Grindr: The Booty Call iPhone App

My hot friend/man slut, Eric, who gets more booty than a pirate, has made me swear to keep his big gay secret for months. But over the weekend, I got him to tell me everything he knows about the techie version of cruisin’. Or as he put it, “Fine, you can tell the breeders about Grindr.” Yay! Grindr is an iPhone application for those looking for one-night stands. It will show you photos of potential hookups and map out the exact location of men in your neighborhood just looking to get in your pants. Well, not our pants, perse, since it’s “The go-to place for gay, bi, and curious men to meet.” Sigh. On the upside: “Location-based Grindr is FREE, FAST, and FUN.” Sounds promising, no? If Grindr were to cross over to straight users, would you use it? [Grindr]

The Art Lovers’ iPhone App

iPhone users with way bigger bank accounts than me, listen up: Christie’s (the fancy-pants NYC auction house) has a new iPhone app. Apparently, it “allows you to browse over 450 auctions in over 80 categories including all areas of fine and decorative arts, jewelry, photographs, collectibles, wine, and more.” Great news for auction-nuts, but one clarification—you can’t actually place a bid on anything from your phone. (Wouldn’t that be dangerous!? It would take drunk eBaying to a whole new level when a package arrives containing your new Paul Klee original, the painting you have zero recollection buying, even if your Chase account remembers!) But see something you like? Place a call and they’ll raise the paddle for you. [Christie's via Men.style.com] Keep reading »

Is The iPhone The New Vehicle Of The Porn Industry?

What is Apple’s stance on pornographic iPhone applications? The company has been fighting off some bad press lately after having to ban two super sexy applications that slipped through the cracks (no pun intended). The problems came from “hot or not” type apps, which allow users to upload suggestive pictures of women (or young girls, sigh). While one company’s rule states no nude photos are allowed, bikini and lingerie shots are okay. The user-generated content is monitored, but not reviewed in detail. Keep reading »

Your iPurity Ring Will Keep You From Being An iSlut

Having a little trouble staying a virgin until your wedding night? Do you also have an iPhone? Then download the Purity Ring iPhone app where you can take a pledge to be chaste until marriage and look at a digital picture of a purity ring, instead of wearing one. [Cause that would be, like, totally embarrassing. -- Editor]

According to the Guardian, the iPhone app has pre-recorded pledges for both boys and girls and will only display the ring after the pledge is made. Available at the iTunes store, kiddies. But so you know, further investigation is needed to ascertain whether you can actually count on a digital purity ring when temptation strikes… [Guardian UK] Keep reading »

Will You And Your Boyfriend Have Cute Kids? Find Out On Your Phone

iPhone Apps You Shouldn’t Be Without

I have to admit, before last night, I had never downloaded an app. I protested profusely against them for as long as I could, but now I find myself wanting to download more and more. (I went through the same routine with the iPhone, insisting that nothing could be more confusing and unnecessary than having a phone, iPod, and internet combined into one, but when I was given the device as a gift, I soon came to love, er, be obsessed with it.)

MyVibe: First Vibrator App Approved By Apple

There’s a new iPhone vibrator application on the market, but unlike its predecessors, this one is approved by Apple — and it’s FREE. MyVibe — probably the only x-rated app approved by Apple — was created in response to users’ desire for “’discreet’ vibrators, especially things that look like something else so that they can use it via travel, not worry about their kids finding them, etc.” Yeah, but this vibrator doesn’t just look like something else, it is something else — something one regularly puts next to her face. Isn’t that sort of a conflict of interests? Anyway, sexual heath expert Dr. Debby Herbenick gave it a test drive — check out her comments after the jump. Keep reading »

iPanties: Unlock Your Crotch

Apple’s ubiquitous “i” has found its way to our nether regions — or, at least the fabric that covers them. iPanties are the latest in a long list of products to get “i”dolized. With a “slide to unlock” guide along the crotch, these panties are cute and helpful…and the possibility for downloadable applications are endless.

Who’s Gonna Play A Fashion Video Game?

Fashion Week won’t roll around again until next September, but the people over at 505 Games are hard at work on a video game that simulates the experience for peasants like us who won’t be sitting front row inside those hallowed tents. With a little help from IMG and uber-famous makeup artist Pat McGrath, 505 will be putting out a video game for iPhone, Nintendo, Microsoft, and Sony consoles that promises “a true insider’s point of view.” Keep reading »

More Mature iPhone Apps Coming Soon

Rumor has it that iPhone OS 3.0, which should be released this summer, will allow for more “mature” apps. Apple has improved the parental controls, which in theory will let parents better control the apps their children are able to download and the content they have access to on the device. Although the responsibility of content filtering will be on the parents, Apple may have to work in a ratings system so parents can judge whether their kids should be allowed to have a particular app on their phone. But don’t expect to be inundated with “adults-only”-themed apps. A ton of X-rated content wouldn’t necessarily fit Apple’s corporate image. [The Apple Blog] Keep reading »
