Apple has removed at least 5,000 apps they say are "overtly sexual" from the iPhone app store over the last week or so:
"On Thursday, February 17th, however, this number shot up to 932 removals and peaked at nearly 4000 removals on Friday, February 18th. The high number of removals has continued over the weekend as Apple continues to clear out these newly blocked apps. In speaking with Apple, ChilliFresh found out that over 5000 apps were affected, which corresponds to AppShopper's stats as of Saturday, though the higher than normal rate of removals seem to be continuing. So far, the removals represent about 3% of the total number of apps in the App Store."
Our friends over at Hunk du Jour had their app removed. Any other gay apps out there been affected? How long before Grindr goes?
