App Store To Include Separate Category For Explicit Content

There has been a furore over the way Apple banned a majority of iPhone apps with sexual content over the past week citing customer complaints. That has apparently not gone down well among developers who were grounded to the floor from revenues of  several thousands a day.

Now, it appears that a separate category titled ‘Explicit’ could be added to the App Store. This was discovered by developers on iTunesConnect, the platform for new app submission. However, this category only made an appearance for a short period and has since then been removed.

Apple has indicated that while they are contemplating the move, “it’s not going to happen anytime soon”. But something tells me it’s going to happen in the next couple of days!
