Thanks to the new iPhone OS 3.0 parental controls, the App Store now has its first app to feature nudity. That sure didn't take long. Macenstein first discovered Hottest Girls only yesterday, which is the app that will officially go down in App Store history as the first to feature nudity. Hottest Girls has actually been available since early May, but at that time it only featured girls in skimpy lingerie, nothing nude. Hottest Girls now features "Topless/Completely Naked Pics" according to the app description. Hottest Girls, of course, carries a strict rating of 17+ because it features "Frequent/Intense Sexual Content or Nudity" and "Frequent/Intense Mature/Suggestive Themes." This means that if parental restrictions are enabled and the app falls outside of the allowed rating, you simply won't be able to see the app. Parental restrictions can be enabled in Settings -> General -> Restrictions on your iPhone or iPod touch. You will be asked to enter a four-digit passcode to enable and disable the feature, so your child or teenager won't be able to turn off the restriction. Apparently with these new parental controls, apps will be open to all kinds of new possibilities. This has to be a welcoming sign to all of you hardworking developers out there. If you care to know, and I am certain some of you do, Hottest Girls is now available in the App Store for $1.99.
