An iPhone application that claims to have the first explicit content has been approved in the Apple App Store. The application, called "Hottest Girls," features photos of topless women and is branded with a 17-and-over restriction for "frequent/intense sexual content or nudity" and "frequent/intense mature/suggestive themes."
The app marks the first instance that we've noted of explicit content being made available since Apple added parental controls to the newest version of its mobile operating system, iPhone OS 3.0.
In May, there were hints of how explicit Apple would let developers go, when a newspaper application depicting a topless woman was denied from the Store. Developers of that application were sent a notice suggesting they resubmit the request when the parental controls were made live. [via EngadgetMobile
