    [quote=~rage;5350442]But there are a LOT of apps that are as "harmful" as this one in the app store right now that don't have all these age verification measures you say this one should have. All they have is that "You must be 17+ to download warning" and that's all. Shouldn't we demand those to be pulled to? And what about Facetime? Shouldn't Apple disable it, too because though it may be to a lesser extent, there's still the possibility for abuse.

    I agree that he has some issues of his own.... as posted at the beginning of his post "that he didn't want to disclose", but in regards to facetime, it is a little different. OK.... A LOT DIFFERENT!!! It's a complete stranger. Don't get me wrong here. Uncle Chester could pull a stunt, hahahaha, but that's not a great comparisson to iChatr. Sorry! But, you know i'm right.

    And as for "sami4021", if a verification for age needed were as simple as you put it, then you need some age verification yourself. If you can open your little mind enough that maybe, just maybe, an app could be required to have the iphone's user login AND password to access such an app, then we might not lose such usefull apps that are inteneded for "US", not just anyone who uses our phone/ipod/ipad.

    Just my opinion. I definately feel that this app should still be here. Just think that if it were created with more thoughtfulness of who might get a hold of it, and how to keep it away from those who are not capable of knowing the difference.

    Thanks for the recomendation man...I had no idea these apps even existed. I thought the camera would only work with facetime. This is wild! It's funny I only saw a few guy cams and all of them said "nohomo" on their cams and then the rest were all girls doing stupid things.

    We could argue all day over facetime but instead I'll concede to you that point, good sir =P Because tho their is still that possibility, it's slim

    But as to you last point, there is really no way to make it child-proof. With any 'pen-pal'-esque, random person meeting style app there will never be a way to weed out the crazies and the creepers from the start. As a developer, all you can do is rely on common sense, in general and provide people with a way to disconnect from those who abuse the service and ideally, someway to a.) report the person or their IP and/or b.) block them from coming into contact with said abuser. To expect anything else would be an unfair burden.

    Probably a group of liberal psychopath mothers got together and "empowered" one another at their weight watchers class, and said. "THIS APP IS INAPPROPRIATE" and they did some kind of online protest. Like for example. Emailing the ACLU " Thats if they even have computers " Then Steve jobs being a weird tool as he is. Ordered his cyber world police to take it down.


    Apple. Sometimes you can eat a d1ck.

I could care less about this stupid app and the douchebags that yank their wanks to random people, but at the same time wont get all emo over something so damn petty in life over sexual expression regardless of what YOU dopes think about it. Go tell Jesus how you feel and stop crying. Hypocrites. Close the app or dont use it. Simple, like your minds.
    Lol @ you randomly finding a way to sneak in some anti religious nonsense on a message board where a few people are stating opinions on an iPhone application

    Keep fighting the good fight there buddy

    If there was a way to make it kid proof that would be fine by me. Parents would need to be mindful of this app regardless and keep tabs on this so their kids aren't stalked by some gross perv

    Other than that, we're all adults we can choose to simply not use the app and life would go on

    If you didn't understand my reasoning for undeveloped/ possibly unavailable way to at least have a way to keep children from logging in to such apps, then we're getting nowhere in this conversation. I hope that you see where I'm REALLY coming from! I don't want to see it gone. Just think that if the devs of this app where to take this into consideration, then we probably wouldn't be having this discussion in the first place.

    Are you not with me that apps that could be damaging could use a little more protection than general apps such as facebook, FaceTime, or other apps in this category?

    I'm down for freedom of speech, freedom of expression, and if what others want, freedom of c0ck in their face, it should have some steeper restrictions.

    Devs may need to have a new rule to imply in order to publish.

    Like I said befor it's just my opinion.

    Anyways, I have to work in 4 hours. I need a little sleep before I go off on some absolute stranger.

    Apple are doing what they have to. The media loves to circle around Apple like vultures and they would love to start a story of how Apple lets kids watch random penises from an App and then blow it out of proportion, and ignore the fact that the same can be done on any other internet capable device, or explain that this is what Parental Control is for.
    If I was Apple, I'd pull these Apps too, not because of their content but because of the inevitable clusterfúck that the media would turn it into to.

    Oy, some of you have some really awful ways of defending your stances on censorship. This app was one of the less sleazy in my opinion. Granted, I never actually used the app, but I have seen plenty of screenshots from random disgustingness off of ChatRoulette to know exactly what was going on here.

    You talk about stalkers and pervs ... This is one of the ONLY apps, filled with inappropriate users, that DIDN'T include distance between users. 98% of the 'social networking' perv filled apps include a way to know approximately how far you are from the people you are talking to. There are at least 20-30 more apps out there that show just as much as ChatRoulette did, that have been around since the 3g was released. I actually think some might have even been around for the first gen phones.

    People need to learn how to use parental controls. It is not the media, or the corporate giants that should have to teach our children wrong from right. That is where a lot of our problems today come from in the first place. I can guarantee that prime time television has corrupted more kids than this app even came close to touching.

    This really brings new meaning to using an iPhone 4 with a "death grip," "holding it the wrong way," and "touching it on the bottom left corner." And that it would work better with a case on it. There's no end to the puns...
