Apple pulls Bang With Friends app after little over one week

updated 06:37 pm EDT, Fri May 17, 2013

Still unclear why app was removed

Apple has removed a well-publicized iPhone hookup app from the App Store after just one week of it going live, Valleywag notes. Bang With Friends, still accessible via Android and the web, lets people indicate if they'd like to have sex with a Facebook friend. Notifications are sent out only if the feeling is mutual. Since launching in January, the service has already accumulated about 1 million users.

Regarding the App Store takedown, Bang With Friends CEO Colin Hodge says that the company is "waiting to hear more from Apple as to why," and trying to get the app back up. While Apple is typically strict about enforcing App Store guidelines, it's not clear which if any guidelines Bang With Friends might be violating. Other well-known hookup apps, such as Grindr, are still available.
