Apple Yanks Naughty Cities App From iTunes Store

LONDON — Only a week after receiving approval, Apple has yanked the Naughty Cities app from the iTunes store.

According to a Naughty Cities post, Apple said in a phone call that it pulled the app because it had received complaints regarding the (adult) concept.

"Unfortunately we can't get any serious results after five days that we were on the market," Naughty Cities said.

Last week it appeared as though the company was on a roll after receiving the green light from the Android app store just a month before.

Naughty Cities' free app — developed by Naughty Labs —  provides listings for adult categories by city, which currently includes London and New York, and includes geo-targeted advertising.

The Apple inclusion was heralded as a coup as only a handful of adult apps have cracked iTunes including OhMiBod Remote, a personal massager interface and some other tamer sexual position and game apps.

Naughty Labs’ Antonis Argyros told XBIZ last week that the company wanted to add a new city every month, with Berlin and Los Angeles next in line.
