What would you call a service that bills itself as a venue “for generous men looking to spoil, and dynamic women looking for financial support with bills, or who just need some excitement in life!” And what would you call a company that bans dictionary apps for containing racy words but allows an app providing the aforementioned service in their store?
That’s prostitution and Apple for all you indecisive folks out there, two words you don’t often hear in the same sentence. The app in question is called SugarSugar and the sales pitch just writes itself, but they wrote one anyway: “The SugarSugar Dating App will be available for download on June 1st through SugarSugar.com and iTunes, and will be compatible with iPhone, iPod touch, iPad, Android, and BlackBerry devices. The app will use GPS technology to instantly identify those seeking ‘mutually beneficial’ arrangements within the user’s vicinity. After ‘checking in, the application will map out the profiles of nearby members. Users will be able to trade stats, show photos or send messages to arrange an effortless rendezvous.” Better move fast if the pitch grabbed you though, for all its faults Apple usually doesn’t let slips like this one stand for very long.
