Microsoft to get the mop out and clean out those mucky apps

2 May 2012

Bitterwallet - Microsoft logoMicrosoft, 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.

    So, my idea for an app to give you the ability to fist Bill gates with the aid of a gimp is a non-starter, then?

    Hey fuckface! I'm Steve Jobs and I'm on the way up again. I've increased the output on the infernal "Samsung Galaxy whatever" line by 74% thanks to my new 'retina' torture technology. (hot pins in the eyes basically) Other than that spot on. Gatesy and Balmer can suck my dick (and will do when they get here).
