Bang With Friends Has Returned to the App Store

The controversial app Bang With Friends, which lets Facebook users find out which of their friends are interested in having sex with them, has returned to Apple’a App Store under a new name.

The new app is called Down. It’s basically like the old app, a way to find out which Facebook friends are down to hook up, but it’s a little more subtle this time around. Users must give the app permission to access their Facebook friends. Once they are logged in, they can indicate which Facebook friends they’d be “down” with and when both friends have selected the other, both will get a message.

The original Bang with Friends app was removed from the App Store back in May. Apple did not explain why, but Apple has been known to have strict policies against content that is at all pornographic. There was also a privacy loophole as Facebook users could check out which of their friends had installed the app. The new app promises to be completely private, but we shall wait and see.
