Apple To App Store Users: No Banging For You

Apple has recently decided users of its App Store shouldn’t be “Banging.”

The Bang With FriendsFacebook app has been removed from Apple’s App Store for unexplained reasons. If you go into the App Store and search for “BWF Official,” it won’t be there. In fact, in place of its original location, you instead get an error message stating, “The item you’ve requested is not currently available in the [US] Store.” The web page for Bang With Friends also says, “Be right back.”

It seems from the information we have that the app may simply need some tweaking before it’s ready for the public, but that shouldn’t be enough to stop us from using it anyway. Glitchy apps are almost the norm if you really look at the comments on most of them. After all, if they had intended to completely remove it, why is there a message saying it would be right back?

Bang With Friends is a Facebook application that allows people to discreetly let others know they would do the nasty with them. And if you’re not interested, you will never know. Of course that didn’t work so well for people who started using it too early, as the app overrided the privacy settings to let all of their friends know they were using it. That certainly wouldn’t come up at a family get-together with that one person who can’t keep a secret to save their life.

Apple is known to remove and ban applications that don’t meet its guidelines, but with the use of discretion that Bang With Friends is supposedly known for, it doesn’t seem like that big a problem.

Apple has not responded to requests for comment on its removal of Facebook‘s Bang With Friends from its App Store. We’re guessing some uptight people might have flagged it enough to get it reviewed for continued use. Of course, that’s just speculation.

Why do you think Apple removed Bang With Friends from its App Store?
