This is great news for parents concerned about their kids accessing the App Store and running into objectionable apps as a matter of routine.

Thank You Apple, for listening to your biggest fans - parents - and addressing their concerns!
