Microsoft to get the mop out and clean out those mucky apps
Microsoft, the kind of software developer that is so ashamed of human flesh that it has a bath with its clothes on, has issued Windows Phone developer guidelines that vow to crack down on mucky apps in the Windows Phone Marketplace.
The virtual shop already doesn't allow "content that a reasonable person would consider to be adult or borderline adult content", but that isn't enough. Bill Gates & Co want to get all angry on 'racy' things. Changes must be made! And they're going to make them!
So what are they doing? We'll let them speak:
"Our content policies are clearly spelled out: we don't allow apps containing 'sexually suggestive or provocative' images or content", Todd Brix, Microsoft senior director for Windows Marketplace said in a blog post.
"We will be paying more attention to the icons, titles, and content of these apps and expect them to be more subtle and modest in the imagery and terms used," he continued. "Apps that don't fit our standard will need to be updated to remain in the store. This is about presenting the right content to the right customer and ensuring that apps meet our standards."
No boobs for you dirty buggers then.
