Naughty Loaded Dice denied
Trichotomy Media is complaining that its Naughty Loaded Dice iPhone app has, possibly, been quietly rejected by Apple. The app has yet to receive an approval or a rejection after a month, and should therefore still be sitting in Apple's queue. The company notes that although the app does focus on bedroom activity, it still stays clear of any profanity or explicit images.
Apple has drawn considerable controversy over sex-related apps, as a result of inconsistent policies. A pornographic title, Hottest Girls, was recently approved by Apple, but later removed in spite of clear warning labels and the presence of parental controls in the iPhone 3.0 firmware. By contrast, an e-book app was initially rejected for referencing the Kama Sutra, but then approved following media controversy.
If Naughty Loaded Dice is accepted by Apple, Trichotomy expects to sell it for $2.
