    Apple has this odd restrictive policy it seems. I've done some poking around and while they have a rating system in place for more mature-themed games, it's rare that any of them are approved. In fact, so far, I've only seen one - Amateur Surgeon- that falls in their 17+ category (and it's put out by Adult Swim). I also found the following article:

    http://www.pcworld.com/article/id,159887/article.html

    that goes into detail on games that were never approved or approved and then yanked. What's going on Apple? R-rated films and music with explicit lyrics are just fine, but god-forbid you have a game with political satire or "adult-themes"?

    And don't get me wrong, I'm NOT promoting the idea of porn on the iPhone. Games like iSniper are a step in the right direction, but honestly, it's a somewhat lame game IMHO.

    I think allowing porn apps would give them a bad reputation.

    apple will NEVER allow porn in the appstore since so many people fake their age for accounts and they would be letting millions of people under 18 download it and get a lot of parents pissed. they would also get a bad reputation for making it easily available.

    Apple should allow any app as long as it doesn't contain porn or somthing that can harm your ipod

    well when bioshock comes out i'm sure there will be alot of violence in it, which may inspire other "mature" games to be released.
