Apple: “No iBoobs for you!” - Macenstein

Apple: “No iBoobs for you!”

Apple may have loosened up its restrictions on iPhone farting applications (allowing over 20 of them through this week alone) and it may have introduced a whole new “17+” category to house a slew of new bloody and violent titles as well, but apparently sex is still off the table. Apple has rejected what is possibly the greatest iPhone application of all time – iBoobs by Mystic Game Development.

Above: My God, I would have paid $1000 for this application.

The fact that Apple has rejected iBoobs has me a little baffled since it could be argued that this is exactly the type of app the iPhone’s touch screen was designed for. In Apple’s rejection letter to Mystic, Apple claims:

“Applications must not contain any Obscene, pornographic, offensive or defamatory content or materials of any kind (text, graphics, images, photographs, etc.), or other content or materials that in Apple’s reasonable judgment may be found objectionable by iPhone or iPod touch users.”

OK, So of course the big question is, who would find this work of art objectionable?
Secondly, if you are offended by the app, can’t you just not buy it? It’s not like it comes free on every iPhone.

If Apple cares so much about virtual bikinis being viewed on the iPhone, why doesn’t force Safari to block 90% of the internet, and only let iPhone users visit sites like Disney and Nickelodeon? I’ll tell you why, because those site use FLASH, that’s why!

Thanks to faithful Macenstein reader Chris for the tip!

    This is a sad day for iPhone / iPod Touch users all over the world. Maybe in two months they will let it through like the farts, but I’m not getting my hopes. 🙁

  2. Killer's Dad says:

    With iBoobs, there would be no reason to go to the local “Girls, Girls, Girls XXX Showcase.

    Jobs is just listening to the Mobsters and avoiding interfering with their business model.

    “If Apple cares so much about virtual bikinis being viewed on the iPhone, why doesn’t force Safari to block 90% of the internet”

    a) 90% of the internet doesn’t contain virtual bikinis and
    b) You have to navigate by choice to the sites that do.

    I think the point is that there are now a slew of new apps on the iTunes store that cold be offensive to parents. The fact that you have to pay for them, and be an adult in some cases, should be enough so that the rest of us do not have to suffer for a couple prudish parents who should be in charge of what their kids buy anyway.

  5. kam says:


    you are a moron.

    a) 90% of the internet is Porn. You are an idiot.
    b) Yes, and you also have to download this APPLICATION by choice.

    Congratulations KA. You are complete and utter dilution of the gene pool who cannot grasp simple concepts and understandings. Your mother must be proud. Now go play with traffic you darwinan flaw.

  6. tz says:

    I so want to move the phone in circles, and turn it upside own and sideways too! And what happens when you touch them?
    Geez Apple, it is not like they are bare, there is a swim top/whatever.. And it could be even more controversial, imagine a male gay version!

  7. MacSheikh says:

    Lets face it. The most important question on everyone’s mind is:

    Does it react accordingly if i use my thumb and finger to squeeze it?

    What and baywatch was OKAY?

    @ kam

    “90% of the internet is Porn. You are an idiot.”

    Were you being serious? I can’t tell. Anyway, choosing a random keyword:

    “Yes, and you also have to download this APPLICATION by choice.”

    The point is that I know some people who have given iPod touches[?] to their kids. I know people WOULD complain to Apple if something like this was being thrown in their face – particularly with the search cheats people are using.

    In addition, there is no way to navigate to porn sites accidentally, but for various reasons people could find this application accidentally, which would be enough to spark angry letters which I suspect Apple don’t like.

    Of course, the best option would be to allow blocking – or better, enabling – of certain parts of the App Store in parental controls

  10. Rowlings says:

    @KA, are you serious? “there is no way to navigate to porn sites accidentally, but for various reasons people could find this application accidentally”
    The domain was a porn site until recently. Think a kid might have looked that up for a report? Try doing a google image search for something as innocuous as the word “girl”. Naked breasts a plenty. It is impossible to keep kids from stumbling ACCIDENTALLY across porn on the web. It is a fact of life of the modern era. But PG-13 content like iBoobs, as long as they charged for it so a kid could not buy it without parental help, then it should be allowed. All the “real” porn on the web is free. This is goofy adolescent humor like the fart apps.

  11. KA says:


    Yeah, I was being stupid there.

    “as long as they charged for it so a kid could not buy it without parental help”

    How, out of interest?

  12. Big League Chew says:

    How a male version with a swinging dick?

