    Default Playboy App Not Changing Apple's Strict Content Policy


    The blogosphere has been buzzing this week with news of Playboy's forthcoming "uncensored" iPad app, in which current and archived content from the popular men's magazine will be made available to users of Apple's touchscreen tablet. But one critical piece of information has been absent in virtually all of the reports chronicling this development - a formal comment from Apple regarding its longstanding and strict content policy.

    Earlier this week, publisher Hugh Hefner tweeted: "Big news! Playboy -- both old & new -- will be available on iPad beginning in March." While the entire catalog will be available uncensored, no one initially knew if Apple had sanctioned the app or if a dedicated reader of sorts will be the mechanism by which Playboy magazine will be available on the iPad. It now appears that the archive alluded to will be displayed via a Web page - a clever way to skirt Apple's stringent app content restrictions.

    Consequently, at this time there is no evidence to suggest that a major overhaul of Apple's policy and App Licensing agreement is ahead. Could a tweak or an exception be made to the policy by Apple? In a heartbeat. But those who are reporting that Apple may be on the verge of ushering in the era of graphic adult material on the iPad have absolutely no basis for making this argument.

    On numerous occasions, Apple Chief Executive Steve Jobs has pointed to pornography as a major reason for the App Store approval process. In 2010, Jobs took a subtle jab at the "porn store" available via Google's Android mobile operating system. "That's a place we don't want to go, so we're not going to," Jobs said. And it's unlikely that's going to change, even as Jobs departs for yet another medical leave of absence.

    Aww dude that is sweet, I've ALWAYS wanted Playboy magazines but I didn't know where to hide them >_<

    So this isn't a app but through Safari? I don't think Apple would have allowed a app that shows hot naked chics. I for one may get an iPad 2nd gen and one of the first things I will do is check out Playboy.

    That was sarcastic, right? I couldn't imagine anyone posting that seriously and keeping their dignity.

    Ya i dont see anything wrong with it, you can go to a porn site just as easy, and if you say you dont, or never have your lying. Most of them support HTML5 so no need for flash.

    Does Playboy even actually QUALIFY as porn anymore with all the other mags out there that are more explicit? I stopped reading Playboy for the chicks and started reading it for the articles back in the '90s! And let's be honest: the majority of Playboy's readers are most likely women these days. Just sayin'...

    I'm not saying I want to live in a world where you can't, I'm just saying I can't see why someone would admit to being excited.

    The problem with porn apps is they will ******* become a virus!!!! They will be everywhere!!!! Remember when apple allowed those stupid apps with bikini girls? Those apps were garbage!!!! It was better to go to a website and look that stuff up. I just dont want to go looking for an app and then there 2 games and 10 porn apps. No pls. You want to see that go to safari or pc,mac and browse it. Still if you dont want to go to your home computer then look for a website that supports HTML5. You dont need flash to see your perverted content
