500px Returns to iOS App Store After Nudity Drama

By - Source: AppleInsider | B 6 comments

New "Report Photo" button implemented.

Toronto’s 500px app, a popular photography program that has been downloaded over a million times, has returned to the iOS store after Apple removed it over nudity issues.

500px was taken down by Apple after user complaints referenced to pornographic material. The app has now returned with an age-gate warning advising that the app is only intended for audiences who are aged 17-years or older.

In addition, the updated 500px app includes a "Report Photo" button that helps users to quickly tag photos they deem offensive.

500px co-founder Oleg Gutsol told TechCrunch that it's "worked closely" with Apple during the last week to address the latter's requests. He added that the firm carried out its own internal content audit and found no pornographic images. It's still waiting on Apple to provide specific images or complaints in order to remove the offending images.

Apple recently responded to Twitter video app Vine's 'Editor's Choice' showcasing a porn clip by removing it from the Editor's Choice section situated in the iOS App Store.

    I think he was referring to the article Zak posted.. I clicked on these articles because I still have a little hope that they contain something worth noting, but alas it was a waste of time.

    Although, it has been downloaded a million times on apple devices and was taken down for censoring reason... i guess that makes it a bit more interesting and makes me like my unlocked nexus devices even more.

    The warning icon you mention for for comments..
