    I don't see where he talks negatively about the App. He makes some general comical statements but nothing derogatory. Loose cannon much?

    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!

    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.
