    Result of desperation to boost app numbers

    If you don't want to see them or similar crap, go to content settings and knock it down to 'Mature' or lower. The default setting is 'Adult'

    Can't believe RIM approved these apps, Zero Sum did a great job by introducing Comix but flooding the app world with girls in bikinis not very good idea.
    Is anyone gonna purchase these app?

    Stop whining. Change your profile. Encourage rim to put adult stuff in a separate category. Yes people do buy.

    That's NOT porn. There's no porn or nudity whatsoever.

    Are you people living under a rock? Use the filters as suggested! The PlayBook, is a porn lovers DREAM, expecially the way it handles flash. Sites that the iDevices, and even most Android devices balk at the PB handles with ease, it's a dirty old man's dream!

    So, you wouldn't mind them putting kiddie porn on here as long as people set their ratings lower? After all, you didn't have any standards.

    Irrelevant. It's still sexual content.

    people dont know what they want. An open device or a closed device. Deal with what it is. If your worried about kids, change the rating allowance and dont give them your password to make purchases.

    People will complain about a couple bikini pictures, but what about the stuff that's on free TV these days, not even pay TV. Would you yell at your cable/satellite company for showing adult shows on your GUIDE? Put things into perspective...

    I have started looking at Device Service. Haven't checked all the details but it looks like one can lock down a child's PlayBook as much as one wants using Device Service.

    I could care less if adult content appears on App World or not; each to their own.

    What I do find ironic though is that these items are showing up on App World yet when Zinio first launched, there were a number of adult oriented magazines that were not available until the Playbook community complained loudly on forums/twitter. It was even more ironic that in Zinio's case, it wasn't even the pornography magazines that were unavailable but magazines dealing with motorcycles, tatoo art, and glbt literature/news.

    Thankfully, this has now been mostly dealt with but I can't help but wonder why there was an issue in the first place with Zinio given what has recently appeared in App World.

    I don't think the OP is complaining about the content being inappropriate because it's about nudity or porn, but rather the poor quality of apps that keep pouring into App World.
    Or at least that's how I feel.

    You are now the dumbest person on the forums... I never thought I'd say that to anyone. What a stupid comparison - illegal, immoral content versus legal, somewhat creepy porn apps.

    Stop using bag logic in arguments - now. Cause you seem to be the kind of person that compares everyone to Hitler in order to win an argument on the Internet.

    Grow up.

    OH NOES!!! Dirty pictures. Smut peddlers!!! Every underage kid with his own PlayBook and BBID or that has unattentive/uncaring parents with a PlayBook will suffer now...

    All the bible "apps" should be classified as ebooks too. How many of those are going to keep flooding App World?

    I agree that it would be nice if RIM would keep a level of integrity that does not include "porn" even if it's "soft porn". Porn has destroyed lives, marriages and impacts young minds in a negative way. "All that glitters is not gold, some are painted rocks that break bones"

    Well, for me, I just set my filters and my opinion on RIM took a little hit to the ribs.

    In a free society, one in which as an adult I am ultimately responsible for my own actions, decisions, and any consequences derived therein, no company, person, church, politician, religious authority, government agency, or CRTC for those of us in Canada , has the right to tell me what I can and can not view, watch, listen to, or purchase.

    Censorship is never the way to go. As you indicated, you set your filters and if people are concerned with certain material on App World, they should avail themselves to using the tools RIM has provided to filter this material out.

    But RIM is not in a position, nor has it been given permission, nor as it been given the authority, to act as my moral censor and moral compass whereby it decides what I am allowed to view. That responsibility is mine alone.
