Home Your IT Entertainment iPad to get iPorn and/or 'explicit' apps?

A news report says that the iPad app store will soon get an 'explicit' section into which the semi-adult and explicit content that was recently cleansed from the iPhone app store will go into.

Although the iPhone and iPod Touch has had its fair share of childish fart apps and wiggly bouncy bits apps, Apple's recent move to clean up the iPhone app store and remove a lot of apps deemed 'explicit' raised the eyebrows, at least, of some, while deflating the expectations of others. 

Explicit content that is properly age rated helps keep the iPhone, the iPod Touch and the iPad a family friendly device for all age groups in the family - especially if parents and guardians take the time to appropriately restrict features and capabilities in the iDevices as the mobile Apple OS allows, complete with passcode lock to prevent the kids from changing the settings themselves.

The Mac News Network has some details on this, linked to from the Mac Stories website which claims to have links and screenshots to blank 'explicit' sections within iTunes.

These are meant to be 'Top Explicit Paid Apps' and 'Top Explicit iPad Apps', and if it's all true, there'll likely be a 'Top Explicit Free Apps' section at some time, too.

Mac Stories has updated its story to say the links in question are now no longer working, but if there is indeed any truth to the stories, future iPad owners who want to get their explicit on will soon theoretically be able to get their iPad on, their apps in and their explicit out.

Explicit, of course, has a range of different meanings, so there's no guarantee any actual pornographic apps will ever make it to the iPad app store, but anyone wanting that kind of content on their iPhones is reportedly already well catered for by a range of iPhone compatible porn sites that will no doubt be iPad compatible, too.
