    Apple may have approved the SugarSugar app, and serving sizes don't come in teaspoons. Unless that's your kinda thing...

    Zdnet is reporting SugarSugar, a Sugar Daddy dating website, is claiming their iPhone app has been approved and will be available via the App Store in June. It appears the round table of elders in Castle Cupertino, who decide which apps to knight and which apps hang, have been letting the jesters run the roost.

    I'm sure approving the app was a difficult process. Why, with verbiage like "The world's most effective and discreet place for finding Sugar Daddy and Sugar Baby Relationships" or "for me looking to spoil, and dynamic women looking or financial support with bills, or who just need some excitement in life," plastered on the site, I can understand how one would assume this is a legitimate business.

    Or fancy prostitution.

    Make no mistake, SugarSugar.com is an escort service. The site's most recent blog entry gives prospective Sugar Babies some good advice:

    "Attention sugar daddies and fellow sugar babies, your babies DO NOT belong in your dating profiles with you. What's so hot about a mom with her baby? Not much, except that it holds wieght for more responsibility for a pot SD. Do you know how scary that can be for sugar daddies?"
    Right. Sucker the rich SOB into dating you, take his money, buy some diapers and hopefully get knocked up by him. Perfect plan, who needs college?

    Back to the app I forgot I was talking about. SugarSugar claims their new location-based app "is designed to provide Sugar Daddies and Sugar Babies with a quick, effective and discreet way to locate one another as they go about their every-day lives."

    I guess this app getting approved isn't THAT big of a surprise. After all you can download the Ashley Madison app, which helps married individuals start affairs, "Life is short. Have an affair."

    It's only natural that the world's oldest profession evolve with the smartphone revolution. I mean Square hands out their card readers for free. But, still I can't help but laugh at the hypocrasy of the app approval process. Expect SugarSugar to be shot down before its June release date.

      But you're missing the point ... there is precedent. This is not the first app of it's ilk to hit the app store, and just because you don't approve of the service or the outcome of using the app doesn't mean it's wrong. Grindr allows you to find other men to hook up and have sex ... Ashley Madison allows you to go outside the confines of your marriage for some strange ... so what.

      This is not news worthy and is really a waste of time.
      IMO, you can not compare a site/app that provides "toys" with a site/app that provides the "service".

      Anyways, tell me another app that supports "escorts" (aka hookers) on the app store, just one!
      Craigslist is a place where you can pickup "escorts" but that's not what the site/app is for, just an option, which they DO NOT support.
      Ashley Madison is an site/app for "hookups" not "hookers", not the same kind of app.

      So this is valid news. If you recall Apple denied Playboy, and that app wasn't for "services"!!

      Everyone has an opinion, but damn man, take a valium, calm down, and if you don't like what you read skip it and move to the next news item. If you don't like any, move to a different site!

I mean, I can order porn and sex toys from Amazon ... is that wrong, too? Give me a break.
      Homosex ual is not a profane word, nor a derogatory term. It is a politically correct, and scientifically correct term for the definition we know it to mean. Why in the HELL would that word be censored? I can understand censoring swear words on your website, and definitely censoring racial slurs, but Homosex ual? (Spaces obviously need to defeat a BS censor)

      Swanson, this is a NEWS SITE not an EDITORIAL. Keep you're damn opinions to yourself. News is to inform, not to throw in your two cents that no one cares for. If people want to use this app let them use it. If some rich guy knocks up a girl and she takes his money that's his fault. He should have known better.

      Isn't that the point of any online dating service, something beneficial for both parties whether it be long-term or short-term? If ppl want to hook-up then that's their choice. Apple's not letting anything illegal happen so I don't see what the big deal is.

      Tell me the last news article you read that didn't have any bias or writer opinion in it. Writer's like to weave their own views in with what they write, it happens. And if you don't care at all about his opinion then when do you come to place where the sole purpose is for people to come and state their opinion on things.

      Pimping, apparently, is easy.

      Maybe it's just me, but every article by Philip that I read so far has "anti-apple" written all over it. And if you cannot see the irony inherent to it's references to appstore approval process on this one, well... maybe that's why you are so intrigued about my comment.

      I really dig ModMyi as a source of information, but when information is given contaminated by biased opinions from the article's author it's just plain bad journalism, IMHO.

      I have to agree. I happen to live somewhere where prostitution is legal. And an article written in this FOX News manner of "we'll tell you what's right and wrong" is kind of effed, dude.

      It honestly sounds like every other hookup app. The theme is just Sugar. Trust me, you can pimp and hoe just fine with any of the other apps you find less offensive.

      Good reporters are OBJECTIVE.
