Bang With Friends Removed from Apple App Store

Controversial Facebook based app, Bang with Friends, got the boot from Apple’s app store. Since January, the app has garnered plenty of negative attention and one knock-off called Bang with Nobody (actually a Google Plus stab). Apple did not comment on why the app was removed, but it’s safely assumed that the app violated  Apple’s sense of decency with the pornographic nature of the app. Perhaps Apple is not “down to bang.”

Bang with Friends’ graphic logo was recently switched to its benign acronyms on Facebook as a means to appease Facebook’s policy so similar tactics might work for Apple, though it seems that the company’s “puritanical porn policy” may keep it out indefinitely.

What do you think? Should customers be concerned with Apple’s authority in removing apps that millions of users may want?