  13. Not a moron says:

    A slew of morons not understanding why censorship exists. I wouldn’t bother wasting your time with them KA.

  14. Not a moron says:

    It would be very difficult for Apple to censor the internet, and it’s not really their job to so. But they feel responsible for the content of their own app store, and feel that this material is objectionable. While this might upset the minority of complete nerds who are dying to see animated breasts, it allows others to feel confident that the app store contains suitably moderated material.

  15. meme says:

    They didnt release it because it was pornographic, it was because to females it could be seen as offensive or defamatory.

  16. ispitonyourgrave says:

    Wow. So many creepy little geeks in one place. Maybe one day a real lady might let you touch her…

  17. Smarter than you says:

    Women might find this offensive ay? I’m guessing that’s by the ones who don’t measure up to this imaginary cartoon depiction. See a theatipist and get over your insecurities.

    I understand the censorship deal but you can take it too far which is what the comments are trying to convey here. I’m sure the people who think this app is obscene and should be rightfully censored are the same who believe obscene sex acts are fine so long as done within marriage. God is ok with you getting reamed in the ass as long as it’s after you’re married.

  18. papas says:

    I hope this guys are smart enough to read the NDA….

  19. Moises says:

    Are there any plans to release it on cydia or installer??? Than app is so cool

  20. god says:

    the world would be such a better place..not just with being able to make decisions like adults and have things easily available to people who can make their own decisions on what to buy…
    but by just getting rid of people who stand against such freedoms…cant we just kill people like KA? someone who merlely exists to annoy others; lets call it pest control/

  21. Suzanne says:

    Come on…if you have to have a discussion about this, you clearly have not left middle school. Grow up! And no I don’t need a version of male balls dancing around to somehow feel vindicated or to “lighten up” Geez…

  22. Clifford says:

    Why would Apple want to associate themselves with something so juvenile and offensive to women? You people are shmucks.

  23. Paul says:

    Chasps! The boobs sexualise woman in a way that portraying men as dicks only would. As beautiful as breasts are its a private thing…and believe it or not many women (not all) find this boob stuff offensive. So why would Apple offend up to 50% of its potential clients?
    Similarly many may find having guys whacked in the “sensitive areas” funny, but leaves some chasps cringing in pseudo pain.
    Chaps and Chapettes lets just get over it.

  24. omg says:

    if you find it offensive, don’t fucking buy it! but don’t you take the decision from me, weirdo.

    apple sucks for so many reasons.

  25. Jenn says:

    I’m a woman. I don’t find this app any more offensive then women in bikinis on the beach.

    This discussion reminds me of the Janet Jackson debate. No one saw her boob until the news hashed it out over and over. Boob smoob. But I found Budweiser’s gale-force horse fart commercial disgusting. Which one displays worse taste?

    Paul – exactly – boobs sexualise women. Women have boobs! Bathroom signs sexualise women because women wear skirts. I don’t want to be gender neutral! I like my skirts and boobs.

    As far as kids looking at boobs… parents are afraid that other parents will call and say “your kid showed my kid boobs.” It worries me that we continue to shame our kids for their natural curiosity.

  26. Squee says:

    Alright, let’s get a few things on the table.

    1. I’m female. If I had an iPhone and this was available, I would so buy it. My boyfriend would love me for it, but that’s not why I would buy it. Just saying.

    2. Why the hell are kids getting iPhones? Why are kids getting $400 phones that will become complete garbage in a year or so? Are the this spoiled? If so, a pair of boobs might be a good thing for them. Can’t harm them much more than if they’re getting everything anyhow.

    3. Make it so the people who are buying this have to have the credit card in their name and cannot use gift cards. How’s that? Would that not work? Yes, it would stop some legit adults from purchasing it, but it would also stop 14 year olds who don’t have a credit card from purchasing it and showing it to 10 year olds who go and tell their parents. That’s how porn shops work online, you have to have a credit card in your name. Trust me, I know this too.

    What this most likely is, is Apple trying to keep themselves clean so places like Disney want to work with them. But it’s still ridiculous.

  27. Booby says:

    They made a mistake to show boobs. Buy Wobble – its more fun! It works also with schlongs, eyes, ears, coffee in a cup etc. 🙂

  28. Eugene says:

    Well, it’s not the end of the world. Some guys created iGirl. It’s an application that let’s you have a girl with big breasts in your phone. I saw a couple of video reviews. She looks funny )
