Google Glass's first porn app pulled hours after release

179

Glass got its very first porn app today, but just a few hours after its launch, the service has already been pulled from Google’s Glassware hub. The app is called Tits and Glass, and had been highly anticipated since news of its development hit last month. But Friday’s quiet revisions to Google’s Platform Developer Policies banning explicit material meant that the app, produced by adult publisher MiKandi, wasn’t long for the world. According to a post on the company’s website, the launch was still deemed a success, pulling in nearly 10,000 visitors to the Tits and Glass site, and racking up "a dozen" installs.

MiKandi is hoping to pivot and re-release the app tomorrow

MiKandi says that it thoroughly vetted the developer policy to make sure it was adhering to Google’s terms, even double checking last week, apparently unaware of Friday’s changes (it says it got no notification from Google), which in turn were likely spurred on by the buzz Glass's "first porn app" was getting online. MiKandi is hoping to pivot and re-release the app tomorrow after making some changes, although the idea of a "porn app minus the porn" doesn’t exactly set our imaginations on fire.
