    As long as it doesn't show up when I search for something not related to that, I don't mind.
    I did mind when all of the categories were flooded with random girl apps.

    they should have it so that explict apps DON'T appear anywhere unless you search or if you go to the special explict category.

    Originally I concluded that Apple was gong to allow NC-17 apps, but I guess you're right. The existing ones will go to the "Explicit" category now, and as long as Apple keeps explicit apps out of the top 25 list and other categories, this would be a good thing.

    When is this going to happen? And does that mean they will have 18+ apps?

    The 'Explicit' category has since been removed.
