App Store considering "explicit" option

But it won't appear "any time soon".

Apple's considering offering an "explicit" category to developers using the App Store

This appeared briefly after the purge of all titillating content on the App Store. But no sooner had Gizmodo been alerted to the "explicit" option than Apple had removed it.

In response, Apple said the "explicit" category was something being thought about but that it would "not happen any time soon".

Apple wiped the App Store clean of any smutty and even remotely risque content earlier this week, stating that the interests of kids and parents had to come first.

Maybe there's been some backlash.
